A: Pours a lightly hazy golden apricot to honey orange in color with light to moderate amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and hints of peach highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall sudsy foamy beige head that reduces to small patch of thick film surrounded by a large patch of thin film covering the majority of the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of floral, citrus/grapefruit pith, and pine hops over light aromas of caramel malt sweetness.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of grainy and caramel malts with a light to moderate amount of sweetness. That is followed by light flavors of floral, citrus/grapefruit pith, and pine hops which contribute a light amount of bitterness that fades moderately quickly.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with slightly more than moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness.

O: This is a very light, very easy to drink IPA and is not as bold or in your face as some of the others in the style - the flavors and aromas are slightly more subtle.I found this one to be an easy drinker that pairs well with just about any type of food (in my case pork chops and spinach).

Dubbed as a "West Coast-style" IPA, its dry malt backbone allows for full hop control and sharp bitterness for effortless taste and texture- for the hop-heads at least.

Pouring a bright, near-brilliant golden-peach color, the beer swirls into a mildly hazed body with a cottony-white head that floats above with arid honeycomb structure. Long on retention and clinging with lace, rings form at each drink.

Poignant hop aromas dominate the nose- grapefruit and orange lead the way with their floral oils. Its malty undertow gives just enough light caramel, honey and graham cracker character to give the citrus a plump, ripe and vibrant impression. A developing pine note rises just before the taste.

Its light graham cracker character is dry and supple of sweetness- caramel and honeysuckle is light and short as the middle palate of hops come quickly. Sharp citrus tones ensue with the flavor of grapefruit in all its pulp, peel and pithiness along with the zesty taste of freshly zested oranges. Trailing bitterness is lightly grassy but more so of pine resins that extend well past the finish.

Medium-light at first, the beer's creamy sweetness quickly evaporates and trends dry, arid and lightly toasted late. Its drying hop resins assist the warmth of alcohol for an effortless finish that comes quickly and with light hop-derived astringency and smooth bittering.

Beautiful in its recipe formulation and in brewer execution, for a West Coast type of IPA, I want to see even more exacerbated hop bitterness and further receding of malt sweetness.

fresh 22oz bottle into a teku glass.

pours an orangish color with a nice head. Smell is intriguing and honestly a bit off...not really hoppy at all...taste holds true and this is more like a hopped up pale than an IPA.. flavor itself isnt bad a tad fruity but this is marketed wrong. not enough hops to be called an IPA and the label description is very off. light bodied almost...mild carbonation.

overall not an IPA by any stretch...
