According to the server, this one is made with Columbus hops. Big, tangy, fruity. It's such a big mouthful of flavor. Warm and rich. A little hot with alcohol. Lots of flowery notes with a pineapple and grilled mango taste. Slightly sweet but the sugar doesn't stand out. It's well balanced and quite drinkable. As with all the KS beers I've tasted, the acidic side is subdued as the malt fills in the big mouthful.

This is really one of the better DIPAs I've had this year-- it's on the conservative side but it still has huge hops, powerful flavors, and deep tangy hop aromatics. On tap at the Karl Strauss in downtown San Diego. This was the Tank Tap, whatever that means.
