On tap at Speakeasy's 16th Anniversary Party:

Pours a hazy bright yellow with slight orange edges. Creamy off white head. Aroma is all hops. The malt backbone is barely noticeable which was clearly the intention. Huge notes of pineapple, mango, passion fruit, peaches, and melon. So much citrus hop focus in the aroma. Taste follows the nose extremely well. Not overly sweet with exceptionally balanced flavors from all the different hops in this beer. One of the smoothest and creamiest 10% IPAs I've had, amazing how well the alcohol was covered up. Dangerously easy to drink! Hop profile is Simcoe, Amarillo, Citra, Columbus, Apollo, and Mosaic. An excellent TIPA, hopefully this is rebrewed and maybe even added to Speakeasy's lineup.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: golden beer with frothy cap; persistent filmy cap and some sparse lacing

S: bright grapefruit and lemon pith and spray - zesty on the nose - some floral notes

T: danker hop bitterness on the tongue than the nose - shiny pine notes humming through the citric flowers; light and just mildly sweet malts, pale and clean

M: toward the lighter-feel end of the DIPA spectrum; another relatively lean and tight IIPA, subtle bitterness, mild finish

O: drinkable DIPA from San Fran, lean and crisp, carrying a well-hidden abv - light and lemony - definitely worth the buy, even if only for the one time.
