On tap at Valiant Brewing Company in Orange, CA.

Pours a hazy gold with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and alcohol. Taste is much the same with an alcohol kick on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty but strong.

On-tap at the source in a 14 ounce goblet. On to the beer:

This triple dry-hopped Double IPA is goldenrod colored and topped with a centimeter of creamy head before it falls into a decent lace that lashes about the glass. Being triple dry-hopped beer, I had a feeling this would smell like the equivalent of crack rock, and that potential is realized. There's a lot of vibrant fruits noted in the aroma, including peach, passionfruit, mango, fresh pine, and pineapple.

Much of the aroma transfers into the flavor of the beer. Tastes very nice, though I think the carbonation is slightly low. That said, the pineapple flavor takes on the character of a liqueur, sweet and syrupy, along with splashes of passionfruit, mango, a mélange of tropical juices. A bit of the alcohol is felt, expected given how strong it stands. With all this on the table, it comes across almost as much of a hop liqueur than a beer.

Very good IPA as it stands, right there in the "battle of CA-57" with Knuckle Sandwich, Humulus Lager, and Royalty for the hoppiest beer produced in the region. With a little more carbonation, I think this beer could cause an earthquake in the land of Double IPA's.
