Poured from pint9 bottle into chalice. Murky golden brown, reddish-gold when held up to the light. Strong head, nice lace.
Smell isn't as pronounced as you would expect, but still seriously good. Sweet and floral.
Hops are definitely the first thing you notice upon sipping, with each taste bringing out a different side of the flavors of this beer. Wonderfully complex and covering the full spectrum of the hops you want in an American IPA. Malt comes in after the first wave to seal the deal, imploring you to pick the glass back up.
Mouthfeel is nice, solid but with enough carbonation to still give it a non-molasses zing.
Overall, a fine representation of a California beer. Can't wait to visit the brewery and try some fresh from the tap.

4.39/5 rDev +9.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a 12 oz can (gasp) into a tulip.
A - Deep amber with about a finger of creamy light tan head. Sporadic lacing down the glass.
S - Floral and citrusy hops. I thought it would be a little more in your face (or nose), though.
T - Bitter earthy hops, but well balanced and a bright finish.
M - Full bodied up front but finishes clean and dry like an IPA should.
O - Whereas some west coast IPAs go for nothing but hop flavor and aroma, this is really well balanced while still maintaining the signature floral hop notes.

355ml bottle. Shaker glass. Orangish amber color headed by white & wide crown. Piney, citric –orange & grapefruit- aromas, slight caramel malt & floral notes. Bitter upfront yields to a gentle sweet toasted flavor. Medium body. Moderate to soft carbonation. Honey hues in the middle are swept out by hoppiness that lingers into an extended bitter finish.
