Aroma: Light sweet pear-like aroma up front. Swirling the glass lends to flower and orange blossom accents. Slightly woody background aroma. Fermentation character is clean.
Appearance: Murky amber pour with a thick batter-like off white cap.
Flavor: Juicy citrus hops up front. Powdery resin-like hop flavors. Very pithy and orange/lemon zest-like. Candy orange sweetness is quickly beaten down by the pithy bitterness. Balance is firmly bitter. Finish is clean and dry.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, medium-high carbonation. Slight warmth on the back of the palate. Slight hop derived astringency.
Overall impression: Dangerously drinkable. Glad the oak is muted and almost non-existent. Nicely done!
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.
