  • 9.00/10 have another
  • A: 9.0 | T: 9.0 | L: 9.0 | M: 9.0 | O: 9.0
  • Color: Medium Amber
  • A: Orange gold, with a very slight haze. Soft off-white foam of medium low retention.

    S: Fresh citrus and tropical fruits. The citrus is a mix of grapefruit and tangerine. Some light breadiness. Appealing aroma starts my interest.

    T: A nice mix of the fruits and a mild caramel sweetness. A decently full mouthfeel, but stops at the right level. Nothing out of balance. The hoppy dryness is late and comes mostly as a grapefruity tartness. Big personality for a 8% abv beer.

    : Definitely a West Coast inspired DIPA. But necessarily a clone by any means. Seems most like an Alpine, but there's the unique SOB twist in flavor. Solemn brews most of the time have a signature aroma/flavor note, and it's here. This brew will run with the big dogs. Glad this brewery is in my hood.
