I had this on tap at Wings and Things in Mira Mesa, CA.

Nice orange / Gold typical IPA color with a thin head. It had a malty smell with a little pine and citrus.
The taste was malty and nutty with some hop bitterness but a little on the tame side for this brewer.
Mouthfeel was the thing that I really liked as it was creamy and a little chewy. This beer paired very well with the wings I had and it is a good everyday beer that won't offend with good availability and price point.

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.
