Undated bomber. Pours hazy, golden. Massively skunky, earthy, herbal, dank DIPA. There's some fruit elements and some pine on the nose and tongue too, but these are definitely secondary.

Cloudy pale yellow colored beer. Almost no head.

Smells of pine and onion. Mildly spicy scent.

Starts out mildly sweet with a tropical fruit flavor. Taste of onion. Mild flavor and medium bitterness.

Mouthfeel is light.

Overall I can't recommend this beer.

Pours an ultra clear golden color with 1 finger head. Aroma, pineapple and peach hop aroma. Taste- bit of pineapple and eucalyptus, mint, peach. No real bitterness here. Mouthfeel is fluffy. Overall, nice tasting beer, the vegetal is a change in not terribly into. Pretty good though.

Big thanks to 2beerdogs for still another amazing Ca. hop masterpiece. From notes

Pours a cloudy dark straw topped by a nice off white dollop of foam that leaves excellent lace upon the glass.

Medium strength aroma featuring general tropical fruit notes and sweet citrus, hints of bitter herb. Alluring aroma.

Generally a sweetish take on the style with generous amounts of all the flavors in the nose in a clean and balanced presentation. Sip ends sweet but nicely bitter enough to keep from being too sweet.

Thick bodied but not overly viscous or too resiny, and in fact quite easy drinking and soft on palate, with an excellent bright clean finish.

Exc. beer, don't hesitate to get this if you see it you will like it.

Light gold in color with a quarter inch of tightly knit creamy dishwater white foam on top. I'm getting a faint floral to herbal hop note with pale wheat in the mix. After tasting it I think I would say that the hops are a blend of floral and herbal with the pale wheat factoring pretty strongly in the mix. The mouth is moderately carbonated and crisp.

Appearance is a translucent light gold with minimal head.

The smell is tart citrus, in line with other brews I've described as Five Alive. There's also honey, the kind you get from bees that hang around in an orchard.

The taste is pretty unique for an IPA. The citrus is still the main thing, with lime, pomelo, orange rinds, and a little white grapefruit. I also get a little olive oil. And a little hazelnut and almond. The combination might not seem to work, but it does.

The carbonation is nicely integrated, but there's still some prickliness.
