Most excedingly excellent IPA! Poured at a good temperature with a large, cream colored, foamy, head that settled after a bit, and good lacing. Color is a clear medium amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is more pine resin than citrus, fresh, caramel malt, and alluring. Flavor's like nose, of a strength like a traditional American IPA, good balance between main characteristics, fairly dry. Body/carbonation are perfect for style. Finish is predominantly hop bitter followed by malt, long, and very drinkable. Very well done.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams "Perfect Pint" glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep copper golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Solid three fingers of white head with good retention. Leaves a good amount of creamy lacing around the glass.

Smell: A bright and crisp hop forward aroma with some nice hints of fruit and grass. Citrus hop esters up front with hints of pulpy orange peel, grapefruit, mango, and lemon. Earthy and herbal hops aroma with hints of grass and a little pine resin. Malts in background with hints of bready biscuit, grains, caramel, and yeast. A little hint of candy like sugar. A solid hoppy aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a crisp and juicy taste of citrus and grassy hops with some grainy malt. Juicy taste of citrus upfront with notes of orange pulp, grapefruit, mango, and lemon zest. Earthy and herbal hop taste with notes of grass and pine spice. Solid bready background with notes of grains, biscuit, caramel, and yeast along with a slight hint of candy sugar. A pretty good West Coast taste.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp, juicy, and pretty smooth and drying.

Overall: A pretty solid West Coast style IPA. A little lighter on the body but still good hop flavor.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours hazed copper with a head that becomes wispy. Some lacing sticks.

The smell is resiny and citric - orange, lemon/lime, grapefruit. Plenty hoppy with carmelized malt backing it up.

The taste is of bitter hops (the chinook especially stands out)- pine and tobacco with citric fruits that soon becomes balanced by a sweet malt backing. Caramel and toffee from the malt stands out but allows the hops to be forward. Bitter, backed by sweet turning to a bitter bite in the finish. Alcohol is well-integrated.

A nice hoppy, but balanced, tasty IPA!

I've never been a big fan of the other Left Coast Ipa's, but this new addition to the L.C. line is really enjoyable and easy to drink. Perfect for the person who enjoys a clean, piney, fruit IPA with a low malt content.

No smoke, no caramel, no butterscotch, just pine needle goodness, high hops and low aftertaste. This beer isn't really complicated, and I say that in a good way.

Appearance: (4.0)

- Pours a rather clear straw yellow to very light copper color. Foamy fingers of white fluffy head settle quickly to a thin pillow with foamy lace about the glass. Certainly a solid looking IPA.

Smell: (4.0)

- Wonderful grassy, citrus, and fruity hops with a wonderful pine resin aroma. A subtle and yet smooth smelling bready malt with light sweetness. Just what I like. Little bit of a grainy caramel backbone.

Taste: (4.0)

- Bready and biscuit-like malt with just a touch of caramel and light esters with a great fruity and grassy hop. Certainly some pine and earthy hops going on, and all very well balanced without being overly big on caramel malt.

Mouth Feel: (4.5)

- Great chewy attributes with a nice drying touch from the big bitterness. It's a medium bodied brew with almost the perfect consistency and carbonation. Certainly a winner.

Overall: (4.0)

- This IPA fits my taste almost to the "T". It's not one of those big grainy caramel bombs, but yet a well balanced, bready west-coast style IPA's that I love. The bitterness is high, and has just the right aroma hops to compliment. Go get it, you will not be disappointed.

Had on tap at Small Bar in San Diego. It was the cask ale. Pours a hazed golden orange color with a stubborn, but short white head. Pungent grapefruit bouquet. The moutfheel is a little flat and unrewarding. There are grapefruit esters in the flavor, but not to the extent one would expect from the bouquet. Finishes a little juicy and with more grapefruit esters. Not too bad.

Popping the cap releases an herbal nose blended with light nutty grain. Pours hazy gold with a quickly dissipating 1” white foam cap that is easily roused and leaves delicate lace. Up front nuts to biscuit, light fruit that lead to a biscuit, hoppy lingering aftertaste. Above average carbonation, medium body, dries on the finish.
