look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

1st time had in bottle from Case purchased at a distributor in Franklin, PA. Don't know how it was stored or freshness because it was three from the bottom in a stack of 10 of random cases in the shop. Shop was cold, on a hot August day so probably not heat stricken.

2nd time - On draft at Brewhouse in San Diego, CA. Brother in Law knows the owner so got a pour fresh from fermentor without carb. Review is from 1st tasting.

A: Good orange color typical of an IPA. Carbonation gave a good 1/2 inch head the whole time, poured into a brandy snifter.

S: Rich in CA citrus-y hoppiness. Grapefruit front, with a slight lemon/pine finish. Sweetness comes off the nose probably from the malt bill.

T: Just like a DIPA should taste like. Great sweet on the front of the tongue with a prominent hop bite at the back. Grapefruit piney linger on the tongue.

M: Malty, but seemed to leave quickly. No sugary residue feeling with a swish around the mouth. Not dry either.

O: Upon initial tasting, thought I would like to see what it would taste like fresh, and upon second tasting, definitely would like to keep it fresh. It was a great find in PA and mostly got for novelty purposes because my Brother in Law didn't know what I was bringing back to the cabin. Glad he was able to surprise me with the second taste. Would get it again in CA if I couldn't find any other "Wants" on tap.

S- Great name, great label.

A- looks pretty standard, very little head medium carbonation. Copper color.

S- Not too impressive. Can smell the malt more than the hops.

T- More interesting than I expected. I can't say i love it though. Very heavy malt presence. Syrupy, sweet. One flavor i can't quite put my finger on, (juniper berries??). The finish is fairly dry and bitter compared to the very sweet start.

M- typical IIPA mouthfeel.

O- Not terrible. I may revisit
