Bottle brought from San Fran, thx Erik!
Copper-orange pour, light white head. Caramel nose, booziness.
Fairly nutty flavour, nutmeg perhaps even. Quite sweet, candy sugar, sticky.
Mildly bitter, hoppy finish.

Bottle, shared with Parksy, TylerDurden, and Rosser. Deep orange colour, light golden pillowy head. Sweet papaya and tropical fruit aroma. Very sticky, sweet palate, loaded with tropical fruit character. Just a bit too sweet for my tastes.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clean, glassy, clear bodied IPA with a bold, orange color and a fine, airy bright white head. It looks the part of a Californian double IPA. It has a bad-ass aroma, packed with piney, resinous hops and clean, crisp caramel malts. Wow, this smells good.
It’s clean and crisp, fresh and sharply hop-forward in the mouth. Although clean and clear in both appearance and flavor, there’s also a doughey thickness that prevents it from being too thin overall. A strong alcohol presence easily dominates the finish, and couples well with the strong hop flavor to offer what I love the most about great double IPAs, while not having too much of a malty body. There’s some bitterness in the finish, but it doesn’t last long, as the alcohol steers the experience in a different direction.
Thin, but packed with lots of sticky, resinous hop and alcohol flavor with just enough sweetness to keep it in balance and leave a tasty combination of all of it behind on your lips. Great job, and a perfect example of a west-coast American double IPA in my

Pretty disappointed; didn't think much of this one after trying the "yang"....fair at best among the top notch IPA's

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
651 ml. bottle. The label reads keep refrigerated, but it was bought off the shelf. How long was it there? Pours a medium, well retained, off white head, over a clear, medium amber (SRM 12) body....nose is treacle, soft fruits with hints of peach, mango, light pine, resin.....taste is sweet toffee tones, with hints of light fruit leading to a heavy citrus hop bitter finish.....mouth feel medium, sticky, slightly astringent, alcohol warmth present, carbonation low but with a moderate acid finish. This I/DIPA has light complexity in the hop aromas, and the taste is dominated by the hop bitterness. The malt backbone is simple and adds little to the beer. As it warms, the balance becomes better with the simple malty pushing back. It still needs work. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6
