A - Bronze body with a creamy, tall, off-white head. Some of the best looking lace I've ever seen! Nice retention too.

S - Sweet and fruity with just a touch of plant bitterness. Honeydew melon is loaded throughout the nose. Edges of cilantro, pine and honey.

T - Green, leafy, waxy fresh hop cone flavor. Strong, resiny bitterness through the back end. Touch of the honeydew from the nose.

M - Bright mouthfeel with lively carbonation and a medium frame.

O - This IPA has some outstanding qualities and a very fresh hop cone flavor, but the hop flavor is a little too raw and imparts a lot of rough, green plant and waxy bitter flavors.

Handsome orange amber color in the Peroni lager glass. Big foam that melts slowly to a very nice head. A fullsome mouthfeel with the right amount of carbonation. Lots of malty richness to start, but the big fragrant hoppy flavor rolls out on top. Nice piney nose.

The hops are somewhat earthy, though not offensively so. This has a tangy, fruity taste that goes well with the danker, darker, dirtier side. Plentiful malt provide some balance, but this is still more than bitter enough. A better than average IPA, to my taste. Thoroughly drinkable and on the mellow side. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Liticker's Liquor & Deli in Ocean Beach.

Really drinkable IPA. You will finish a 22oz bomber faster than you finish most 12oz bottles. REALLY Citrusy, complemented with a very sweet and light malt backbone. Think a symphony of citrus flavor with a light bitterness gently dancing on a light and sweet stage of honey and biscuits.

Looks like one of the best ipa's I've seen. Great copper cloudy straw orange with a nice three finger fluffy/frothy cream colored head. Leaves some great lacing behind that is thicker than I've seen in a while.

Smells of fresh peaches/oranges and tropical fruity mango notes. Pineapple and subtle piney character. Hard to tell with the hops being so prominent but there's a touch of sweet malty toffee.

Taste is well balanced and not a supper bitter hop bomb that some west coast ipa's can be. The hops and malts blend very nicely. There's the bready, toffee, sweet malt character that you can actually taste with the slightly bitter but prominent tropical fruity peppery hop character. There is only one detraction, that there is a thin quality in there. It's really nice that it's not a bitter bomb but I feel like that might be why I taste a touch of water.

Mouthfeel is a little too thin. I think it has a mild carbonation but there's a sense of a watery character. It does hints at a great sticky character you can feel on the backend. I just wish I could feel that thickness throughout. But this is feeling sessionable so that's a great quality.

Overall, this is a great ipa that isn't going to wreck your palate. Sessionable and clean, I say can's please!
