Pours a deep amber color. Not very well balanced. Very malt forward but still a decent beer. The Nelson hops were what caught my attention, so I was disappointed when I couldn't distinguish them over the malt

Sticky amber, laced white foam. Juicy mango and melon, quite dank, floral. Chewy melon straight to bitter. Not bad.

Aside from the malt overpowering hops a bit for being a double IPA, it is overall it a pleasant beer and might serve as a good entry level beer into the double IPA style.

From tap. Smooth and sweet. But still too malty for my liking.

750 into imperial pint. A dark orange, copper with a quick fade light beige head. The aromas were of some tropicals, but mainly floral with pine undertones. The bottle spoke of crushed grapes and citrus. I did not get that. Shortly after my first sip my wife leaned in for a kiss and said "you taste like grape juice." Girl's got a stellar palate.

Taste varied only slightly from the aromas. Floral, pine hops up front (and plenty tasty mind you, not a critique) with some sweet maltiness across the palate. Finish had the advertised grapefruit. This was interesting as DIPAs go. It had the "balance" of big hop and malt, but the flavor left your tongue pretty quickly and did not linger as long as expected with the medium-plus mouth feel.. Still, a good DIPA but tough luck being from a part of the country where great DIPA's flow. Still worth a taste.

A good DIPA, which is something I don't say often. Not too high on IBU so quite tasty.

Picked up a bomber from Holiday Wine Cellar in early September for $6.99. No freshness date but refrigerated since the purchase.

Beer poured golden orange with a nice white head that is lingering.

Nose is ripe citrus.

Taste is overripe grapefruit with lemon peel and an oily hop presence that is present from start to finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and decently carbonated.

Overall this is a serviceable brew that has an OK flavor but nothing special. Nothing against the fellas from Belching Beaver (love the PB Stout) but there are many better alternatives in the San Diego market.

I was hoping this lived up to Belching Beavers Peanut Butter Milk Stout. It was an overall good Double/Imperial IPA, but it lacked the overall hop flavor that I desire. I got the tropical fruit, but it was overpowered by the malts. I got too much toffee.
