All around good beer. Very solid IPA. Has a sweetness to it, then a hoppy finish. Can easily drink a few of these opposed to some IPA's you can only have one of. Had both in a bottle and on tap. Like most beers, slightly better on tap. Widely available in Orange County CA.

Fresh 22oz er from the tap at a local restaurant. Paired with Italian food.

A - Dark bronze body, pretty flat in terms of carbonation but the lace that was there did last all the way through the 22oz glass.

S - Citrusy hops, somewhat herbal. Seems scaled back from alot of the west coast ipas, remained to be seen in the taste though...

T - Really well balanced IPA, as the smell suggests it is more subtle than alot of them being brewed now. It makes for a very drinkable beer, as it doesnt wear my palate down and the flavors stay balanced and pair nicely with food.

M - Great up front and mid-palate, only ding I'd really give it is a bit of a twinge in the aftertaste.

O - A good option to go with if youre looking for an inoffensive IPA that you want to session or have a meal with.

Poured from a brown bottle into a mixing glass. Not much of a head, amber color. I could smell grapefruit and taste the rind other than that seemed flat for an IPA but the flavor grew on me and got better. Got it at HEB in Belton, TX marked at 49 cents a bottle....most likely old which would factor in the lack of a head...price sticker had a date of 11/28/2011

not bad. not great. better than budweiser or miller.

I would drink this again, especially at 3 bucks a 6 pack!
