I noticed this one getting lonely at the Mt.Vernon Shop & Stop specialty shelf and pulled for it out of dual curiosity and sympathy.
A: Poured into Skibbo's pint glass to display hazy golden orange, partially suspended inner particles slowly rising to the two finger plus khaki creamy head. Mucho chunks of lace afix themselves in to the glass.
S: The nose was properly citrus to start then pushed aside by piney hops and other aromatic hops.
T: After a long series of IPA's that were low on the hop profile, I finally got a strong bitter delivery with a grapefruit backbite along with citrus peels. You will not be overwhelmed with the BU level due to the minor pale malt presence for balance but don't expect a sweet rescue to your tongue.
M: Mouthfeel was medium working towards full and a smooth and tart swirl.
D: This is what I call a real West Coast IPA. One for the hopheads but taken slowly all can enjoy.

I’ve had this many times before, but, having just joined the site, I decided to write a review this time. The beer is dated 6/3/14 (about two months old). It pours a straw yellow that borders on copper under certain lighting. The aroma is pleasant with a subtle citrus characteristic, but predominantly earthy resinous hops. The taste has more citrus than the nose would suggest and is full of orange and lemon zest. The beer finishes with a sturdy, resinous hop bitterness that lingers on the tongue for awhile. It is medium bodied with a modest amount of carbonation, which suits the style well. Overall, a solid beer. At a reasonable price, it is a nice go-to beer.
