L: Poured into a Pub Glass with a crisp and clear dark copper hue. 1 1/2 finger white frothy head with amole amounts of lacing. S: A clean piney aroma; not as much fruit aroma I typically find in big IPA's. Some alcohol on the nose as well. T: Well balanced. Nice malt backing that's not too sweet, but enough to cut the hop bitterness. M: lots of body and dry finish. O: A very good beer. Cheers!

Poured a golden yellow with orange highlights that had a half finger of head and left a little bit of lacing sticking to the glass. The nose was alright with a decent hop pine aroma, sweet malts, and hints of citrus. Upfront there was a grapefruit hop punch with pine, citrus accents. It had a good malt backbone as well. The brew was medium body with a good amount of carbonation that had a slight sweet but hop bitter crisp finish. It drank good and was probably one of the best beers they offered at MEB.

A deep, dark, auburn with orange edges. Thick, soapy off-white head forms and sticks around. Lots of lacing down the glass. A beautiful beer.

A very pleasing and pungent tropical and citrus nose. While the typical grapefruit and orange notes are here, there's a distinct apricot aroma as well.

A very bitter DIPA with strong floral and pungent citrus notes. Clean finish and remarkably drinkable, even with just a touch of alcohol warmth that reminds me of this beer's strength.

Medium to thick bodied, a touch slick with alcohol, ample carbonation. A touch of stinging, biting alcohol.

A tasty and impressively bitter San Diego DIPA. It does everything right and I feel lucky this beer (and this brewery) is just a few exits away from me on the 78. Keep up the good work!
