Pours a clear orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of citrus fruit, citrus zest, honey, and alcohol. Taste is of citrus zest, herbal hops, and malt on the finish. There is a medium hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with some nice aromas and flavors.

This poured out as a orange color with a white head on top. Very nice thin retention and sticky lacing. The smell of the beer is a bit on the dank side, some floral hops and citrus in there as well. The taste of the beer is slightly sweet up front, with a piney lemon flavor. The malts are a bit sweet. The mouthfeel is decent, good medium body and carbonation. Overall it's a pretty good brew.

Hoppy-sweet on the palate, Figueroa Mountain's big-boy IPA boasts a hearty malt body and a wrap of hoppy goodness to soak it all in.

It starts out honey-amber, slightly hazed and with a medium frothy cap to lead the charge. Though its crown soon colapses back into the glass, it manages to lace with a broken ring here and there.

And its honey appearances lean into aroma and taste as well. Its sweet caramelly upstart reigns in hop elements of citrus, tropical fruit, and tea-like herbs to add depth of flavor and aromas midway through the session. But a close of both sharp and citrusy bitterness fuses with more stemmy and broad bitterness making me think the beer is of both American and English origins.

Medium-full on the palate, the beer remains that way through much of its taste- not allowing much dryness or crispness to occur in its finish. Warm and semi-dry, it's a wonderful ale that balances a bit too much toward the malt for even an Imperiao IPA for me.

A genuinely orange color in the globe glass. Enough foam and plenty of suds on the palate.

Taste is the classic big hop citrus rind mouthful. Rather sharp and acideic on the tongue. Orange peel aroma and grapefruit pith bitterness. Lots of malt, which just seems to jack up the alcohol content while the hop thugs horse around. I wish hops would get expensive again.

The slightly sweet maltiness makes a brief appearance. I can't find anything interesting to say about this beer. It's sort of watery for a DIPA, which is not a bad thing, and it does have a nice foamy mouthfeel. But my lips hurt. Can I go now?

22 oz bottle bought at Best Damn in San Diego.

The Figueroa Mountain mambo line continues with this Double IPA. There's no freshness date, but I don't see any sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Coming from the 22 ounce format, on to the beer:

Brilliant copper colored beer, topped by a low head whcih settles around the glass. Dots of lace decorate the tulip. The nse is a fruity delight. In particular are the tropical fruit, which include notes of pineapple, grapefruit, and mango. Love it!

Once again, this beer goes with the fruit. There's still plenty of mango and pineapple left over from the aroma that appears in the taste. The bitterness is resiny. There's a kick of passionfruit as well, and a base of toasted malts. It's medium bodied, and it's paired with a lower than average carbonation, and an 8% ABV that is hidden well.

Just a tasty beer; one more out of Figueroa Mountain. While I do recommend trying this beer, be aware that it goes for $9 a bomber.

According to the bottle this is 8% ABV and 82 IBUs.

Deeply amber colored beer edging towards the color brown with a small off-white colored head. This is a hue I like to call bronze.

Smell is strong C type hops. Scents of pine and orange with a little grapefruit. Strong honey malt scent. Little bit of lemon and eucalyptus to this. Faint cedar aroma.

Starts out sweet with a woody flavor and a savory sensation on the tongue. Moderate amount of bitterness. Little bit of citrus but this is just plain woody tasting, like sucking on a teabag.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall I feel like I wasted my money on this one. Not much here but a teabag flavored ale. I suggest you skip this one.
