On tap at the brewery. Light amber with a lasting creamy head. Aroma similar to the pale, but supercharged; very aromatic and piney hops. The flavor is big on pine and spruce, with a little grapefruit and just enough pale malt sweetness to keep it together. This is a pretty nice IPA, and I can see how it is so popular as my server said--apparently they don't do growler fills anymore because they were always running out of it. My only hang-up is the pine dominated hop profile; I would much prefer a more floral or tropical flavor.

hazy straw color, nice lace, oily on the palate, stinky nose, medium-length finish. amarillo, centennial, and summit hops used in this brew. citrus/grapefruit/pine hop character, followed up with malt to balance the mouthfeel. wasn't in love with this beer, it was a little unbalanced.

On tap at Blue Palms.
Color of normal IPA? Check. Goo head that lasts? Check. Lace? Yeah, pretty good.
Whoa, smells like hops. This smells fresh and delicious. A little malt sweetness of the end.
Big aggressive bitterness, citrusy hops, pineapple. The malt almost reminds me of a DIPA.
Thick, creamy mouth gives it a juicy quality that enhances the sweetness.
A good IPA that I'd have again. Not neccessarily what I crave when I want one, but a tasty beverage nonetheless.

Straw colored pour with a nice bright white head and good lacing. Malty with some whiffs of orange and light grapefruit. Bitter taste with more grapefruit. Malty backbone tones the beer down on the swallow. Taste lingers in the mouth. Thin mouthfeel. Not totally digging this as I would hesitate to take down another beer. Another so-so beer in my opinion from FiftyFifty.

Growler from FiftyFifty Brewpub. Pours clear red with slight amber hue. Two finger off-white head. Aroma of pine with some bubble gum. Flavor is slightly spicey with dry, bitter finish. Light in the mouth with moderate carbonation. An easy drinking IPA.

On tap at Blue Palms Brewhouse in Los Angeles, CA as part of the FiftyFifty Eclipse Release Party.

Pours a clear honey orange with a 1/2 inch foamy beige head that settles to a film on the top of the beer. A lattice of lace forms on the glass on the drink down. Smell is of tropical fruit, citrus fruit, and lots of citrus zest. Taste is of tropical fruit, citrus fruit/zest, and slight malt. There is an assertive bitterness that lingers on the palate after each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good IPA but the bitterness is a bit too much in my opinion.

With all the hype of the Eclipses, it was cool to see one of 50/50's regular beers,

A: Pous a translucent burnt orange with frothy white cap of foam, good lace.

S: Grapefruit dominant, some malt character though the northwest nose is the major factor. Light pine.

T: Grapefruit and cedar wood, a little too citrusy for me initially, but as it goes along other flavours develop. The woodsy hop flavours are fantastic, cantaloupe rind comes out which is quite appealing, it gets fruitier as it warms up. Solid CA IPA.

M: Medium-bodied, sticky and resiny, good long hoppy aftertaste.

D: In the end, just a well made IPA, nothing more to say. An enjoyable beer, nothing mind-blowing, but any IPA fan would enjoy a pint of this methinks.

Murky unfiltered appearance, golden-amber in color. Not much head or lacing. Soft citrusy aroma, floral and lightly sweet and grainy. Tastes great, juicy and floral, dry and crackery malt. Little grapefruit and orange. Pretty soft mouthfeel, it finishes mildly bitter and quite smooth. Really nice, another great FiftyFifty beer.
