look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Pours a slightly hazy gold with a 2 finger head and good lacing down the glass.
Smells of grapefruit and citrus peel.
Very malty throughout. Good citrusy taste throughout the palate to back up the caramel backbone. Finishes with a good lingering pine/citrus hop presence. Very well balanced, not a hop bomb as I was expecting.
Mouthfeel and carbonation are both medium.
Solid beer. Would definitely try again given the chance although nothing about it stands out.

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.
