A San Diego DIPA? Such a rare beast here....

A: Pours a slightly hazy orange. Finger of creamsickle head. Moderate carbonation. Head retention is moderate/minimal, with moderate lacing.

S: Immediately smacks of tangerine hops. Some definite dankness as well. Lots of fruit juice coming from this one. Reminds me of 5-Alive. Malt is in there, but it's mostly lost to all the citric juiciness.

T: Juiciness in the taste, as well. Big hits of grainy malt up front, Mid palate is a smacking of citrus vs. malt. The caramel edges of the malt mingle with the orange dominated citrus to produce an almost creamsicle type flavor. Follows with a spicy tropical aspect, but the orange flavors immediately reassert. Finishes with a distnictly mandarin flavor. No completely dry, this one has some residual sweetness.

M: Medium bodied. Very tightly packed bubbles. Not quite pillowy, though. Prickle of carbonation on the finish.

O: Again, with the mandarin orange. This one is tasty, but it lacks complexity and bitterness. Enjoyable, but would probably not purchase again at 8 bucks a bomber.
