Poured from bottle into a Teku glass.

After pouring gently into the glass, the appearance is good with an inch thick head and a light amber to amber color.

Aroma is dominated by that of hops and pine - pine as you'd smell walking through the woods, also present are citrus in the form of fresh tangerine and a sweet malty wrapper all around.

The taste is pretty in-line with the aroma. The residual bitterness after every sip may be a bit strong compared to other IIPAs, but it is still quite enjoyable nonetheless.

Mouthfeel is great, medium bodied with the right amount of carbonation that supports the flourishing of its taste. Think of a carbonated fresh squeezed, filtered fruit juice.

This is a very enjoyable IIPA that I would definitely purchase again. I have not enjoyed every organic beer (or wine for that matter) that I've tried - but I must say that this one is pretty solid. What will be interesting (based on the organic nature) is to see if they can keep it consistent batch after batch. (1,009 characters)

Fruity, Piney, Herbal, Simcoe!

This organic DIPA pours a bright orangey gold color, with a touch of chill haze that eventually goes away, and an impressive creamy white head that sticks. Aroma is a bit dank, vegetal, and floral. Crisp on the palate, then creamy. Fruity, apple, citrus, and a touch of caramel. Big smack of leafy, coarse, piney hops with herbal notes, suggestions of onion, a dry aspirin edge, and an oily feel that all lingers into a bready finish. Alcohol comes to play as the beer warms. The heavy-handed focus on Simcoe hops is quite fun and impactful here, creating a unique DIPA in a market that’s currently saturated with them.

Pours into an impy pint glass a chill hazed lighter golden with a lacey half finger white head atop.Some citrusy hops and sugary sweetness in the nose,the sweetness seems pretty big.The sweetness is really not big at all on the palate,citric and bitter hops dominate with some sugary sweetness lingering in the finish,the alcohol gets bigger as I drink more.A solid DIPA from hippies out in Berkeley,not overly sweet just the right amount of sweetness. (452 characters)

Pours thick sticky head that dussapates into a beautiful lacing that lingers forever. Smell is strong and hoppy. Taste is extremly bitter, hoppy, piny, very strong flavors with no sweetness to be a distraction. Very smooth despite the bitterness. Overall a very good dipa one of the best I've had. (297 characters)
