4.11/5 rDev +7%
Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Bottled June 25th 2014
Nearly crystal clear body, with a bright amber orange body color. Nice thin and minimal carbonation lines, with a three finger head that is creamy bright white with soapy retention. A little bit of staying power, but manages to sink a little quickly, with spotty lacing.
Great hop aroma. Juiced up tropical notes, hints of peach, tangerine juicy orange, and mint warmth. Subtle sweetness, with a bit of chewy action. An interesting bit of earthy smoke is on this as well too. Real nice delicious bouquet on this guy.
Another juicy palate follows, with the middle palate filling the tropical sweetness with mild hop bitterness. Washes clean but also a little fleeting with not much aftertaste or coating. A fairly dry powdery sense a bit, with very minimal carbonation feel. VEry faint malt angle, something akin to white bread toast and very subtle if at all distinct.
Overall the fruit and juiced tropical angle hinted on the nose isn't as big or prominent in the palate. It comes off fairly neutral but also solid simple and decent.

Nice lil West Coast hop bomb from the west side. Been a while since Raul went back to his roots, and this lil sucker done him right fine. All West Coast here like Tupac screamin, "Hit em Up." Raul done like this lil sucker nice and good.
Not Mila Kunis heavenly, but a solid Kira Knightly.

On-tap at Venice Ale House, Venice, CA
A: The beer is hazy yellowish amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that gradually died down.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose along with some hints of pine resin hops. The piney hops become stronger as the beer warms up.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell except that the pine resin hops stand out more prominently. There is a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a nice IPA that has a good mix of citrusy and pine resin hops.
