On tap at Bier Academy in Canyon Country, CA.
Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt and earthy, dank, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with onion and garlic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is pretty tasty but has the onion and garlic presence in the flavor that I am not a huge fan of.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours into an impy nonic a clear rich deep bronze with a sticky tightly formed one finger white head atop,just great color and clarity.Aromas of piney hops and alcohol dipped dark fruit,alot of sweetness wich sadly comes with the style.First off dark fruit and alcohol on the palate then piney hops come into play but the malt and alcohol play the biggest role here.Another DIPA that promises big hops but is too sweet,not a bad beer by any means,I like it but the hops are only a small part of the story here.
