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.

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.

12oz to a pint glass

A - pours a semi-pale gold. Loose white head.

S - some fruity hops, kind of a little flat, nice but seems very thin. Not sure on freshness, but perhaps it's a little old?

T - malty sweetness on the front. Some pine and citrus on the hops, finishes with more caramel type malt on the end.

M - nothing great nothing bad.

O - didn't wow me. Not bad, but would be unlikely to order it in the future.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: Aggressive pour leads to two fingers fairly quickly diminishing off white head. Translucent copper color. Bright carbonation. Moderate lacing. Head is very bubbly.

S: Bright, immediate citrus. Grapefruit, orange, orange juice, orange pulp. Background of caramel malt, with a touch of woody/herbaceous pine.

T: Good intro of malt sweetness. Caramel, bit of toffee. Juicy, citric hops take over. Again, lot of orange and grapefruit pulp, touch of the rind astringency, but not much. Soapiness in the back end with an herbal, drying finish.

M: Creamy, softer mouthfeel. Very lush and full bodied, but the carbonation saves it from being flabby or overdone.

O: I think the GABF gold is excessive, but this is a very good, "basic" IPA. Would not kick out of bed.

Fresh keg on tap at Harry's Hofbrau. Brilliantly clear golden amber with a clingy white head. Big bright citrus hop nose with some bready malt buried beneath. Floral aromas meet pineapple and grapefruit. Gentle bready malts hit the tongue first, followed by floral hop notes, grapefruit, pineapple. Nice medium-light body with gentle bitterness in the finish. This is quite good. Maybe not quite world class, but very well balanced and drinkable with some great flavors.
