3.76/5  rDev -1.8%

On tap at Newhall Refinery in Newhall, CA.

Pours a hazy dark orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with earthy citrus zest and grapefruit juice flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with nice citrus zest qualities all around.

This holiday IPA shows a dark rosy amber color with a fair cover of white that breaks down to a sparse blanket with lots of crackled lacing. The aroma is clearly announcing some grapefruit hops and some caramel wheat. Fairly mild but nice. The flavor brings a bigger hop kick with near cloying grapefruit and some piny bitter sweetness. There's a hint of cherry and sweet grain with a very subtle alcohol sensation. This is a solidly medium bodied brew with moderate carbonation that drinks pretty well for the ABV. The feel is fairly heavy with just a tasteful bit of spritely tingle for the tongue. A definite hop brew for the holidays when you might want to pace yourself a little to enjoy the crackling fire. Very nice.

Served in a footed glass at Ale Arsenal.

Nice head. Mahogany clear. Heavy lacing. Smells of earthy hops. Citrus zest. Tropical fruit. Dryish. Zesty. Hint of caramel malt. Light, spritely, and crisp. This is a rather light, subdued, interesting AIPA. Still, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Recommended. Would have again. Aftertaste is dry and spicy.
