Slightly cloudy orange pour with a white head. Really dank grapefruit and pine hop aroma. Some tropical fruit, a hint of alcohol, orange peel, and light grass. Sweet caramel malt, too. The flavor is a bit on the sweet side, somewhat boozy, and lots of pine, grapefruit, and orange peel. More grass than expected and a light bitterness. DSG (15589) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 16, 2015
[2/21/15] Draught at Rip Current North Park in San Diego. Clear golden. “Green” hops aroma, kinda dank. Flavor has some malt sweetness, lots of “green” dank hops and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied. hopdog (13374) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2015
On tap at the Rip Current (North Park) Brew Pub. Poured a golden color with a small sized off white head. Fruity, citrus with some pine and caramel. Ibrew2or3 (9047) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Poured up on tap at the brewery where it exhibits a crystal clear deep gold body that supports a near white head of foam. The aroma is resiny and spicy wood, grapefruit, malt sweetened lemon notes and then resiny pine off in the background. This is a big flavorful brew that has a strong lemon and grapefruit and herbal hop rip currents. Another sip brings up rich and vibrant flavors like sweet malts being crushed by firm resiny pine hops, grapefruit citrus hop bitterness and then a little bit of tangelo hop flavor. Toward the finish a little bit of lemon bubbles to the surface as well as thin notes of spicy, herbal and faintly garlic notes that show up amid the big yet fading resiny pine hops and citrusy grapefruit. Wow! This is money. (wow, am I even drinking the same beer as the other raters?) joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - MAY 25, 2015
On tap at the North Park tasting room. It pours a clear golden orange color with a small white head. The aroma has some sweet hop candy, green apple jolly rancher, mango and lime. The flavor is more citrus forward with some more lime notes, nice florals and hop candy. Lightly spiced bitter finish. Good one.

10/14/2014. On tap. Amber with a white head. Malt, caramel and tropical fruit aromas. Bitter hops, caramel, malt forward DIPA. Nice and not over done. skmikeg (1826) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2013
On tap at Tornado. Pours a amber orange with a one finger off white head. Aroma is of citrus (grapefruit and orange mainly) pine, tropical fruits/apricot, sweet malts, and a little alcohol. Has a medium body with a slightly watery mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi bitter finish. Overall, a decently tasty but very drinkable DIPA.
