This beer is a quintessential San Diego IPA. Big on hops, piney, floral, nice and 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
S - Hoppy, piney, and floral
T - Delicious
M - Very good
O - Highly recommended

Poured from a can into my Spiegelau IPA glass. Forms a thick foamy white head that recedes quite slowly and leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. Golden yellow in color. Smells citrusy, a little sweet, and a little bready from the malts. A lot of orange up front with a little mango and a nice malt backbone to balance it out. I get just a tiny bit of earthiness as well. Not overly bitter. Very easy to drink. Mouthfeel is right where it needs to be. Light and crisp and great to session with. Overall, this is a solid IPA. Nothing outstanding, but considering this is one of the oldest American IPAs out there it still holds its own.
