3.75/5 rDev -1.8%
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.

Tasting notes from 22oz bottle – tasted on 07/23/2013 with my FW snifter glass
A: Big Whig pours a dense golden-orange hue with low overall clarity. Delicately holding head of khaki cream on top that leaves behind some wisps of ribboned lace down the glass.
S: Smells of pine and tangerine fruit with a real floral spiking. There is a dash of caramel malt sweetness detected. Mostly fruity here with citrus being the predominant theme. Pretty nice nose actually.
M: Flavors remain firm with tangerine peel, sappy pine, and more candied citrus fruits. Malt is just some light dry cracker and nearly nonexistent There is a moderately high bitterness to the beer and only some slightly noticeable alcohol. Very light and fruity with citrus fruits again as the main component. Blends of grapefruit and orange in there with some lightly tropical florals. All in all this is a pretty decent IPA.
T: Light to moderate heft in the body with a surprisingly dry finish. Frothy cream like texture overall with a moderately to high amount of peppery bitterness and light resinous after effect.
D: Very drinkable, light, dry and packed with citrus fruit flavors. Almost unique in that way. This is a really decent brew.
Didn’t completely blow my minds but for the local prices I will likely be grabbing this one again.

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.
