On draft at the brewhouse.

Aroma hits me when the glass is two feet away, citrus and fruit, a slight catty edge.

Pours is a medium to light amber with a big poofy light head. Fair amount of upfront bitterness with an enjoyable blend of fruit an citrus hops, lightly catty with a touch of bubblegum as well, the hop flavors combine in interesting ways.

Interested to try this in a month and see how the hops are blending. Damn fine beer.

California style IPA delivered with everything you could ask for, but could use a little more body, and the one I had at the brewery was a little murky.

I love the smell and the flavor, and i think I may have gotten a bottom of the keg pour, because from reading other reviews, people like the way this looks and I can't say I did.

No question I would order it again. In fact next time i'm at the brewery, this is probably what I'll fill the growler with.

32 oz. swing top growler filled 2 days ago.

Beautiful light hazy apricot gold body. Tall, meringue-like, bright beige-white head. Excellent lacing. Sumptuous hop aroma with notes of pineapple, mango, orange, grapefruit, and pine needles. Some sugary malt in there as well.

Toasted malt and intensely herbal bitterness up front. Tongue quickly numbs up a little as the bitterness crescendos and the hop flavors unfurl themselves. Herbal, spicy, piny at first. Citrus shows up near the end. Sugary, candyish malt body provides some balance, but ends up taking a backseat in the finish, which dries out some. Medium-full body with a creamy smooth feel. A very solid California style IPA.
