Poured 12oz. can into a brandy snifter glass
A: Golden straw colored beer with a creamy white head that thins out quite nicely leaving some light head retention in the brandy snifter glass.
S: Floral hops, citrus, pineapple, sweet malt, oak and a hint of the high alcohol backbone.
T: Hop forward grapefruit, pineapple, orange and a hint of pine flavor. There is a sweet earthy floral finish which has a sweet malty backbone on board. Nice complex set of flavors.
M: Sticky light to moderate carbonation. High resin like syrupy feel to this beer. Almost too sweet but the hop characteristics save this beer from being too sweet.
O: Overall a very nice complex high test IPA with a heavy dose of hops. Let this one warm up in your brandy snifter glass and sip it for maximum enjoyment. Great beer!

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.
