look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

on tap @ San Diego Brewing Company

A- dark auburn and straw with a 1 finger, frothy white head, great retent, thin bubbly lace, very pretty brew

S- citrus, bit soapy, strong citrus rind, fresh, malty butterscotch

T- spicy with some alcoholic present at finish, some butterscotch throughout, nice mellow balance in middle with the hops intensifying toward the finish, citrus, some tartness and heat

M- medium body, sticky finish, slight heat in after, starts smooth and gets coarse toward end

D- warms well, awesome 2IPA, another great example of the west coast and their hop magic

Had on tap at the Pizza Plant on Transit last night,poured into a small snifter style glass a full rich copper color with a slight chill haze a small but well formed head atop.A mix of juicy sweet malt and intense piney hop the sweetness is dark fruit and caramel there is a bit of a alcohol zing in the nose a s well,the flavors are alot like the aromas rich and sweet up front with that dark fruit and caramel sweet base about midway an intense resiny pine hop character comes thru and lingers for quite awhile.Its a bit heavy even after just a few swallows but the flavors a full and take no prisoners,a nice new DIPA to enjoy out there.
