3.4/5  rDev +4.6%

On tap at the LA airport.

Pours a light amber with small carbonation rising. Slightly off-white creamy head. Not a bad start.

Aroma is grapefruit and light malts. Some sweetness in there.

Taste is dominated by hops. Grapefruit, sweetness and a slightly woody bitterness. Not much balance to this one.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied. Dry at the end. Cleansing.

Overall, a decent enough beer. Drinkable. More balance would have been an improvement.

This was a pretty good beer. I have definitely had stronger ipas though.

Appearance- amber color, transparent

Smell- sweet, hops

Taste- grapefruit, hops

Mouthfeel- light to medium body, dry finish

Drinkability- I would drink it again. It's not too bad but I have had better.

On draft at Karl Strauss Universal City, 11/26/07.

Clear golden pour, small white head. Smell is hops - can't give more detail than that. Not especially pine, citrus or resin, just... hops. I put some up my nose trying desperately to get more hop aroma. Flavor is grapefruit and resin dominated with a touch of malt peeking through late in the taste. Finish is fairly clean, although a corn flavor appears at the tail end.

Pedestrian, at best.
