Thanks to @2beerdogs for the chance to sample this West Coast gem.

Aroma: Very bright lemony hop aroma up front. Fresh melon and mango notes. Clean fermentation character.

Appearance: Hazy amber pour with pale yellow edges. A lot white head retains well.

Flavor: More lemon and melon flavors. Low caramel sweetness. Firm pithy grapefruit-like bitterness. Balance is to the bitter. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is bitter.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with high carbonation. Slightly oily. No alcohol heat.

Overall impression: A dry and crisp IPA. Full tilt West Coast. Big and tropical. Well done!

Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

A bright orange amber body color, tangerine to apricot in appearance, with a little bit of thin carbonation, through a somewhat clear and thick body. Head is off white and three fingers tall, with very soapy retention. A real nice shiny glass and appearance, with some lacing.

Subtle tropical aromatics of hop on the nose, somewhere between mango and pineapple and a bit of woody pine. Some vanilla sweetness comes in a bit. All of it nice and subtle. Quite a good bouquet.

Pretty solid palate with a real nice juiced mouthfeel. Hints at a little bit of brown sugar and syrup but considerably lighter with the hop tropical juiced angle. Some surprising faint toasty notes of white bread and bakery sweetness, both in the mid palate and on the finish. Much good tropical juiced action, and a good balance between minimal sweetness and bitterness.

Solid IPA.

Bomber sized bottle found at Bills liquor in Atwater village

This beer has a great look- orange with a super white head that leaves lacing around the glass as you drink it down. Carbonation bubbles goin wild when this beer is super cold - I'll wait a bit to sip

Smells of crazy citrus fruits. Fresh squeezed oranges and cantaloupe. This aroma stands out, not run of the mill at all

Taste is pure balance - malts and hops battle on the palate. No one wins! Techy fight till the end - malts shine and so do the citrus forward hops - making this a delicious taste

Mouthfeel is thick with not much carbonation. Aftertaste is brief. Almost the same when it's cold to when it warms up-

Overall this beer is a winner and I will definately be searching for it when fresh
