Tasted 17 March 2013.

Pours a medium orange, slightly dusky, faintly hazed, and more light-absorbing than it first appears. One finger of dense off-white head, good retention and excellent lacing sticking all the way up to the top of the foam's reach. Very nice.

Smell is big, juicy pineapple. Wow, I've never encountered a beer that like pineapple in the way that this does. It has that pungent sugary sweetness, the acidic pinch, and the curly twang in between. Very yellow, and quite good.

Taste drops down a notch from the smell. Mostly, it's simple, moderately malty/grainy, with a chalky bitterness that strengthens and floats toward medicinal, aspirin. As it tapers off, I feel more and more like I'm sucking on a Tylenol tablet. Yuck. Go away. Really not enjoying the second half of that taste. There's a tiny hint of pineapple underneath, but that's about the best I can say. If I could cut it off half-way through, I'd be a whole lot happier. Not sure if I'll be finishing this.

Feel is fine. Medium-medium-light body, a little sticky, with medium-high carbonation. Exceedingly persistent, which would sometimes be good, but in this case it just makes the chalky metallic medicinal taste last that much longer. Hmph.

Great smell, disappointing taste. Something that happens to me quite often with IPAs, I find. That seems to be the challenge of them - to boost up the aromatics without introducing off flavors or weirdness. In this case, they hit the first point, but not the second.

New world hops experience. Extraordinary hoppy beer, bringing in the totality of New World hops. Very lacy, bold but not palate erasing citrus
hops. Hop forward, comes on like 60 or higher ibu. A must try for hop fans, or most of us. Incredibly drinkable. Bomber from SD. I return the favour by circling Mother Earth for a visit in my next California trip.

New Zealand hops give this a citrus zing. Refreshing IPA from SoCal.

Appearance-Copper to amber in the glass with an eggshell foam.

Smell-Strawberry and cream with grassy flowers.

Taste-Scorched grass and earth for the majority of the palate with the same strawberries and cream from the nose coming in late in the finish.

Mouthfeel-Big but not overpowering with a good finish and smoothness.

Overall-I would've expected the mouthfeel to be a lot heavier based on the taste but it kept a nice balance through the long finish. Nicely done.
