Pours a tawny gold, hazy and doesn't form alot of head yet manages to leave an attractive ring of lacing behind. Retention is basically none since there was no head to begin with.

Hops dominate but beneath lies a steady honey dipped grain and caramel malt backbone. Tropical hops of mangoes, papaya, sweet pineapple with some stock pine and red citrus. Floral yet very sweet with a tinge of alcohol.

Ample malt comes in with a tight bready and honey profile some sweetening molasses and caramel sneak in before a blast of citrus and piney hops, the aftertaste is a very pungent pine that balances the sweetness of the malt and alcohol barely detectable on the back end as the beer dries with a big pine note.

Average body weighed down by the yeast. Moderate and appropriate carbonation, the sweetness hides the alcohol and the hops balance nicely. Dries well.

Really good DIPA to satisfy the hop fix. A bit heavy and dank for the summer but made for San Diego where the May and June months are kept under a cloud and temperatures moderate. Tropical and robust come to mind with this brew.

Like Port's Mongo but it hides it's alcohol better. The sweetness might be overwhelming for some but drunk chilled, it balances out the hops in an ideal manner. Fruity and tropical aroma that translates somewhat into the taste. Overall a great DIPA and one to revisit annually.

Oooo dat a smooth sucker. Yeah buddy. Ending the night with this bad boi cuz Raul just knows how. Smoother than Aishwarya Rai after getting threaded, Raul is done into the silky smoothness of this lil thang. Purring like a Panther, Raul wants to dig his claws deeper...

Beautiful like a poltergeist, Raul says,"boo!"
