Really nice beer. Surprisingly I like this one better than Simtra, their triple IPA. Damn good stuff.

Is it crazy if I start right off by saying this was one of the best DIPAs I've ever had?

On tap at Cesars on Piedmont in central Oakland

Bright, huge hoppiness, but that's a given. We're in CA, after all. This beer has what I will call a wonderful individual take on "west coast balance". Because "balance", in other parts of the country, is code for "hops under control". Here, we have a beer that hasn't turned down the hops, but has turned up the malty, caramel base to even out the palate, in a way that - for me - works almost to perfection.

If you're a midwest guy who thinks the west coast thing is "overrated" (that's a great beer, too), then you might not be as impressed. But if you like your IPAs big and loud - and sweet - then this might be the beer for you.
