Having seen the San Diego guys rave about Rip Current for months, a visit was mandatory. Plus points for having a kick-ass pizza food truck outside…I’ve already forgotten the name. At the tap room, four ounce sampler in the glass.

The pour is a darker yellow, low carbonation, looks like nothing special. Then I bring the glass towards my ugly face & behold! I smell the uncut weeds on the path to Heaven’s Gate. Bitterness foreshadowed, fruitiness, sharp mango. Oh god. Four ounces might be gone before I finish this sentence.

Lupulin Lust to rule them, and in the darkness, kick the asses of the rest of the San Diego IPAs. This is what I’m talkin’ about! Citrus & pine on speed bum rush the senses, followed by a never-cresting waves of bitterness. Mango? Passion fruit? Tropical stuff arrives mid-palate, & instead of stinging the bitterness, it’s perfectly complementary. Taste is just like I love my porn: thick & juicy. I almost said dripping, but strike that. Four ounces? Fuck me. Now I can’t even trying anything else on the lovely-looking menu. Time for a full pour.

This one has that Cowell-style X-factor: it’s simply marvelous. I wonder what the local policy is for one sleeping, Lust-drunk, in one’s car. Best not to find out, I suppose. But it’s tempting. Really tempting. (1,319 characters)

Clear dark orange and golden with a creamy near-white head. Leaves irregular lines and spots of stick on the glass. Very pretty.

Floral hops and pine character lead the way, with only mild citrus complementing. A bit of biscuit, but this is definitely hop-forward. Not quite as expressive as I've found in other Rip Current hoppy beers.

Pine and floral hop notes make up the largest flavor characteristics along with bold bitterness, but the flavors are crisp and this is an exceptionally drinkable beer. A bit of citrus as well, though I would suggest more lemon than orange character.

Medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation. Very appropriate.

Bitter but very drinkable. Tasty DIPA I would happily order again. (773 characters)
