12 oz. bottle,

A: Pours amber with a medium white head, average head retention, some lace.

S: Fairly light, has some earthy hop and grass, but I'm really not getting much.

T: Grapefruit and grass, light hop character for the style. Some mild biscuity malt. Undercurrent of earthy hops.

M: Light-bodied, clean, fairly crisp, a bit flabby.

O: An OK starter IPA, it didn't really have more of a hop character than most pales I've had, a bit on the high side price wise as well.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Served on-draught into a conical Guinness pint last week at The Daily Pint in Santa Monica. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours no head at all. Body colour is a textbook copper. Vibrant. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. Clear. Quite appealing, if simple. Inviting, in spite of its poor head. Glowing.

Sm: Piney, lightly oily, floral. Piney hop character is dominant. Pale malts. No yeast character or alcohol comes through. It's weirdly half fresh (up front) and half muted (on the back end). Not real fruity, but seemingly balanced. A mild strength aroma.

T: Floral hops. Light piney hops. Pale malts, amber malts. Clean and crisp. Fairly balanced. I do like it in a general sense. The malts aren't married well to the hops. It has some interesting elements, but it doesn't feel cohesive and focused. Somewhat complex. Not at all subtle.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Full bodied, yet thin - which is awkward. Decently carbonated. Unrefreshing. Suits the flavour profile decently.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable. It's not bad, but I wouldn't get it again. Nicely done and all, but it's largely unimpressive. There's definite room for improvement here; I can tell the brewers are a bit green. I'll try their other offerings in due time, but this one leaves something to be desired.

C+

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Feels so good to have my jar back, especially when a new California brewery finds its way to me. This stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises grapefruit peel, pine sap, light leek, light menthol, and a backbone of lightly-buttered biscuit. The taste brings in more of the same, with the sap's bitterness really shining through. The menthol and grapefruit peel combine to contribute their own brand of bland bitterness, all the while subduing the biscuit beneath their mixed will. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, this is a meager, run-of-the-mill IPA that embraces the lack of balance in a negative way. We need less of these around here, not more...

Single 12 ounce bottle poured into its own branded shaker pint glass. On to the beer:

The yellow orange color of the beer has a moderate hazy appearance. To some surprise, the head forms thin on the pour and never thickens, though a few spots of lace clings to the glass. One smell and I know it's going to be a coarse adventure. That said, it's not hopeless. The smell of lycee, burnt caramel, and decaying leaves highlight, albeit unbalanced overall.

Tastes like faded hop juice, if such a thing were to exist. Sort of like Ruination IPA but withered down. There's candied grapefruit, plenty of resin, and a strong herbal aspect. Yes, IPA's aren't normally balanced, though the profile here is borderline whack. At least it tastes hoppy. It's medium bodied with some slick and lighter than average carbonation.

Tap it. Taste it. Okay with it. The IPA field is a crowded one and Tap It's version doesn't stand out.
