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.
