This beer is a quintessential San Diego IPA. Big on dank hops, piney, floral, nice, bright, and tasty. This would be a go-to IPA for me. It is readily available in San Diego, not pricey, and well-crafted.

A - Bright and juicy looking. Faded yellow body, big white fluffy head.
S - Mostly hoppy, then piney, and some floral notes. The wet dank smell is great.
T - Delicious. Medium hop, combine with light pine.
M - Very good. Medium mouthfeel and medium/low carbonation.
O - Highly recommended

One of my favorites for over twenty years.
