3.45/5 rDev +6.5%
Poured from a growler filled the same day. Thin head on a clear medium straw colored body.
The aroma is honey with a lemon drop. Nice.
The taste is moderate lemon bitterness, good balance thoughout.
The texture is crisp with soft edges. Moderate carbonation.
An enjoyable beer.

Attractive light amber in the Stella Artois glass. Nicely sudsy on the tongue and plenty of foam in the glass. Aroma is flowery with a touch of resins.
Pleasant balance of malt and hops. Not an IPA by any stretch of imagination. Quite malty and strong (label and brewery currently say this is 7.8%). Hops are piney and aromatic, but the bitterness comes on for the finish. Tangy and spicy brew that is prefectly drinkable. It's more like a strong pale Bock Beer than anything else. Actually an improvement on a lot of Bocks with the tasty hops.
Bitterness level is just right for gulping, but it it rather alcohol infused. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Beer Revolution in Oakland.

Bottle shared at the September iteration of the Santa Cruz tasting series. Pours, uh, gold with a small off-white head. Aroma is crystal malty with a small piney hoppiness and some muddled esters. Flavor is malty with caramel and crystal notes, aged faded hops, and low bitterness. Probably has a fair amount of age on it.

On tap at Barclay's.
A: Pours a clear copper-amber with off-white head. It's brought by a server, so I can't comment on retention.
S: Soapy, with a biscuit-like sweet aroma.
T: Yes: soap. It's floral with this weird oily, slightly bitter flavor that carries into the back end. A mild sweetness imparted from biscuit flavors. To say there are better IPAs is an understatement.
M: Unredeeming and watery.
O: I couldn't even finish 25% of this.

Pours a cloudy golden amber with a small white head that has decent retention and leaves a large amount of lacing in the glass. The aroma is pine, grapefruit, sugar cookie, and caramel. The taste is sweet with sugar cookie, pine, grapefruit, and caramel. The finish is quite bitter with a lingering pine taste. Medium-full body. Low carbonation. A bit too sweet, and a bit too thick.

Bottled on 6.11.2013, enjoyed mid-July.
This pours a clear golden straw color with generous foam. The aroma has a piney green grass stickiness to it. The flavor is surprisingly piney and resiny with a pronounced bitterness and a phenol heavy, slightly boozy finish that's somewhat off putting. The boozy aroma becomes more pronounced as it opens up, and finishes off balance.
I'm guessing nugget hops? From the description on the bottle (something about appreciating this tasty nugget of a beer).
