4.72/5 rDev +1.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured into pint glass from tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad 09-30-07.
One of my favorite double IPAs first tried here back in 2004.
Poured copper orange color with nice sticky head with scents of the herbal pine of Norcal with hints of citrus. Taste more grapefruit pine flavor with nice balance between very bitter hoppiness and sweet maltiness. That where this beer shines the most. Mouth feel nice smooth feel that helps with the flavor to mask the 8% alcohol content. This helps make it very drinkable but becareful because this one will pack a nice punch.
Serving type: on-tap
