Had this on tap at Zimmzys in Belmont Shore. It pours a beautiful sunset orange with a dense one inch cap of bright white foam that sticks to my glass as I get into this. The nose on this brew is absolutely amazing, it reeks of Citra and Simcoa hops, dense rich citrus fruits, tropical fruits, some nice mineral notes to balance things out, insanely delicious nose. The flavor profile steps right in, the buds are infused with mango,tangerine, nectarine, and lemon and lime pulp.A bit of sweet apricot jam infused with biscuit notes and sea salt balance it all out in a gorgeous mouth full of West Coast IPA 101. The mouth is fresh, a bit resinous, which it should be with all the drippings from the pine, but it leaves dry and requires another quaff immediately.
What a great find.The fact they are 35 minutes away is better, I plan on tasting their lineup in its entirety soon. If you love KRBC Citra, Alpine Nelson, or are just a fan of tropical/citrus forward West Coast IPA/DIPA then this is right up your alley. Great stuff !

Thanks to drewone for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a slightly murky honey orange with a beige head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, honey, and citrus zest. Taste is the same with a medium amount of bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good DIPA with some nice aromas and flavors.
