Pours clear and sparkling copper. Frothy three finger head with rather poor retention but the messy lacing is pillowy and long lasting.

Some pine, sweet grapefruit citrus and nectar hops. Mild and clean malt, slightly bready.

Pale malt is doughy and bread crusts, a touch watery with flavors of pine, hemp and herbaceous hops before a citrus acidity kicks in with cleansing bitterness. Clean and assertive beer, it's good but less intense than alot of other ipas.

Watery bodied but with adequate malt to balance the hops, cleansing finish and carbonation feels slick and flat at times. Probably the weakest part of the beer is in this category.

Well built and designed IPA, great value limited only by self imposed boundaries to heighten production. A gentler, kinder IPA that earns its right to be called as such, starter beer to the IPA world, wish I had tried this sooner.

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.
