Pours deep orange/amber color. Very slight, thin head. It carries on and suits the appearance quite well. Nose flows out well - floral, fresh hop cones.

Smooth, yet full mouthfeel. The maltiness has carmel and ripe fruit. Rather full maltiness is balanced well by the aggressive bittering hops. Bitterness builds out on the palate to leave a nice smacking bite.

Well crafted and flavorful - meets definition of San Diego IPA, but has a sense of balance that provides a pleasing sipper.
