look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a pint glass, the beer poured a tan/yellow (almost a copper color) with a solid two fingers of fluffy off-white foam. The aroma is interesting and pleasantly surprising (only because I had never heard of this brewery before purchasing the bottle) a nice blend of lemon, grapefruit (slight), orange, light malts, and pine. The taste was also presently surprising, the flavor were a lot strong than they were in the aroma. A lot of lemon zest, grapefruit, and orange mixed with a grassy and malt base topped off with a nice dank hoppy flavor. Very well balance west coast IPA, not overly bitter or chewy and kept a consistent flavor profile and mouth feel the entire way through the beer. Overall the was an exciting find for me as it was a brewery that I have never heard of (being an east coaster) and realizing they are located very near where I am staying for the next 6 weeks while in LA (will definitely be paying them a visit).
