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.

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.

On-tap at Craft Day Afternoon. Stange-like taster.

A - A finger of off-white foam that has a good retention and leaves glass-coating less tops a murky dark orange body.

S - There's a light chive note that I tend to get from Citra hops. However, it's largely overshadowed by grapefruit and orange zest. There's minimal malt character in the periphery - very West Coast aesthetic here.

T - Tastes nearly identical to the aroma. Heavy grapefruit and zesty notes, with light pine and a hint of green onion. A bit of crackery malt in the background. Not quite as defined - doesn't have the same "pop" as the aroma.

M - Pleasant zesty carbonation, medium body, resinous dry finish.

D - A very good San Diego Pale Ale. Not sure why there are such negative reviews. I'd have this one regularly if it were on tap around here (and hopefully it will be).

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.

My first ever 50/50 brew, I think it may have been at the Truckee beer festival years ago. Not important.

Glowing orange pour, and smack of dry hopping, I knew this was the closest thing to high quality ipa anywhere near Northern Nevada (yeah, there's some good ones in Reno, but not in this upper echelon). Maybe its just bc its from truckee, but its not a stretch to smell some good buds in this one.

Taste, so light on its feet, yet so much hop mouthfeel and bitterness. I would guess simcoe is all up in this brother, along with some cascade hops for the classic feel. Really, all the stuff you loved from ipas decade+ ago, and the new wave of hop varieties you get in the newbies, that instead of the usual citrus, you now have lots of pine (and citrus grapefruit).

I think I've come to like the ryepa a little bit more, but given all the slide variation ipas, the rye and the 5 or so stout varieties, this is my favorite "local" brewery (unless Sierra Nevada counts, but its like 200 miles from me. . .)

This poured the color of a malty amber with some light foaming. I found an aroma of toffee and pineapples to dominate. It’s intensely bitter with a lingering sweetness. The malt balances out the candied pineapple, caramel and toffee notes from the hops.
