On tap at Stone.

Pours a rich golden yellow with a small white head.

The aroma is of intense citrus fruits and sappy pine resin.

The flavor of the beer has an assertive hop character that's both resiny and citrusy (grapefruit). The maltiness of the beer was lightly sweet and biscuity.

The mouthfeel was light, which aids to the drinkability of this great beer. The carbonation was tight and dialed in.

This beer is a very solid IPA and a great go-to beer.

Poured from a painted 12 oz. bottle into my Sly Fox shaker "pint" glass. Appears a slightly hazy golden yellow color with about two fingers of off-white head that dissipates rather quickly leaving a nice lace on the inside of the glass. Smells of fresh citrus and fragrant, woody pine followed by sweet caramel malt. Tastes of sweet citrus fruits(orange and lemon), and bitter hops all followed by wonderful, sweet malts to balance it all out. Medium in both body and carbonation. This is a beer that I keep coming back to quite often.

Good brew here, this poured out as a nice looking copper color with a white thick head on top. The smell of this brew gives off a good blend of malts and hops, the hops are strong on the nose like they should be. The taste is really nice here, just a really drinkable IPA. The mouthfeel was medium bodied and has a good carbonation to it. Overall, it's a beer that you can have multiple of in a sitting if you want too.

T- Fresh hops, malts, slightly bitter but well balanced, very similar to the aroma.
M- Medium body, very smooth, easy to drink.
D- Very drinkable, a solid IPA from the west coast. Nice and balanced with all the ingredients. Perfect for a nice hot summer day.
