Poured from 12 oz. can into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Bright and glowing golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid two finger white head fades into a thin layer. Lots of lacing around the glass.
Smell: Bright burst of citrus hops with grapefruit, orange, mango, lemon, and tangerine. Hints of bready malts and honey. A very subtle hint of oak. Bright and fruity.
Taste: Burst of citrus fruits including orange, mango, grapefruit, tangerine, and lemon. Decent bready malt backs things up. Hints of vanilla, oak, toffee, and honey. Orange flavor has a marmalade like character.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Pretty smooth and creamy for a DIPA. Alcohol heat is hidden very well.
Overall: A very solid version of a double IPA. Good mix of citrus flavors and a solid malt backbone making for a pretty smooth and tasty DIPA.
Serving type: can

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.
