Has a citrus scent. Medium malt taste with a slight boozy taste. Doesn't taste hoppy enough. More bitter than hoppy. This sort of tastes like stone ipa

On tap at Ironfire's tasting room. Wasn't super impressed. The bitterness was there but the hop flavor wasn't as desirable as I expected. Try their Devil Within DIPA, much better.

Picked up a bomber from Holiday Wine Cellars in early September for $8.49.

Beer poured a fine clear golden with a nice white head that is hanging around pretty well.

Nose is a nice blast of floral hops.

Taste is pine and citrus that melds well with a clean malt bill.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and nicely carbonated.

Overall this is a very nice brew that is worthy of a shot if you come across it.

After enjoying the 51/50 I had to try this one and was not disappointed!! This was an excellent DIPA, better than many others I've tried! The hop bite was just right (for me anyway), and a nice citrus aftertaste with only a hint of alcohol, nicely hiding the 9% abv. This bad boy puts Temecula firmly on the SoCal brewing scene map!!

A - poured crystal clear out of a bomber. Very thin white head that did stick to the glass. The color is a very, very light gold.

S - Exactly what I want to smell in DIPA, lots and lots of hops. Orange zest and a little pine.

T - Very dry up front. Not much bite for a DIPA, very smooth. Hops dominate the flavor, but there is definitely more malts in there than I was expecting.

M - Very dry with lots of carbonation. Medium bodied. Doesn't hang on your tongue like a lot of hoppy brews.

O - Very drinkable but not really my cup of tea. Might be a good DIPA for someone not really into hoppy beers. I prefer mine to have a little more hop bite.
