8.2% San Diego-style IPA with complex grapefruit, lemon, tangerine and pine-like character. The hops are supported by a clean, dry and bready background character. We made this beer for all of you big hoppy beer lovers. This beer won’t last long, so get it before we drink it all.

Notas cítricas y frutales que dominan en nariz. Color amarillo brillante, filtrada, carbonatacion media, y buena Corona de espuma. En boca nuevamente cítricos y notas frutales, buen amargor. Al paladar domina el amargor sin ser agresivo, buena integración de las notas cítricas, piña, mandarina y naranja. Cerveza bastante refrescante, agradable, amarga pero a la vez refrescante.

MartinT (8550) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2015
My Bottom Line:
This elegant Double IPA shares citrus fruit and ginger-like spiciness before moving into piney resins and their tasty bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A healthy head of foam decorates the shiny golden.
-Cereals are delicate and mostly offer a honey coulis.
-The mouthfeel is agreeably lean for the style.
-Drinkability is very high for an 8% brew.

On tap at Slater’s 50/50, San Diego.

Lemon peel grassy aroma. Some alcohol heat on the palate, very very bitter and a fair amount of hop presence in the flavor and end notes on aroma. Good brew.

Pretty good but stacked up against other SD IPAs it is average, with pine cedar aroma, sight residual sweetness. But good beer here,
