4.04/5 rDev +1.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Appearance: golden orange with white 1 inch head and very cloudy
Aroma: citrus and pine, biscuit pale malt aroma, not a ton of aroma though
Taste: definite alcohol bite but an interesting pineapple taste that is very different from other citrusy beers. Biscuit notes provide backbone. A very fresh and clean taste that has a little oaky green-ness to it.
Mouthfeel: biting, full bodied, medium-high carbonation, bracing
Overall; other than the cloudy appearance and low aroma notes, this is a great DIPA. Interesting pineapple notes play off an oaky green-fresh flavor. Biscuit malt notes provide the backbone.
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.
