Had on tap at the brewery. Review from notes.

A: Served in a goblet, the sister was a hazy golden orange with one finger of white head on top.

S: Lots of citrus/tropical fruit. Some grass, melon, grapefruit, lemon, and a little pine.

T: Similar to the aroma with plenty of tropical fruit, grapefruit, orange, orange zest, melon, and a slightly piney finish.

M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Hint of alcohol on the finish as it warms.

O: A really nice DIPA from Fremont, hopefully they will start to make it more often.

on-tap at the brewery

appearance: served in an unbranded chalice, bright pale-orange body, light beige film

smell: grapefruit, lemon zest, herbal, spicy notes

taste: Brewed with calypso and bravo hops - 2 varietals I'm not overly familiar with. Spicy and earthy - bitter grapefruit rind, moderate alcohol notes, sweet malt. Interesting - think I like The Brother better though

mouthfeel: medium, thick oily body

overall: good

Poured into a Fremont pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a half finger white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, orange family citrus, tropical fruit, citrus and lightly piney hops. Flavor follows aroma, with caramel malt supporting intense citrus hops with orange and lemon, piney resins. Lingering pine resin hop finish. Medium bodied with great carbonation. Advertised as an intense hop experience, this delivers. Unlike some palatte stripping IPAs, this has a nice supporting malt body that moderates the hop intensity. A little stark in the finish, but the balance of malt and herbal hop flavors makes this quite drinkable, perhaps too much so. The ABV is well covered and I had to pace myself with this one. I may not taste hops for a few days, but it was worth it. Really glad to see this in bombers and cans.

brewpub draft

a: small chalice serving, light amber in color, nicely retained off-white head

s: pale malts structure with a light-moderate dose of caramel sugars, the hops really shine - mostly tropical with a dose of fresh, young evergreen - tangerine, pine, grapefruit, and passionfruit included, sweet and juicy...

m: carbonation light-moderate, light-medium body

t: cleaner pale malts comprise the bulk of the body with a light dosing of more complex sugars, big fruit hops - a combo of tangerine, grapefruit bitterness, young pine, pineapple - richly hopped, bitterness big, balancing without overpowering, quite enjoyable

o: a high-quality dipa that tends more towards the hop side with only a balance of malts, my favored kind
