Picked up a 22 oz. bomber of this from Hi-Time Wine in Costa Mesa, during a recent visit to Southern California. No freshness date on the label, but otherwise some good information about the beer. The beer poured clear peach in color, with a two finger thick head retained very well. The Smell was piney, and grapefruity, with a little peppery bite. The aroma was not quite as fat I was thinking it was going to be. The taste was quintessential West Coast IPA., with an abundance of pine resin and grapefruit, and more than a smattering of caramel malt. Very juicy and tart taste, and a quenching yet dry mouthfeel made this a very quaffable beer. The alcohol at 7% was a bit high for a single IPA, but it only showed up in moderate number of fumy intervals. Before I knew it, the whole bomber was a goner.

Another brewery I missed a lot of reviews for some reason, this shouldn't be too old despite the lack of date.

Pours a nice creamy fluffy 1 finger head with some bubbles popping in the middle as it fades at a slow pace, nice lacing all over too, nice rosy amber red color, hazy.

Nose lots of candy malts, syrupy sweet caramel, little toffee, etc, candied orange peel, little citrus zest, fruity hops, hint of pineapple and citrus, etc, hint of booze wafting out. Aroma of an aged IPA unfortunately.

Taste brings a bit more sweetness, candy malts, syrupy, caramel, toffee, etc, with a little candied orange peel, little zest, some citrus and hint of pineapple, not really tropical fruit though, bit of warming booze. Again that aged hop IPA note. Finish is a bit sweet and candy like, fair bitterness, little toffee and caramel, little pineapple and bitter orange peel, etc.

Mouth is med bod, bit of warming booze, decent carb but not great.

Overall OK, but seems like it is aged a bit, not a great IPA at least this day and age, more like a muted aged IPA with flashes of what could have been good. Lots more malty, lighter on the hops, etc. I'll have to try this again if I can find it fresh, but with no date on the bottle it'll be hard. Maybe if I ever find a draft version.
