3.13/5 rDev -22.7%
Glass: Half pint glass
From: URGE American Gastropub
in Rancho Bernardo (San Diego, Calif.)
Poured a red caramel color with a finger (when I got it) of off-white head that lasted for awhile. Good looking circular lacing on the sides. Nice layer of on the top as it went down.
Smelled soap, butter and bitter piny hops.
Tasted bitter piny hops, grapefruit, weak floral hops and soap with a huge alcohol bite.
Medium body. Thin-to-oily texture. Lively (above average) carbonation. Bitter finish.
Just wasn’t a fan of his beer. Lots of alcohol in the taste, but the flavor just didn’t match up.

4.33/5 rDev +6.9%
12 ounce snifter in draft at Churchkey. Beer is amber and clear a little orange with a thin white head of small bubbles, lots of lacing, moderate to low carbonation. Moderate retention. Looks good.
Aroma is earthy, piny, sweet. Smells good.
Beer is medium in body, malt presence but not malty. Very bitter in the finish all from hops. Clean, no aftertaste. Very enjoyable. A nice CTZ hoppiness in the midpalate and good connectivity. This is exactly what I wanted today. A big, bitter, aggressive, not fruity west coast DIPA. And I got it in this beer. I would have this again for sure.
