look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A- Looks like a glass of liquid gold. A very very small white head to it. That's gone all but just a slight haze over the top of it.

S- Awesome citrus and piney aroma.

T- Smooth smooth smooth...Then there is the after taste of pine and bitter that just rocks! The alcohol is not over whelming until I have had a few sips and then realize there is something to it.

M- Crisp and light. Very refreshing and wonderful IPA.

O- My father just brought this back from California and I'm so glad he did. This is a first class beer.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a perfect golden colr with little head. No lacing.

S: Hops and fruit. Smells really good. The citrus fruit smell is very strong and there are more hoppy scents in this beer as compared to other beers of this style.

T: Excellent. A little bit of hoppy kick that gives way to a very strong orange and lemon zest. Citric sour and sweetness.

M: Extremely smooth with just a little bit of carbonation. Goes down extremely easily. Perfect summer beer with quite a bit of alcohol in it at 7.5%.

O: This is a very good beer. I feel it is slightly comparable to Lagunitas Sucks, just a little lighter in the body. Can't wait to drink one of these while mowing my lawn this summer.

A - clear amber - just happen to see this next to a stone ipa in identical glasses - they are the precise same color but the stone is hazy and this is crystal clear.

S - if you don't like the smell of this beer, you are a troubled soul. powerful bouquet of fruit with enough hops so that it is not cloying. we should all be so lucky as to have a woman who smells like this.

T - full, little hoppy but not particularly aggressive or overwhelming in any way. the taste does not live up to the smell but it's nice and very drinkable.

M - round and finishes clean

O - nice brew, mellow enough to have several in a row but may make you think everything else you own smells like crap.

12 oz. bottle poured into a standard pint.

A - Pours a bright hay color with good clarity. A one finger bright white head fades pretty quickly, but leaves behind good lacing as I drink.

S - Sweet grapefruit, wheat, juicy hops, melon. Smells like fresh fruit. Fantastic.

T - Sweet and fruity. Mango, grapefruit, lemon, and a mild citrus hop bite on the finish. Scary drinkable. My glass was gone before I could even finish describing the flavors.

M - Tingly carbonation and a medium body. Refreshing.

O - This is a flavorful, delicious, representation of a style that I usually find underwhelming and boring. The flavors are of all sorts of fruit and just enough hops to satisfy and balance. I could definitely drink several of these on a hot day. I love this stuff and I'm happy to see it back for the season.
