At times overlooked, but quite possibly the quintessential San Diego DIPA. Hits all the traditional notes of grapefruit, orange, tangerine, and pine. Perfectly balanced, it has the drinkability of a much lesser ABV brew. No alcohol presence whatsoever. One of my favorite beers, period. It's so well put together, why wouldn't it be? Approachable, yet plenty hoppy for the most discerning hop head...

Exceptional fruity tones without the heat. Medium body feel and nice malt sweetness.
