Served on-tap at Green Dot Stables in Detroit, Michigan.

Appearance: Solid. Came with a nice head, had a decent color, and also had some pretty great lacing as well throughout.

Smell: Bang, bang -- citrus and apricots. Not a HUGE fan, to be honest.

Taste: The citrus and apricots/peaches/grapefruit up front that you'd expect from a California IPA, but the hops come through on the finish, with a pleasant bit of malt as well. Really quite good, considering I'm not a fan of apricots/grapefruit ... especially in beer. I also get a huge iced tea flavor. Much better than the smell.

Mouthfeel: Nothing extraordinary really, but with the taste and the rest of this beer, it just drinks pretty easily. One sip, and you're wanting more.

Overall, I'm surprised I like this beer as much as I do. It's VERY apricot and grapefruit heavy for me, but I still enjoy it... man, I don't quite understand that, being 'meh' on the two flavors. Regardless of that, this is a super solid beer that I'd probably try again, due to the awesome tea flavor.

This poured a reddish amber colour with a white head.

The smell was citrus hops, oranges, lemons and grapefruit.

The taste was much the same as the smell, very tasty.

The mouth feel was medium bodied with a fair amount of carbonation.

Overall a very well done west coast IPA, ticks all the boxes. The citrus hop really stand out in this, crisp clean and quite bitter.
