canned on 08/06/2012. 12 oz can into 2012 SAVOR glass.
A: a very hazed pale orange hue. head retention is great. frothy and white. lacing is thick.
S: fruity for sure. very bubblegum. a decent amount of woody notes that linger on the nose.
T: the fruit from the hops are strong but are still overshadowed by the vanilla oak notes. you can tell this thing as been in some wood. strong but yet smooth. the vanilla is stong.
M: mild carb on a seriously full body.
D: pretty serious brew. lots of oak flavor, lots of flavor. a little hot and muddy though. no need to mix fresh hops and oak imo. not my favorite from 21st.

I lived 10 years a block from this brewer, a good friend is an investor, and I love their work. But, as solid as this is, it's not as good as the DIPA from my home town.
All the same: A must try and a great place to visit.
a - Pours a clear apricot amber with 2 fingers of fluffy white head, lots carbonation, and lots of lacing.
s - Smell is too subtle! What's here is of hops pine and citrus hops, tropical fruit, malts, and a bit of alcohol.
t - Taste follows smell. Hops forward! It's puckering as it zings your palate with pine and citrus hops, resiny, sweet malts, and tropical fruits. Long, heavy, peppery, zingy finish.
m - Clean finish. Nice feel! Medium bodied DIPA w low carbonation. Much bitterness, long finish, and pretty easy to drink. A bit too strong though for me.
o - Great mouth feel. SOMA San Francisco must enjoy this great, and growing, home town brewer.
