3.31/5 rDev -4.1%
Nice looking amber orange color in the New Belgium snifter. The foam is quite admirable as well. Decent sudsy mouthfeel. This seems like another well-made brew from Black Diamond.
Bitter twang from the start. A touch of melon, then the pine, and then it's just bitter. Brewer says this has Simcoe, Centennial, and Columbus hops. Some dark toasty flavors with a sharp sensation, but a modest malty richness. Tart finish with a dark, bitter and winey grape-skin taste.
While this has some virtues, it suffers from the usual excess of hops without as much pleasure as you might hope for. The aftertaste is like grapefruit rind on the lips. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Barons Marketplace on Point Loma Blvd.

3.04/5 rDev -11.9%
A - Cloudy orange. 1mm of head which quickly dissolves and not too much lacing.
S - Strong lemon/lime and apple aroma. Smells a bit cidery
T - Apple cider again. Definitely a west coast IPA in style with citrus hops but the "big malt backbone" lends a cloying sweetness that reminds me of all the off home brews I've made
M - Medium/light body and moderate carbonation
0 - The malts kill it for me. The sweetness they impart overpower the hops. This beer is definitely not lacking in flavor, it's just a flavor I don't personally enjoy.

Pours a clear copper color with a tight, pillowy white head that leaves little bits of lacing.
Smells of citrus peel and herbal hops.
Tastes of the solid hops upfront layered over a decent malt base. Hops lead off with herbal notes rushing forward that quickly turn to vegetable notes. Honestly, it detracts significantly. Citrus notes make their through the shuffle and blend in with some malt sweetness. The malts offer up caramel and a bit of toffee.
Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth amount of carbonation.
Overall, this feels like a beer that could use some tweaking to become something significantly better.
