3.35/5 rDev -15.4%
22oz bottle served in pint glass. Beer pours crystal clear and golden in color, with a giant white head. Not very aromatic, maybe a little piney? Hop-forward C hop flavors dominate. Aggressive and citrusy. Sharply carbonated and not much in the way of malt flavor to balance out this highly attenuated hop monster. The result is high in flavor but not so much in drinkability. But based on the outline of Oregon on the label beind the statement "WANDERLUST" I'd guess this is a beer which is proud of it's callous West Coast IPA phenotype.

Sharply carbonated. It's like a hoppy club soda, but that adds to the refreshing quality.
Big citrus taste. Very distinctive grapefruit flavor, though not so much of the ultra-bitter pith. Some lime rind and that grapefruit soda taste. Quite aromatic in the nose, though not so much to sniff the glass. But there's that whiff of grapefruit again. Some bread dough and a fruity taste like unripe pineapple.
Color is the typical orangey amber, though a lighter shade. Plenty of white foam with some thin lacing in the big chalice.
Overall, it's very drinkable with a tangy mouthfeel and a bitter aftertaste. The citrus peel gets hold of the tongue after some sipping, but it's not unpleasant. From the 22 oz bottle.

$8.25 + deposit at the 8th Street Liquor Store in New Westminster.
A: Two inches of head, gold and crystal clear - like apple juice.
S: Very appealing fruity aroma. Melon, citrus, tropical fruit.
T: Nice and bitter. Maybe a little too bitter. Piney.

Clear, dark golden with a medium, foamy white head.
Pleasant blend of citrus and resiny hops in both the aroma and taste. Light crackery backbone.
Medium+ body, foamy carbonation.
A well done IPA, nice hop profile balanced with light malts. Nothing otherworldly, but certainly enjoyable and worth enjoying a glass or two.
