3.08/5  rDev -17.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.5

Beautiful rusty orange color with a decent head in the Affligem chalice. Pleasant piney aroma, though not notable for all the hops. Plenty of carbonation in the mouth that lasts well.

Quite bitter from the first sip. Clean flavors but acidic. Simple malty undertone with a thin body. This gets quite harsh after just a few sips. Tastes of juniper twigs, grapefruit pith, and mostly just bitterness. There is a hint of some fruity mango.

This will not disappoint the man who is looking for hop thrills. To me it's ludicrously bitter. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at the brewery in downtown El Segundo.

Serving type: bottle

3.23/5  rDev -13.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

22oz. bottle for $6.99

Look: Clear dark amber gold with thick vanilla head. Nice lacing as it goes down and lots of legs keeping the head nice a full.

Smell: Sweet citrus hits the nose with a surprisingly big sweet malt back bone. Getting pineapple, sour apple, lime, honey, white grapes, all wrapped up in a nice malty package

Taste: Bitter hop punch at first. Then honey covered lime which fades into more tart lime and lemon, pine, grapefruit, and more resiny pine. A sweet malt backbone brings up the rear but does nothing to had that piney bitterness that hit first.

Mouthfeel: Light on the tongue at first but the hops give it a sticky resin that fills out the body to a more medium body type.

Overall: The nose on this was quite nice. The taste on the other hand lost me a bit as the bitterness wrecked and nuances that nose had. Would love to see the bitterness tamed and more of that lime/sour apple meld with the pine! With all that being said this is just a good west coast IPA in a market filled to the brim with great ones.
