Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into a Russian River pint glass.
A: Pours a clear copper with a slight chill haze. Forms a thin white head atop fairly low visible carbonation.
S: Toffee malts in near-balance with grapefruit rind and resinous hops.
T: Bright ruby red grapefruit dominates up front. Then some tropical fruit hops, sweet toffee and bready malts, and a touch of resin and floral hoppiness near the swallow. Moderate hop bitterness in the hang.
M: Medium body, carbonation sensation on the low side, and moderate alcohol presence.
O: Nothing bad here; nor anything great. It's a very drinkable but ultimately forgettable DIPA.

N: Caramel malts, citrus and piney hops with some floral notes.
T: Citrus (oranges, tangerines), peach/pear, piney, mild sweetness and faintly dank.
M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Finishes with a sweet malt and pine resin.

Pours an effervescent copper with 2 fingers of eggshell white head. Nice head retention & lacing
S: Pineapple & grapefruit & leafy hops
T: Follows the nose, pears, a touch of breadyness & orange rind up front. Grapefruit pith, a touch of tangerine & pear, plus a little boozeyness as this warms. Finishes with tons of tropical fruit & a bit of toffee sweetness & dryness
MF: Fairly chewy, soft carbonation, nicely balanced
Solid DIPA, not hoppy enough for hard core hopheads I'm sure, easy drinker more or less
