A- Golden orange. Nice head poured heavy into .05l cylinder. light carbonation. Head 2 fingers, average retention, great lacing.

S- Nothing heavy about this beer. It's gentle and fresh west coast style, refreshing. Citruis & pine, more fruit. But less aromatic than other hop heads, which makes it quite approachable.

T- Much more hop than malt. Pleasant. orange, zest and fruit. Moderate bitterness emerges at the mid-palate, and moves into a solid bitter finish with just a faint hint of booze.

M- Medium-light bodied. A touch dry at the end. Not bad.

O- Above average, but more of an every day, easy drinking American IPA. If you're seeking refreshment, everyday, afternoon and first beer, this is a good one. If you are into unique and thrilling aromas and flavor arcs, this Sonoma born IPA is mild and just above average.

Bottled – October 31 2012
Tasted – February 3 2013

A – Pours a light amber with almost a bit of a green hue to it, has a thin fluffy white head that leaves lacing.

S – Juicy and resinous hop here. Pine and citrus coming through as well.

T – Nice and bright hop character. Some grapefruit appears here and compliments the lemon/lime and pine notes. Semi-sweet, but nicely balanced with crisp bitterness.

M – This is smooth, bright, crisp and refreshing. Nice and clean and has a nice lingering finish.

O – An ever consistent IPA, always dependable and a quality drinker. Would be a good one to have on hand all the time. It's nothing crazy remarkable, but it is certainly a high quality brew that I enjoy.
