This is a delicious california IPA, but a pretty mellow one at that. It's refreshing but not without some hop bitterness. I would say this all around a pretty damn good beer and a fantastic session IPA. It is reserved and its characteristics subtle in comparison to most of the IPAs i have had from Nor Cal but it hits many of the same notes in terms of aroma and flavor just too a lesser degree. This beer was not entirely what I was expecting but that is in no way a bad thing.
A: Poured nice and clear, amber/orange color out of the bottle and into a glass. Had a light white head that quickly disappeared.
S: Citrus, pine, malt and a hint of dirty socks. The aroma is not all it could be.
T: A hoppy malty brew. This IPA has a definite, but not completely in your face, hop presence.
All in all above average beer. This is a California IPA that is not likely to offend.
