Pours dark amber with a thin white head. Malty and very sweet. Not a good DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bule (575) - California, USA - APR 30, 2013
On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours a brown color with a fine head. Some hop flavors at the start that dissipate quickly through the taste to leave just the maltiness.

Dwalsh1542 (24) - Petaluma, California, USA - APR 28, 2013
Moderately hoppy and drinkable. On tap at my local pub. Dry hoppy finish, pours a bold dark amber and clear. Pretty good offering from a small brewery

Gription79 (2158) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 31, 2013
On drat at the brewery. Big grassy character up front, resiny, caramel malts. I would enjoy a lot more hop flavor and aroma. Clean and not bad overall.

marcus (6017) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Bottle from Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours reddish copper with a modest beige head and a strange aroma like sweaty sox and garlic. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with a carbonated bitter finish. Not bad.

bb (6697) - Alamo, California, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Draft. Rich amber beer with a tan head. Grapefruit and light pine aroma. Pine and grapefruit flavor with light darker malts. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Pine and grapefruit linger with light caramel and a slight medicinal backing.

Wittales (564) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Appearance was clear orangish caramel with creamy off white diminishing 1 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are soft grapefruit, pine, orange, lemon, and resin for hops. Sweet pale, caramel malt backbone. Taste was smooth fruity hops of lemon, grapefruit, pine, orange, melon with hints of resin, the sweet malty backbone. Palate was creamy soft CO2 with meduim body, lasting soft fruity sweet malty balanced dryish finish. A not-typical west coast DIPA more of a East coast IPA...

jazz88 (2528) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Bottle. A reddish brown color with an off-white head. I was surprised by the double IPA designation as it seemed more like an American Strong Ale. The sweet malts came through equally with a hop profile in both the aroma and flavor. Chalk it up to being so well balanced.

Ratman197 (9042) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Bomber poured a clear reddish amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of grassiness, earthiness, carmel, grapefruit and light pine. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of grassiness, earthiness, grapefruit, biscuit and light pine with a smooth dry bitter lingering grassy finish.
