Tap @ the brew pub. Pours a mostly clear golden orange with a frothy off white head. Nose of pine and citrus hops with a good amount of sweet malt in the background. Quite sticky on the palate, a nice IIPA.

Sample at Maui Brewing in Lahaina. Pours an orange gold with decent tan head. Aroma was deep with piney hops and some malt. Taste was lush and bitter with west coast hops, the malt evident and welcome to balance this monster out. It all felt a little unrefined and yet satisfying. A bit of an untamed animal. Wild and yet beautiful.

Tasted at the February Northern California Beer Tasting. This IPA pours a medium orange gold color from a 16oz(?) can. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, tropical even and piney hops. Medium bodied Double India Pale Ale. The malts are caramel and fruity. The hops are piney and a touch citrusy. Nice balance. Good carbonation. I like it, a DIPA in a can. Hides the 8,5% alcohol very well. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter

Draft at the brewpub. C-hop nose, darkish amber body, nice white head. Well-balanced hops with crystal malts. Best beer I tried from this brewery.

GG (2326) - NorCal, California, USA - FEB 26, 2008
NorCal Feb ’08 - One of the more rare beer styles found in a can. Suprising too because you’d think that maybe a can might preserve it’s contents a bit better than a glass bottle. Either way, this beer was decent. The beer is copper in color with a nice two finger thick white head. Aroma was very tropical-like, that shifted gears from time to time with a piney hop attack. Malts were sweet, peppery with an unerlying nail polish like aroma ot the whole beer. Flavor was sweet, with a nice citrus hop character to it. No way I’d consider this a double IPA. IPA at best and it’d be a nice one. But a DIPA? Uh-uh.

Waiting for this beer to be added...had on honeymoon 10/06. Pours out a nice copper color with a moderate white head. Floral/citrus hops on the aroma. Flavor is nice and balanced mostly citrus hops, some sweet malt balance. Dry alcohol on the finish. Overall enjoyable, but maybe more so because of the setting.

Copper pour with a soapy white head. Awesome fresh hop aroma, Peaches, grapefruit, tropical fruits. The flavour has much of the same elements quite tasty, the alcohol is undetectable but for a double IPA I was expecting more of a hop kick. Tasty just the same but more of an IPA.
