Has a bright orange look and a strong citrus smell. Upon tasting, it becomes a bit syrupy, but not sticky. It's a solid DIPA from a great local brewery.

Bottling date of 01/25/16

Appearance - Pours slightly hazy and golden orange in color with an off-white, finger width head. Sub-par retention, resulting in a thin, broken layer of surface suds. Lacing consists of broken rings and a few spots here and there.

Smell - Simply wonderful aroma. Fresh citrus notes of orange, with lesser grapefruit and pineapple. Distant pine.

Taste - Flavor flips the script from the nose. Mostly pine with lesser notes of sweet orange, grapefruit and a touch of pineapple. Faint, wavering mango note. Malt backbone is mostly generic white bread with a hint of toast. Finishes with more pine and moderate pith bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Full-bodied with low, tingly carbonation. Slightly syrupy, with a semi-dry finish.

Overall - This is a solid all-around DIPA. The aroma got me excited, but the pine-forward flavor was a bit out of my wheelhouse. Maybe it's psychosomatic, but anything with this much pine tends to aggravate my sinuses. I can feel the pressure build behind my eyes. I digress. Despite my personal issues, this is a hell of a beer.

It is good. It looks a little bit more dank than it smells and tastes. Good Imperial IPA, mouthfeel good, not a lot of superhops which is what I like, but overall a descent IIPA. Had from Toronado, SF, CA. I saw Dave putting the sign up for it last Saturday. I tried it on Monday.

Got this as an extra in a trade with dmsanchez. Nice citrus nose, with a light malty backbone. A tasty double IPA that drinks like it is much lower in alcohol than 9.5%. A cool treat from the west coast.
