Draft service into a shaker pint glass at Famous Pizza in Sedona.

A: Clear, light amber color with one finger of persistent off-white foam head. Heavy lacing remains on the glass.

S: Hops are assertive, composed of well-defined grapefruit citrus and tropical fruit attributes. Otherwise clean with little evidence of malt in the smell.

T: Begins almost dry, with mild herbaceous and grapefruit citrus hop aromatics, as well as restrained pale malt. Carbonic acidity is moderate into the middle where flavors become more dry, finding balance between hops, malt, and a honey quality. Malt becomes very toasty in the finish, alongside accumulating moderate bitterness.

M: Medium viscosity, sticky/rubbery on the palate, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: This is a well-crafted IPA that puts balance and drinkability ahead of a relatable gimmick. The smell exceeds the flavor in terms of hops intensity, while the texture has a tactile grip to it that is hard to describe--but not off-putting.

a: nice copper colored body. an inch of off white head settles to a thin ring leaving some spotty lacing.

s: caramel malts are the first thing that i notice. some hops in the background.

t: reminds me of a hopped up cream ale, thinkin davey jones locker from heavy seas. very malt forward yet balanced. some caramel and hops again.

m: seems kinda thin up front and turns creamy before the bitter finish. slight oil presence to it. finishes clean leaving a lively/ prickly feeling on the tongue.

o: happy to of had the opportunity to try this beer, but when it comes to west coast ipa's, this one falls a little short, not saying it's not enjoyable, cause it is. it's just when you rate it against the others this is just average at best.

1627th Review on BA
Bottle to Spieglau tulip
22oz

Purchased from The grog shop for $4.99
Paired with Thanksgiving lunch, Lamb, asparagus and couscous

App- A very deep orange. A bit syrupy looking with a top fading dark to lighter orange color in the glass. A nice big and puffy 2 finger slow receding white head was there and faded to a great amount of cling and lace that held up great.

Smell- A lot of heavy cream behind this one. A good hop profile with tinges of bitter and candy caramel. Fairly sweet and citrusy with a medium booze note from the 7%.

Taste- This was a nice IPA. I still am not sure how this was so highly ranked in the world of DIPAs from CA. However, it was drinking bigger than its 7% and it held onto the creamy profile, with deep creams, orange and bitter hops. Very layered.

Mouth- A solid medium body with a medium creamy carbonation. A good amount of the candy like orange/caramel remains on the finish.

Drink- It was good and flavorful and actually had another bottle later in the weekend. Not sure how again how it was higher rated, but still flavorful and creamy. Id have it again. Like to see it on tap.

I grabbed a single bottle of this in my build your own 6 pack here in the Phoenix area at my local Total Wine. I was pleasantly surprised by the simple, yet complex beer. The color was a true gold for this beer. The smell was definitely more citrus for my senses. For a 7.0 Abv IPA, the taste of this was probably one of the best I have ever had. The beer isnt that bitter but feels smooth and finishes somewhat lightly for an IPA. Overall, good brew.

Picked up a sixer of this at the gas station in Cambria right before the fireworks show. Pours a clear, golden amber color with a large, frothy, off-white head that takes some time to go down. Scent is quite fresh, with citrus hops and sweet caramel malt (not too much though). Nice pine aroma to this one...fresh hops. Taste is just as fresh as it smells. Citrus and tropical fruits mesh well with a tiny caramel malt backbone. A little bit of sweet honey as well. Piney, bittering hops with a sweet finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly chewy. Drinkability is high. Overall, I was really surprised by this one. Definitely the best IPA to come out of Cambria/Cayucos/Morro Bay/San Luis/Pismo thus far (from what I've tried). When you head inland toward Paso is when you get the good stuff (FW) that make those neighboring beach towns not even be able to hold a candle to it. This one is solid though for sure.

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.
