Overpriced crap. Would rather drink a Four Loko and eat a can of Dole mixed fruit. Fig only has one good beer and this isn't it.

Drinking one at Marriott in Paso Robles, CA while driving down coast on vacation. Great Amber color. Aroma is light side. Taste is surprisingly mellow for a 9.2% ABV. Drinks smooth and not overly bitter or heavy. This is beer I will definitely drink again.

Decent head. Lacing is abundant, clings heavily on all sides. A pretty gold, surprisingly opaque.

I smell grassy hops? Not sure. A decent amount in the nose though, could use more.

Oh man. This is a hop bomb. Lots of bitterness but also a lot of flavor. Tastes a bit like exotic fruits, and citrus too. Pineapple, guava, passion fruit, and oh so bitter. Little discernable alcohol. Honey-sweet malt.

Very very smooth, it's crisp and even refreshing. Can pound this one easy. A masterful 9% er in my opinion, dangerous.

A nice amber color but with little head and lacing. Smell of guava and pineapple. The taste is sweet and syrupy upfront with flavors of guava, apple and peach. The malts taste of honey. Overall, a very enjoyable tropical take on DIPA.

Poured well. Good head but didn't retain as well as I thought it would. Aroma fruity, hoppy, piney. Taste. Orange, citrusy, grapefruit with a some bitterness at the end. Feel. Smooth covers the whole mouth. Overall. An amazing IIPA growing up in that area am proud to say they killed it.
