growler fill, poured into my trusty mug.
A- Deep gold with hints of orange. Fluffy off-white head that dissipates at an average rate. OK lacing down the glass.
S- Heavy on the malt for a DIPA, caramel based mostly. Grapefruit based hops are also there with a hint of what seems like peach. The hops are also slightly herbal and minty. I could sit and smell this over and over. Really complex.
T- Yummy. The malt is very, very heavy, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Caramel malts shine through and seem to almost overpower, but the grapefruit/peach/herbal hops come on at the end and give a pleasant bitter finish.
M- Rich, medium carbonation. Could be a bit slicker, but finishes nice and dry, but not overly so.
O- I really enjoy supporting my local nano brewery, especially when they brew some seriously good beer. Much better than some DIPA's I've had from well known craft brewers. Well done guys.

Thanks to Chris for sharing this one at Ritual Brewing Company in Redlands, CA.
Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Small chunks of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with 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 mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a tasty citrus zest hop presence in the flavor.

Aroma of hops, fruit, yeast, and slight alcohol. Poured amber in color with a large, creamy, dense, off-white head that lasted throughout. Cloudy. Very sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout. Excellent lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet and medium to heavily bitter. Tastes of hops, fruit, and some malt. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Hop and fruit finish. 9%ABV is completely hidden throughout.
