Big bottle pour....btw, the label is an awesome piece of artwork! I would love to find a print of it. Wafting scents of citrus, piney hops before I even start drinking! Copper/straw color with a tiny haze, very nice appearance. Head is fine and foamy about 3/8", but with lots of fine bubbles. Great aromas of citrusy pine, some alcohol (10%abv btw!), mild grassy notes and a hint of mash. Well balanced in the taste department, the hops is prevalent up front with a light bite of bitterness, moves to a sweeter finish. Again, the alcohol is also noticeable that adds a bit of warmth, which I find interesting. The finish is a tad thick, and the hops sticks around on the tongue till the next drink. Would have preferred a thinner finish, but I am still very impressed with this brew overall. Yes, I have to say that the earthquake state knows how to brew a very impressive IPA. This one is fully enjoyable, and the abv certainly catches up to you quickly! Damn!

22 oz. bottle. Pours clear gold, with a medium, fizzy, tan head. The nose is butterscotch, rye, spruce, and strong floral notes. Sweet and malty, with a smooth, assertive bitterness. Medium to heavy body, smooth, bubbly, and clean. This is a solid, nicely aromatic and balanced IPA.

Dark amber color, big beige head. Aroma of caramel, citrus, toffee, honey, piney and spicy hops. Sweet bitter taste with nice hoppy bitter finish and a bit dry aftertaste. Medium body and average carbonation. Very nice double IPA.

Lore (2665) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 8, 2017
almost clear dark orange to amber colour, large, creamy off-white head; aroma of pine resin, grapefruit, orange zest oils, lemongrass, celery and biscuit; taste of devastating hoppy bitterness with resiny and grapefruity notes, slight celery as well as biscuity-malty and honey sweetness - really schizophrenic! I love it!

Nice hazy look with lots of hops and some strength in nose and taste. Palate is longlasting and also with hoppy bitterness.

ciocanelu (2459) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 29, 2017
Clear orange color with off-white head. Aroma is really malty with some biscuits and candied orange notes. Taste starts bitter upfront with some sweet malt in the background. The hops are mostly orange and pine forward. Medium to light body, medium carbonation. Overall it’s a decent west coast, really classic DIPA.

On tap at St Augustine’s in Vancouver. A medium amber beer with faint hop and malt nose. Slightly sweet, moderately hopped, some background malts. Not to my mind a great beer, but a very nice one, and the niceness is in the delicate balance of hops and malts. 3.7

3.8
jandorris (668) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAR 18, 2017
Piana bardzo ładna, piwo o złocistej barwie, klarowne. W zapachu żywiczno ziołowe. To samo w smaku, poza tym trochę karmeli. Alkohol schowany pięknie.

migwell (365) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 7, 2017
Bottle to tulip. Good aroma of grapefruit and hops, very nice initial taste of citrus, malt, fruit, hops and alcohol. Unfortunately this is followed by a burst of lingering dry mouth bitterness, which seems common to many left-coasters. But for that, it is a well made brew that I will avoid in future.
