3.23/5 rDev -11.7%
Clear dark amber colored beer with a small white colored head. This is so dark it is quite close to brown.
Complex smell. Sweet and fruity and I had a hard time identifying it, the smell of Passion Fruit. Little bit of a tobacco aroma here. Little bit of grapefruit but not much, this is a tropical scented IPA.
Starts out sweet and woody with a sharp bitter finish. One of the sweeter IPAs. Tastes of tea and wood and bitterness.
Mouthfeel is OK.
Overall a disappointment. Smells great tastes weak.

Pours a bright coppered amber with decent head and lacing. Beautiful hop-forward aroma of pine and citrus. Flavour is well balanced and surprisingly in the same league as other Californian American IPA's. Caramelized malt sweetness transitions into the resiny hop bitterness, including plenty of grapefruit and mango, with a beautiful lingering dry finish.
An excellent beer from a brewery that's new to me, and that I will be keeping my eye out for in the future...

The text style used on the bottle lable looks quite similar to Lagunitas. It's a white label with black lettering and the occasional 6-sided star with hops dotted around. Is this one more good West Coast IPA? On to the beer:
We're looking copper orangish in the glass with a thick rocky head. Great head retention and lacing. The nose at first brings a good deal of fruitiness, like passionfruit and tangerine. These aromas, however, fade, which brings out the toffee crisp base. Still, this could be promising.
Starts off weak, but time allows more hop flavor to emerge. Tea and lemon notes hit first, then a hit of bitterness. The hoppiness starts to pick up. Subtle passionfruit and tea. Its body is much lighter than anticipated, almost light bodied, and with low carbonation.
This was a roller coaster. The impressions started great, then they became flat, then they regain some of their excitement. It won't rank among the best West Coast IPA's, but its push later on saved it from being a dissapointment.

22oz bomber. No date.
Pours a clear, coppery color with a finger of white foam. Head recedes quickly leaving decent lacing. Aroma of citrus and hemp. Taste is bitter grapefruit rind and weed. Pretty well mannered mid-palate but slides into a dry, bitter finish. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Medium body and prickly carbonation. Overall, not bad. Quite drinkable, even enjoyable. I'd have it again.

A bottle left over after GABF judging and given to me as a reward for my volunteer efforts. Pours a two finger tan head over a clear red-copper liquid. Smells piney and resin waxy. Lemon, pith, clean alcohol, baby aspirin, and green onion.
Tastes yummy. Nice balance between hop flavor, clean hop bitter, clean alcohol sting, and malty sweetness that's non-descript, but wets just enough. Hop flavor is oranges, green onion, pine, and pith. Very resiny. Esters are tropical fruits, such as pineapple. Malt has no distinct flavor, though works well as a general sweet with the hop flavors, esters, and cutting down the hop bitter. Hop bitter has decent grassiness that works peaks with alcohol burn plays well with the sharp hop flavors. Has a nice creaminess in the mouth. Drying grassy aftertaste. Moderate carbonation. No problem putting away the bomber; I could drink more.
