I come to White Labs looking to geek out, not necessarily to try good beers, but to try various yeast strains and use it as a learning experience. That said, this is a DAMN good IIPA that I’d gladly drink anywhere in San Diego. Best individual beer that I have had at White Labs (no other yeast based alternatives of this beer were on at the time). Pours with a clear golden hued body with a medium sized white head that lasts. Aromas are of huge tangerine, DMTS, dank, CTZ and Summit if I had to guess. Hoppy, clean, light mineral. Deliciously hoppy aroma.Flavors are grassy, DMTS, tangerine, dank, resin and pungent hops. Medium mineral, dry, light esters. Dry, lively bubbles, medium bodied. Great DIPA!
