On-tap 2/12/11 at Barley and Hops, Temecula, CA
While I have had this beer before several times, I haven't reviewed it. It's certainly one of my favorite beers. Possibly the best single IPA in San Diego.
A: Pours light orange with a significant amount of hazy sediment. In previous samplings, I don't recall such a large amount of haze. Lacing is perfect and sticks to the glass the whole way down.
S: Exceptional. Strong hop bouquet with a grapefruit and oranges. Very few other beers have this much punch in the scent.
T: Strong hop bitterness upfront with grapefruit, pine and orange. On the backside this beer is not bitter and very smooth. Incredible execution.
M: Creamy with moderate carbonation.
D: A strong, hoppy beer that I could easily drink several of. The alcohol is almost undetectable under all of the complex flavor.
Serving type: on-tap
