On tap at Urge. Pours a medium orange with a small white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of sweet citrus,pine, tropical fruits, and sweet malts. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with some nice juicy citrus and tropical pineapple notes. Has a medium-full body with a creamy mouthfeel and a slightly dry, moderately bitter, medium finish. Overall, a pretty nice DIPA that is very refreshing and bright.

On tap @ Stone "World Bistro & Gardens" in Escondido. Pours pale golden orange with thin creamy head. Aroma is sweet citrus and a hint of hops.
