look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a translucent pale amber, capped by a fizzy two-finger off-white head. Moderate retention, very little lacing left on the glass.

S: Strong pine aroma, backed by some light juicy citrus - orange and a bit of grapefruit. Caramel backbone comes through a bit...good smell but nothing particularly impressive.

T: Very malty for a DIPA, caramel malts are the first taste along with a hint of vanilla. Pine hops overtake the malts in the middle of the mouth along with some earthy notes. Finishes sweet with very little residual bitterness.

M: Medium body with moderate carbonation, very smooth.

D: Very quaffable and the ABV is well hidden.

Overall, a fairly enjoyable beer but the smell and taste pale in comparison to many of the DIPAs available here in San Diego.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass, the beer pours a vibrant orange-copper coloring, but extremely hazy, almost opaque. The beer has a chunky, thick off-white coloring with densely packed bubbles. Fresh hops aromas coming with this brew, and highlighted by some citrusy tones that help make the overall smells very enticing. The flavors is malty and sweet on the initial punch, but the hops come sneaking in to solidify and balance the flavors. Not overpowering by any means, the hops remain a background player throughout the beer drinking experienve. Citrus notes in the grapefruit range are combined with some peppery spice flavors, and the beer transitions quickly through a short-lived finish. A very slight tart and bitter aftertaste vanishes quickly from the tongue, and that helps make this beer an easy drinker. Very tasty, but not overpowering, and the ABV is subtle throughout the brew.

Thanks to JFH for this bottle!

Aroma:Hugely sweet malt smell. A little bit of slightly citrusy hops.

Appearance:Deep amber in color, not too much head.

Taste:The foretaste is full of deep rich hops. Pine in the foretaste turns to apricot in the midtaste. The hops are nicely balanced with the sweet malt. The aftertaste is mostly bitter hops.

Mouthfeel:This beer has a medium to heavy body There is a little hot alcohol there, as well as astringency in the mid to aftertaste.

Drinkability:This is a very well done beer. It's a little too heavy to be sessionable, but it's got great flavors all the way through.

12 oz. bottle poured into a globe glass, pouring a light amber with half an inch of slightly off white foam. Bright golden in the light just a hint of haze.

Pleasant hop aroma of muddled grapefruit, pine and some peppery spice. Bit of caramel malt in the background and a touch of alcohol is notable on a deep inhale. Hop spice expands with warming to better cloak said alcohol however. And while never grabbing you by the throat with an onslaught of hops, it does entice throughout.

Flavor is moderately sweet with a touch of caramel and a citric flavor leaning more towards orange and tangerine than the nose suggests. Carbonation is medium allowing for a full and creamy feel that still isn't too sweet. Bitterness is a bit subdued however as the malt profile masks the ABV better on the taste than the smell.

Overall a good IPA to have with a meal and with a good lingering finish.
