Thanks for sharing this, Josh!

Hazy and cloudy burnt orange with a pillowy eggshell colored head that eventually leaves lots of sticky lace down the glass.

The aroma is probably this beer's best quality. There's quite a bit of melon and citrus elements leaping from the glass, as well as a somewhat sweet and bready malt presence.

Moderately bitter with a touch of citrus and a warming alcohol presence make up the flavor of this beer. While certainly hoppy, the caramel and pale malts also play a large role in the makeup of this beer's flavor.

Medium to full mouthfeel with a bit of an alcoholic bite.

Going in with no expectations, this beer really impressed me.

Pours a lightly hazed golden orange into a large wine glass from a 22 oz. bomber. This offering promises to be more of a 'San Diego' style IPA than thier standard offering. Half inch of porous foam offers standard retention and a bit of creamy lace.

Pleasant hop nose with orange citrus and some tropical fruit notes and a light grainy character. Decent profile without any weak points yet a bit light for the style as for depth. Does expand somewhat with warming yielding a slightly more resinous angle.

Flavor follows the nose with an orangey malt character being dominant, with a moderate clean bready character, perhaps with a touch of lemon bread. Body is a bit thin and juicy and somewhat slick. Finishes with a light citric bitterness which doesn't linger too much, yet becoming a bit vinous with notable alcohol after the swallow. An interesting beer though more of an imperial pils than an IPA for me as it lacks a deep grainy character as well as a notable bitterness. Enjoyable for what it is none the same, and much preferred over the standard IPA.
