22oz bomber, no date. After just having an islander IPA I am not seeing a big difference. Small veriations in nose and malt. Both have that rust finish.

From 32GP. In Teku glass. After dinner. BBF this month. Still pretty good. To repeat fresher. Tropical fruits with a remarkably bitter dry finish. Very resinous

Looks Awesome. Two tone orange body with a lighter, clearer bottom and a solid cream head atop the darker haze. Nose is strong with hops and booze. I'm smelling a hop bomb.

Yeah, malt has left the building, folks. Heavy citrus rind and pine resin and think, syrupy booooooze. Thick mouthfeel has its work cut out for it but does admirably. This goes down smoother than my description would indicate. In quantities these would destroy but I enjoyed drinking this one.

THis was the beer that kept on giving.
It looked great in the glass (orangish, with a tight thick white foam head).
The smell of the 4 types of hops was there on the nose.
The flavor was not as bitter, and a fair bit sweeter than I expected. Yet it didn't lose the hoppy flavors from the boil.
A wonderful balancing act.
It drank down too quickly, is my only "complaint". Yum!

A darker and heartier yellow appearance. Aroma hit some mango and grapefruit notes, then a little bit of pineapple.

Taste was one with alcohol up front, finally began to hit that chill tip and then a wave of bitterness keeps the forcible entry thing going with the mouth.

Its nice you don't have to get these in a bomber anymore. With so many great ipas in San Diego, this one just doesn't have a place to be a recurring character in my play. But its good.
