Pours a copper color decent thin tight head. Aroma is citrucy orange and a bit of grapefruit and sweet malt. Taste taste follows the aroma well with some spice notes upfront and some pineyness. Pretty tasty Dipa.

Poured up on tap at the Oggi’s in Point Loma and in an aroma killing tumbler too. It has a clear copper body with thin gold edges and supporting a thin dirty white head of foam. The aroma offers up pine hops mixed with malts and a bit of citrus hoppiness. The taste delivers a millisecond of malt sweetness before robust levels of pine hops hit hard along with a moderate degree of grapefruit like citrus hops. The citrusy hops exhibit a bit of flavor hops and quickly get into robust levels of resiny hop bitterness. Solid full flavor IIPA.

Crazily, I still have 2012 GABF notes to enter! Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A big nose of lemons and oranges, some light zest. One sided blast of citrus fruits, low bitterness, light finish of earthy malt and bitter lemons. Good.

Sampled @ Oggi’s Glendale draft night! Foggy burnt tangerine pour with a 1/4 inch eggshell crown. Nice evergreen, bright citrus, and peppery spice in the nose. Grapefruit pith, orange peel, and lemon zest in flavor. Mild caramel backbone. Pretty decent beer.
