3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a cloudy apricot with a thin white head. Aroma was grapefruit malt and some pine. On the palate you get sweet fruit followed by malt and finishing with a lingering bitterness of some pine and grassy notes. Mouthfeel was medium and smooth but did have a little alcohol burn.

Pours golden orange from the bottle with a strong smell of booze and a little hops. A nice taste but the booze overpowers the hops.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a bright golden orange with a few fizzy bubbles and a thin tight white head. The nose is mildly resinous with moderate pine and a solid citrus based hop, a few toasty caramel makes as well. Solid sweet mid palate with a regular San Diego style sweet smack of mild resin and s splash of citrus. full bodied and a solid moderate bitterness with a bit of alcohol presence. overall a good beer but not great.

Bottle. Pours an amber color with a medium white head. Nose is hoppy and the taste is a little bit bitter, but without a lot of maltiness to it. Not a bad brew...

poured a foggy dark amber. aroma was not overwhelming but good nonetheless. started off feeling very well balanced but the hops bite hi hard on the finish. all in all a good beer. I’d definitely have this one again

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 1 gallon growler box. Pours clear amber in color with thin white head. Aroma is alcohol and a bit of hops. Taste is slightly sweet up front with a fair amount of bitterness in the back end. Decent, but pales in comparison to some other DIPAs from SD.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Caramel orange brown in color... Aroma is sweet citrus.... Flavor is caramel malts, toffee with finish of bitter citrus hops... Super malty for an ipa... Doesn't taste like a west coast ipa, very much east coast... Marginal at best
