Thanks to hopodyssey for sharing this one at Tieman's tasting.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with earthy citrus zest 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 and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that has a very earthy citrus hop flavor.

Big foam on pouring into the tall nonic. More of a head than you often get from IPAs. Spritzy on the tongue but hardly a bubble to be seen. A little spoiled fruit in the aroma.

Spicy and sweet varieties of hops. Seems to go with the massive sweet malt. This is really heavy and strong. Bitter orange marmalade is the taste. Candied mango. Sharp and on the acidic side. Very bitter aftertaste. Even a little woody and astringent.

This is certainly not going to be a favorite DIPA. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Baron's Marketplace in San Diego for nine bucks.

On tap at Mother Earth.

A: Dark golden orange with good clarity and a big frothy head. Retention is very good and sheets of lacing are left behind.

S: Dank pine and earth with bright citrus notes: tangerine, orange, grapefruit, and mango. There's a hint of onion. Malt is redolent of bread and caramel but it doesn't overpower the hops.

T: The beer opens resinous and moderately bitter. Malt appears as caramel and provides a little balance and sweetness, though the beer is dry overall. Tangerine melds with grapefruit and orange pith. Alcohol is deftly masked in the bitter finish.

M: Medium in body with upper moderate carbonation. The mouthfeel is sticky and dry.

Overall: A good Double IPA, though a bit maltier than I like. Recommended.

Poured into a shaker pint glass. Pours a rich golden amber; we poured two glasses from the 22oz. bomber and the second glass was much cloudier from yeast at the bottom of the bottle. A half finger white head dissipated quickly leaving quite a bit of lacing. Nice aroma of citrus and slightly herbal hops, sweet malt. Flavor was sweet bready malt, orange and tropical fruit, citrus hops, but more muted in intensity than the aroma. The cloudier glass had a richer, more interesting flavor than the clear early pour. Medium bodied. A nice citrus and tropical fruit flavored IPA that was nice malt balance. The hops in the flavor did not deliver the intensity promised by the aroma, but still this IPA had a nice blend of hops and sufficient bitterness. A well made and enjoyable IIPA.

On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

Clear dark orange, nearly amber, with a thin off-white head that eventually leaves spots of lace down the glass.

Very hop-forward aroma, with the aroma exploding with grapefruit and pine aromas combining together nicely.There's a bit of sweetness but it doesn't come off as a major component of the beer's nose.

The flavor is moderately bitter, with big notes of grapefruit and orange, along with some sticky pine. The malt profile is a touch sweet, with a hint of caramel.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, though crisp and incredibly drinkable.

Better than Primordial--this stuff is awesome!

A - Nice big frothy near white head, tons of cling lace. Murky apricot body.

S - Big citrus nose, malt present as a back up. I think I detect a little pine in there too.

T - Nice big caramel center wrapped well in citrusy hops.

M - Medium body, nice balance, well carbed.

D - I like this one. Not a whale, but a solid tasty IPA.
