On tap @ Toronado SD. Clear medium gold with a smalloff-white head, down to a thick ring and thin film before long. Some sweaty citrus and spicy hops dominate with some light caramel and earth behind. Flavor seems like an amped up SNPA with a little more citrus--the same as the aroma. Bitterness peaked @ a 4-5 in the semi-dry finish. Medium body with moderate prickly carbonation. Alcohol was masked well, but I didn’t enjoy this a whole helluva lot. Severely lacking for a DIPA--almost overstated if advertised as an IPA.

Tap at Naja’s. Nose is dank hops, biscuity malt. Caramel color. Flavor has one of those sour, grainy hop stings up front and a bit of an over-balancing malt bill. Well unified with a moderately long finish.
