3.43/5  rDev -11.6%

Poured from a bottle into a firestone brewing pint glass. An off-white yellowish head tops the brew, about a finger in width with a fluffly texture that leaves thick lacing as it dissipates in moderate time. The body is a dense unfiltered coppery golden haze.

The scents are pretty muted, I think the floral hops and the rich malt blend well together which masks them both. I think some dry-hopping could make this much better.

The flavor is pretty solid, has a nice honey malt backbone and slightly biscuity flavor to it. The hops are pretty mellow, there is a slight bitterness all throughout the taste with a hint of pineapple and citrus undertones.

The mouthfeel is great, it's a rich creamy malty one that goes down smooth. Overall I think it's a solid basic IPA recipe but I feel like there is so much more you could do to this beer to make it awesome.

Bottle (2013)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, SubpoenaDeuces!

Mildly hazed dark orange. Large off-white head. Stripes of thick lacing left down the glass--a sticky IPA. Pretty and appropriate.

Sweet, candied oranges in the aroma. Caramel complements and just a hint of alcohol. Fairly average, I suppose, at least when compared to Southern California's usually upper echelon of hop bombs.

Sweet candied orange flesh, caramel and bready malts, moderate bitterness, and incredible drinkability.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Good, but a sweeter IPA compared to other SoCal gems.

Grabbed a sixer of these at some corner market in Paso Robles. Poured out a dark copper color, auburn, that kind of thing. Aroma, depends on which bottle I had. The first, the usual citrus aroma and a little malty heaviness. Subsequent bottles were a mixed bag, some of the bittersweet hop transformation, malt soggy woodness.

Taste, plenty bitter, a substantial beer, every bit of 2 row used to give the beer a hefty mouthfeel. Abundant caramel. Depending on which bottle, sometimes a little sweeter. Being that I got this at a corner market, and no apparent bottle dating, who knows why the bottles were a mixed bag. Overall, the hopping seems to be of the desireable kind, cascade, citra, simcoe probably.

Good beers in a style and geographical glut. Worth trying, I dunno about going back, just would depend on what else is around, some stores, this will be the best thing on the shelf.

12oz bottle, day 9 of the 2013 Craft Beer Advent Calendar, and a new Cali brewery's IPA to boot!

This beer pours a mostly clear, medium copper amber hue, with three fingers of aggressively puffy, tightly foamy, and marshmallow creamy off-white head, which leaves some nice sudsy webbed lace around the glass as it slowly and evenly sinks away.

It smells of sharp pine resin and mixed citrus pith bitterness straight out of the gate, with some mildly toasted caramel malt, dry toffee candies, and further soapy, lemony, and leafy hops following things up. The taste is more grapefruit, orange, and blended tropical fruit hop esters, neutered pine needles, lemon pudding, bready caramel malt, and a slightly perfumed floral hoppiness.

The carbonation is generally quite unobtrusive, and barely supportive in its quotidian duties, the body a sturdy medium weight, and rather smooth, the hops pulling a certain gentlemanly absence. It finishes well off-dry, the faltering, but still agreeable hops keeping the staid malt honest to the end.

A tasty, fairly well-balanced west-coast IPA, the hops not quite up to palate-wrecking levels, and that's a-ok once in while, IMHO. Flavourful, with an AWOL alcohol quotient, easy to drink, and hardly the mess that all you Advent Calendar "open and drink the IPAs early!" naysayers were baying about a few months ago. Party-pooping morons, the lot of ya.

The Tap It IPA is typical of most IPAs that have elevated alcohol. The beer pours a cloudy orangish copper with foamy white head that is not leaving much of a lace. The scent is mostly sweet malt with some fresh hop presence that is leaning slightly piney. The taste is a nice balance between bitter hop and sweet malt with some pine backdrop. The mouthfeel is fuller in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a decent beer.

Poured three fingers of head on a clear, amber colored body.
The aroma is a nice mixture of mango, mandarin and pine.
The taste has a nice fizzy lemon beginning that rolls into a pine and grapefruit bitterfest.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
