Bottled 1/21/14.

Pours a murky honey orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Small chunks of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and peach or apricot aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and grapefruit juice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a great fruity hop aroma and some tasty flavors that unfortunately don't match up.

On tap at Mikkeller Bar, SF.

Beautiful looking beer with a classic deep golden orangish glow. Quite a nose on this thing, lots of pine and woodsy notes, some citrus tinge to it, and a bit of cotton candy.

The flavor follows suit, nearly perfect but for a tad too much candied sweetness on the finish for my taste. Great balance of bright hoppy flavors, bitterness, and that trademark west coast dryness. Dank and resinous, maybe a little too slick and oily for me… but no major gripe there either.

I've had other beers from them that I liked, but this one really grabbed my attention. A fantastic beer, and another brilliant example of a west coast IPA.
