Man, the appearance really hurts this one. Reviewing from memory now... Pours a flat copper amber with no head. I mean no head. Winds up looking like beer that has been left out overnight. Everything else makes up for it and it winds up being a middle of the road "good" beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is lightly roasted malts paired with a fairly well pronounced hoppy profile. Light caramel and biscuit. Taste is a light sweet and crispy maltiness that isnt too special but is well balanced with a slightly pronounced bitterness. Appearance is a clear gold with a pearl head that retains fairly well.

On tap at C4 Deli in Santa Ana. Murky tangerine with a fluffy white head. Spicy, slightly catty hop bitterness hits hard but is tamed somewhat by a good caramel sweetness. This is the creamiest IPA Iíve ever had! Leaves a strong, delicious bitter taste behind. Very drinkable DIPA.

Poursa a copper orange with a two finger off white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of sweet malts, caramel, citrus, subdued pine, and some toasted malts. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with some additional hops and some herbal and grassy hop notes, backed up by a pretty nice malt backbone. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a moderately bitter, slightly dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a decently tasty DIPA that is pretty well balanced and pretty drinkable for a 8.5 abv beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Iím drinking this and I finally noticed that I didnít have any real notice of what I was drinking - a sure sign of a less than average brew. I already know this is two in a row in the lame category for iipaís from Teneya (that IPA was killer tho). Come ooooonnnn buffalo. Cloudy orange amber with a skiff and good lacing. You know - an uninspiring IPA almost pisses me off - what the fuck is the point?? Nose: creamsicle, cotton candy - both without being overly sweet, weak caramel, weaker candy canes. That was a serious struggle to find that stuff - how warm do I gotta let this go? Taste is lacking. This jockey game is a horrific watch. Near to medium bodied but only when warm. Some fruit, heat minus the alcohol, gf of some sort, oily, nonsweet caramel. Not bad but this is so forgettable. Easily worse than the one before this. Pretty much a pointless purchase.

Bomber at a hotel in Phoenix. Sediment on the bottom. Pale color with light foam. Smells were subdued but there. Taste was malty hops.

Bottle - Resin and pine with a caramel bready backbone. Pale clear copper with a bubbly white head. Bitter, nutty, earthy and resinous with a bit of pine. The resin and earthy qualities is all you really get.
