3.78/5 rDev -5%
Handsome orangey amber in the big tulip. On tap at 57 Degrees in San Diego. Not much of a head, and while carbonation is fine for a while, the sparkle goes out of this too soon. Big fruity and pitchy nose.
On the plus side, the hop flavor is deep and spicy without being excessively bitter. Flavors of melon, mango, orange peel. There is some of the grapefruit but more like pine along with the tropical fruit. I wonder if it has a dose of Mosaic?
Interesting notes of grapes, pear skins, and bitter greens. Dry finish with a bitter, mineral aftertaste. Tasty but overly alcoholic.

Consumed at the brewery tasting room, April 20th, 2014.
Clear, yellow beer: much lighter colored than expected for the ABV. Very sticky sheeting from the fine white head.
Aroma is a bit dank and earthy. Citrus rinds and pine.
Flavor starts with a touch of caramel malt before segueing into a piney, bitter finish. Not complex but well-defined.
Somewhat tingly and parching on the tongue, as is proper.
Like nearly all Rip Current beers, it is totally fine but, in the world of San Diego breweries, totally fine is not enough to stand out.

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.
