Hazy honey blonde with rimming, steady bone white foam that leaves lacey trailers.
Grapefruit peel, lemon curd, tropical flowers and a bit of dank on the nose.
Honey on fresh baguette and some toffee sauce with lots of tangerine, some lemon Fruit Pastilles, and pine needles.
Slightest hint of vanilla on the finish and Seville orange rind linger.
Salty, light to medium, creamy, some burn.
Columbus, Centennial and Cascade; dry hopping with Simcoe, Ahtanum, Amarillo, and Cascade.
There's a lot of promises here not being kept: Simcoe, 94 IBUs, oak... There's a surprisingly amount of sugar, which both blunt the hops and adds to the body which, with hints of wood, buries the hops that should be in a DIPA. Brings neither Ruination pure chalkiness nor big Lagunitas citrus. Nice, and handy in cans, but not what I need in a crisis.

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.
