On tap at Out Of The Park in Animalheim, CA.

First things first and Raul sat his slender 6'3" 145 pound frame down with a H-24. Appearance was bright and sunny like a Twinkie on acid - I mean, this cold sun of a gun was vibrant. Scent was aite like a newborn grapefruit, while the taste was pretty juicy, but a bit astringent like my baby mama while using a bottle of windex (which is rare, my children).

Fairly pleasant, but a bit harsh overall. If you're going to play with a freak, there is the possibility that it is going to bite.

Peace!

Picked one up on the way home with a pizza.

Perfect match for a Friday dinner. Smooth and flavorful, medium intensity DIPA. Enough hoppy bitterness to stand up to the pepperoni, but not too much. The hop combination is what sold me 3Cs (Centennial, Citra, Columbus) with Simco!!

A bit of Orange Blossom adds a slight citrus note.

Cloudy apricot color, 1 soapy finger of bone white head,decent retention & lacing.

Aroma is an even balanced mixture of candied tropical fruit and malt.

Taste is pretty much what you expect from the aroma with candied grapefruit slices, and malt.

Mouthfeel is medium and slightly grainy,not overly dry in the finish,decent drinkability.

If your tastes run towards an even blend of hops and malt, this will be a winner for you. If you prefer a hop forward IIPA with the malt lying low, this won't send you.

A - Pours a glowing yellow with a hint of gold, nice slow steady carbonation, big off white 2 finger head with great lacing and retention.

S - Tons of light citrusy notes, orange, grapefruit, lemon, resinous rinds, malty.

T - Initially decently bitter with tons of the aforementioned citrus flavors and resin. Nice sweet malts temper the citrusy bitterness.

M - Really great malty body (medium bodied), decently carbonated and decently thick - perfect combination IMO. Quite drinkable for what it is.

O - Overall a wonderfully balanced resinous citrusy sweet malty dipa!
