Poured into my Drake's pint glass from the 22oz bomber. Nice light apricot straw colo with clean white head. Very refreshing looking. Aromas were sweet citrus fruits like a ripe tangerine, sweet fermented OJ pulp like scent.

Taste was as you may expect from the aromas but more on the fruity side with orange blossoms. Maybe too balanced and not quite enough hops for me to call this an IPA. Especially from the San Diego area. Now i'm not saying this is bad, because it's not. It's quite good.

Medium on the tongue yet rather crispy and just felt good. I probably wont get this in the bottle again because there are many other choices of IPA that i prefer and can get. However, if i'm at the brew pub, i'll be sucking this down.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A - pours a golden brown with a finger of bubbly white head.

S - Big floral aroma, citrus hops, grapefruit, fruity, hop resin, malts, crackers.

T - Aggressive hops come through, chewy and resinous, dank, grass, crackers, earthy, bread dough. Finishes dry and bitter.

O - In your face and big flavored IPA. Nice offering that lacks a bit of balance.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bought a bomber at Fallbrook liquor and had Nessy burger while I was there.
Nice pour into a tulip. Deep foggy gold color, creamy head.
Smell is mostly bready hops, with a tiny bit of citrus.
Taste is also dominated by hops, with a nice carbonated slick mouth feel.
Overall a decent ipa especially when fresh, but many other options out there.
I feel if they held back on the bready malt a bit it would be a better pour.
