Interesting DIPA. The thing is with this beer, it doesn't feel like a DIPA at all. Weak head on the beer, and despite an ABV of 9.7, mouth feel is very light as well as the nose. I liked the flavor: lots of citrus notes, especially lemon and bitter orange. I definitely didn't expect what i got with this beer. I'm glad i tried it, but probably wouldn't get it a second time. Interesting note: at the market where i picked this up, a tag advertised a RateBeer score of 97. Pretty drastic difference from beer advocate.....BA's rating is 77 "just OK" with user average reflecting the same. I knew there was a reason i preferred BA to RateBeer.

Aroma and taste are a bit onion like. I expected a citrusy west coast ipa. Color is copper and clear with white sticky head. I guess I don't care for the onion-vegetable hop flavor and smell.

Just okay. In a market where DIPAs are everywhere, this one does not stand out. Low aroma, body is too light. You could do better for the money.

awful upfront, awful finish--like eating ragweed and then licking a 2x4

Aroma of grain and a whiff of the compost pail. Standard orangey amber color with a slight foam. Carbonation is below par. It feels a little greasy in the mouth.

Intense, overpowering bitterness. A taste of spoiled fruit. Dishwatery aftertaste. Even a distinct hint of plastic. I find it hard to believe this is 10.4% as stated on the label. I thought it might be some bittering juice for a lager or six, but I wouldn't spoil a Colt 45 with this.

This is my least favorite brew from Oceanside. And maybe the single worst unspoiled DIPA ever in my experience. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Baron's Market in San Diego. Bottle code is 082614, which is just six weeks ago if I read right.
