3.58/5 rDev -4.8%
No head but good lacing on a clear golden with a copper hue body. Aroma of biscuit, resin, tangerine citrus and caramel. Flavor follows with more pine resin, tart citrus, caramel. medium body and moderate carbonation. Simple, a little too tangy, not all that bad but not very memorable.

Was in Visalia for my cousin's wedding, dipped into a corner market that was on a shithole website to check out the beer selection and grabbed this for $9/6. Pours a very dark appearance for an ipa, lots of brown rolling deep in this one. Plenty of carbonation yields a nice off white 1.34" deep head. Aroma picks up nicely, lots of pine aroma, makes you think you're tasting the redwoods almost. Mostly (Cartman voice).
Tastes like an ipa with a sticky tree in it. Lots of malt though, this one really pushes the boundaries of what a single ipa is, the seven and one half percent alcohol is there, but not bothersome, they paired up some heftier style malts and in good quantity that it makes that 7.5% warming and enjoyable.
Mouthfeel remains with strong Cascade hop character, this one is strongly hopped with the traditional hop varieties. This beer doesn't skimp on lack of ingredients, its big but not heavy. If they could pack that pine and everything into a slightly lighter body, I think this would be a very good beer instead of just good/pretty decent for a Visalia corner market.

22oz bottle poured into a Bruery tulip.
A - Pours a translucent, slightly yeasty/dirty looking pale amber color with a short lasting finger high cap of rocky white foam that leaves behind a sticky coating of lacing on the glass.
S - Sweet maltose combined with tangerines and oranges, touches of caramel, a bit of yeastiness, mild hop bitterness. I don't see a date on the bottle, but the aroma indicates there is probably at least a couple of months of age on this bottle.
T - Malty sweetness at the base with the same citrusy mix of tangerines and oranges taking the lead in the flavor profile. Mid level hop bitterness - clean but without much punch. A touch of booziness.
M - Lightish medium body with a lighter carbonation level. An earthy hop bitterness that is bit on the dull side persists thru the finish. Malty, worty start up front clashes with the bitterness.
O - To be fair, this doesn't seem to be the freshest bottle, but I have no date code to confirm or deny this. Pretty blah for an IPA with dull hops and a heavy malt presence that overwhelms a bit and clashes at times with the hops that are there. I would try this again in hopes of getting a fresh bottle, but won't go out of my way either.

Bottle courtesy of thebeerprophet. Perfect one finger white head with a nice pale golden color to the body. Uniform head that held for almost a minute; lacing is okay. Aroma is grapefruit, kumquat, and tangy unripened peach. Taste is boldly hopped, but the use of simcoe/cascade/crystal reminds me of citra and willamette. Slightly bitter, but with that nice unripened peach flavor as well. Mouthfeel is a tad watery.
