On tap at Lucky Baldwin's in Pasadena

It pours a dark amber, very clear, few bubbles rise to the surface. A nice frothy white head sits atop the beer, lots of lacing and good head retention. The aroma is very resinous, lots of piney and oily hops, quite earthy, a healthy caramel malt balance, simple grain and cereal at the end. The flavors are awesome, tropical fruit, earthy hops, mild citrus, big notes of pine and sap balanced very well with caramel malts, big thick bread flavors, a bit of carawayesque spicing at the finish. The body is spot on, super thick and full, medium carbonation, goes down so smoothly.

Verdict: This is becoming my go to IPA when it comes to the local LA scene, I love the malt balance on this beer. Drinks a bit like a hoppy amber, but I'm not complaining, very quaffable.

Serving type: on-tap

3.4/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Orangey amber, on the darker side. Average foam in the big Duvel tulip with nice lacing along the glass. Some piney aromas. Nice sudsy mouthfeel. Thinner than a lot of IPAs.

Some fruity flavors and a malty base start this out pleasantly. This is a pretty bitter beer. Intense acidity to go with the orange and lemon and grapefruit flavors.

The carbonation really does last well and provides a mellow sudsiness. The aftertaste is always that hop attack. Hop fiends, this is your beer. Too much of a good thing for me, but this seems well made and clean. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Sunset Beer Company in Los Angeles.
