12oz can. Pours a semi translucent amber color with a big, creamy head. Very little lacing. Aromas of citrus hops, oak, vanilla and some pine. Taste is some of the oaky and vanilla flavors with some nice bitterness. Not a lot of citrus but more pine in the flavor. Resiny pine at the end. Damn drinkable for having an ABV of almost 10, but you do get the right amount of alcohol flavor. Creamy mouthfeel. I love the idea of an Oak Aged Imperial IPA in a can. Glad I picked this one up. Overall, a solid choice. Worth buying often.

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.
