Poured from a 22-oz. bomber into a pint glass. About two fingers of head. Color was caramel honey toffee. Brownish white lacing with some bubbles on the top. Wet, uneven and sporadic film on the sides.
Smelled lemon citrus hops up front. Also some lime piny notes in there. Sweet floral notes. Fairly malty, but still refreshing on the nose.
Very balanced taste, could hardly taste the alcohol. Lemon citrus hops really came through here. The maltiness seemed to balance the citrus hops out. So smooth.
Medium body. Average carbonation. Slight bitter, but smooth finish. Refreshing feeling.
Really liked this beer as I do with most of the ones from Karl Strauss. Smoot h and very drinkable. saxo (18364) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are rich bitter hops, flowers, citrus, pine, peach and malt. Lovely bitter finish. huineman (691) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 2, 2016
Pours hazy dark golden, persistent off-white head. Aroma is pure American IPA: grapefruit, mango, passionfruit, white flowers. Taste is bold, fresh, tart and very, very bitter (quite balanced, though). Very nice powerful IPA, oh yeah. You get what you bought. ghawener (1607) - Santa Tecla, EL SALVADOR - JUL 12, 2012
Bottle: Another strong, potent, over the top DIPA: it’s getting boring. It just may be time to explore other beer styles. Food Pairing: Strong cheese. ACHops (1584) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 16, 2012
22 oz bottle from the local Albertson’s here in SD. Pours cloudy orange with a creamy head. Aroma is floral hops and belgian yeast. Taste is big grapefruit and floral hops, with a slightly sweet and syrupy mouthfeel. Nice nutty malt body brings the ABV up to balance. Finishes bitter but not pucker-worthy. Not spectacular, especially considering the local competition in this category, but a solid IIPA.

Pours hazy golden color with a large white head. Hops and tropical fruits on the nose, orange peel, some pine needles and lots of caramel malts. Sweetish orange, mango, some apricot, caramel malts and resinous hops. Full-bodied, bitter fruity palate, lingering sweetish caramel finish. Nice balance and alcohol is well hidden. On a side note, goes well with spicy food.
On tap at the San Diego downtown brewpub. It poured a cloudy orange color with a small tan head. The aroma was of floral hops and some belgian yeast. The taste was of grapefruit, floral hops, with a slightly sweet and syrupy mouthfeel. Tasty IIPA. yiannnos (1254) - , CYPRUS - MAY 27, 2015
