2.78/5  rDev -31.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

On draft at Grape and Grain in San Mateo.

12oz pour into tulip - Looks beautiful. Cloudy golden body, with short off white head. Awesome lacing.

Aromas are somewhat spicy and grainy. Peppercorn. Apricot. Surprisingly low hop quality, but what's there is ragweed and grassy.

Oh, dear God. Flavor is bad. Bile comes to mind, as it's bitter and dull at the same time. Sick/old hop quality. Apricot and some level of peach.

Mouthfeel is somewhat thick with low carbonation - ok for the style and ABV, but the cloying bad flavor hangs out too long and is not cleansed.

This beer is good for a buzz and bad breath. Bummed.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Oh boy! Been waiting on this one to hit a bottle for months.

A: Very different than when I had it on tap. Transparent light orange. Finger of khaki head. Very creamy. Moderate to minimal carbonation, with tiny bubbles rising to the surface. Retention is surprisingly good for 9.2%. Lacing is excellent, leaving soapy rings on the glass.

S: Dank and fruity. Reminds me of Sucks in a lot of very pleasing ways. Tropical fruits, pot, a hint of spruce needle. Smells surprisingly clean. The malts don't add a layer of sweetness that tends to "round out" really fruity IIPA's. Smells wonderful.

T: Big and dank up front. Again with the tropical melange. This carries through the mid palate, where the malt begins to pick up a bit. However, the malt never quite comes around to fully accentuate the fruity hoppiness. Surprisingly lacking in bitterness. Finishes with that unique spicy mango and a distinct soapiness. Slight underlying of pine bitterness here. Finishes floral, with hints of grapefruit zest and more of the soapiness.

M: Light. Incredibly light for being 9.2%. There is malt weight there, but it's nowhere near what you would expect. The entirety of the weight in this beer is in the middle. The end is just an absolute laser beam of leanness. The beginning is light and pillowy.

O: Awesome. Easily the best I've had from this brewery. The lack of aggressive bitterness is a welcome touch. This beer is on par with Firestone Walker in terms of quality. Can't wait to see what's next for this up and coming brewery.
