On tap at Beer Belly in Los Angeles, CA.

A- Clear amber-copper body, one finger white head with nice retention; eventually dropping into a thin-medium collar. Rings of lacing persist for a while as the beer goes down. Looks like any other west-coast IPA that I've been seeing lately..

S- Oranges and pine are the predominant hop aromas. Mild, dry crackery malt rounds it out. Not too complex, but it's clean and solid.

F- Citrus, grapefruit, slight stone fruit flavour on the palate with a dry malt backbone evoking crackers and biscuits. Good balance, nothing too complicated. Again, this is a dry finishing west-coast style IPA.

M- Thinner-medium bodied, good carbonation, as stated before this finishes dry with a bit of citrus resin. Not getting as much pine as I have in other west-coast IPAs. Solidly drinkable.

O- Pretty straight-forward west coast style IPA. I'm starting to think that if you've had a couple, you've had them all- with the exception of the likes of Russian River and Alpine. Still, this is a fairly solid IPA with good flavour and aromas.

Final score: 3.80

Juicy mango with white pepper spiciness. Light-medium body. I love these tropical bombs.
