On tap for The Full Pint 6th Anniversary Celebration held at 38 Degrees in Alhambra, CA.

Billed as being brewed with all Mosaic hops.

Pours a murky light yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and some berry aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and berry flavors on the finish. There is a medium 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 that is tasty but I think the hops come through much better in the aroma.

maybe not the most complex of beers out there, but this really pale session ipa is just what i like in the style, with juicy robust citrusy hops and not much grain weight to get in the way. its a real pale base, light in both flavor and body, allowing a clean and zesty hop bill to be punchy and fresh. my guess is most of the hops came real late and in the dry hop stage, because this has basically no bitterness to speak of. its carbonation is high and gives a little prickle to the citra (must be) hops. very light body makes it an all day drinker for me, although i dont think its as good as something like an all day from founders, which does everything this one does, but does it a little bit more jazzy. i prefer the bigger ipas from kern river, but enjoyed this one quite a lot. refreshment value is through the roof.
