COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This DIPA is a bad ass. Straight up. It’s hopiness isn’t just limited to the floral nose or lingering bitterness but a full hop flavor all the way through your palate. We bitter with a Super Alpha, and follow it up with a few flavoring additions throughout the boil. A massive dry hop of Simcoe and Amarillo create a huge aroma profile that really comes through in a big way.

Shared bomber poured to snifters with yeasty cloudiness to the orangy color, decent soft white head foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose started with malt & sweetness, then grapefruit, pine, and some orange scent. The flavor presented nice, moderate hop bitterness with some lingering quality, medium body and hidden alcohol. A well rounded, solid single IPA, but not hefty enough to claim DIPA status, imo.

Golden color out of the bottle with a lasting foamy off white head. Nose of hop pellets and grapefruit. Thick mouthfeel, Syrupy with lots of orange marmalade, grapefruit rind and yeasty bread. Long grapefruit zest bitterness in the finish. Nice IIPA.

Bomber from Bev4Less. Let me just say, I met one of these guys at Bev4Less a few weeks ago... awesomely personable and knowledgeable. Good guy who makes good beer. Pours hazy golden. Decent amount of lacy white foam head. Bready malts, herbal and resiny hops, a little bit of cheesy and earthy yeast tones, and some banana funkiness that compliments rather than detracts. Medium sweet (a great sign for this style) medium bitter... yes, this is not heavy bitter, and well-balanced throughout the palate until... oops, the bitter end... but that came after a nearly 90 second delay. Impressive. Full body, creamy, somewhat sticky texture, lively carbonation and a nice, looong bitter finish. Really, really good beer. Nailing it guys. Now, keep it up.

22oz. bottle shared James at Zach & Matt’s tasting. Pours clear golden yellow. Aroma of light citrus (grapefruit and lemons) with some light pine notes. taste is lightly bitter of hops and pine resin. Smooth finish with a light, crisp hop bite. enjoyable and very drinkable.

SDalkoholic (2141) - Linda Vista, California, USA - APR 20, 2013
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Appeared as a dark and dense wild golden honey hue with a frothy topping of foam that left behind trails of lacing. Aroma jumps out with a bright smell of fruit and reminds me exactly of my memory of opening up a fruit roll up packet. Besides that dominate smell of the fruit there is notes of acidic citrus and wheaty bread malts that add structure to nose of this complex DIPA. The flavor follows suite with a taste of sour citrus juice along with an extremely fruity taste of sweet citrus fruits such as oranges and tangerines. The drink does deliver a strong dosage of hop pellets and bitter green buds oozing with oils and acids but this comes across as too astringent. Okay price but finish is salty and this is by no means on the same level as some of the other Imperial IPA’s being made in San Diego.
