3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear dark copper color, with a moderate head and nice clingy lacing. Aroma pine and some grapefruit with malt sweetness and a bit of fruit in the background. The taste is a mix of grapefruit and bit of pine with some caramel sweetness and bit of fruit. Has a nice bitterness a bit tart and a clean finish. Medium body, crisp and quite refreshing. Nice beer for the style without being a hop bomb.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Raleys in Vacaville CA. Pours a hazy gold color and smells of citrus fruit. Very bitter and hoppy with the taste of once again citrus. A little unbalanced on the palate knocked it down a bit. Still a decent beer.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Hops Northwest in New Westminster. Served in a large snifter. A pale orange generous and aromatic head. Dark amber orange in color, with orange citrus on the nose. Hops very noticeable up front, with a surprisingly large caramel malt component also in the forefront. Not your ultimate bitter bomb, but nicely balanced, with more malt component than most of the modern west coast IPAs. A nice glass of suds!

Thanks to iNBe. A rather thirst quenching DIPA. OK, it was hot and I should have chosen a different beer but it was the only one cold and I probably drank the first half of the bottle too quickly. So it was grapefruity too. Rather good, but the serious hop heads will find it a bit mild. I liked it though. Serving: bottle
