On tap at Newhall Refinery in Newhall, CA.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, earth, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and floral flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop and earthy 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 good beer with a nice mixture of citrus, floral, and earthy hop qualities.

Pours into an impy nonic a dull chill hazed burnt orange with a foamy half finger white head atop.Grilled tropical fruits with all their sugars coming out in the nose,alot of good fruity sweetness with only mild bitterness,caramel toffee and mild sweet alcohol round out the nose.More tropical fruit sweetness on the palate with light herbalness as well from the hops,a hefty sweet caramel malt base is there as well making for a sweeter palate,the alcohol becomes more prevelant as it warms.A big juicy DIPA,the NZ hops bring alot of tropical flavors with them.Solid.
