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

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Stone IRS tulip. No freshness date, but this was new at the Whole Foods, so should be under a month old. Bought at WF Newport Beach for $6.99.

A - Dark gold (almost orange). Eggshell head leaves good lacing.

S - Catpiss, mango, peach. Lots of hop aroma.

T - Signature simcoe (catpiss), also mango, lemon, very tropical. A little pine also, but faint. Ends dry and bitter, but w/ a hint of malt. Very nice.

M - Full side of medium. A;most DIPA territory. Really coats the palate well. Medium carbonation.

O - Great IPA. Almost a DIPA. The hop combination really does it for me. I would like a little less body and maybe some creaminess, but this is a minor complaint.

Handsome rich golden color in the Cristal Alken becher with a tall head. Fragrant with hop oils and flowers. Light body with some oily character. Lots of aromatics.

I haven't tasted such a piney brew in a long time. The malt is very plain with a hint of browned biscuits before it disappears into the hops. Sweet pear and a touch of mango. This seems to hit the right spot between bitterness and sweetness with a big aromatic flavor. Rather bitter aftertaste with a sharpness that heads to the acidic side.

That great fragrance bursts out with every sip as you dip your beak into the glass. One of my favorite IPAs of 2013. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Best Damn Beer Shop in San Diego.

Thanks to analogchainsaw for an excellent trade, & this bottle arrived unexpectedly along with the rest o' the booty; a brand new brewery I've never heard of. 22 oz. bottle split with my wife after an unpleasant beer start to the evening.

The pour is a light IPA orange. The nose, ah, the nose holds all the promise of young love. Lovely floral hops with a distant mountainside of pine. Looking for the like button.

Grand Hill IPA hits the sweet spot of IPAs. A lovely unbalanced bitterness greets one, which morphs into the nice floral notes noted in the nose, nice herbal thrust, slight earthiness (which I normally frown upon but works well here), & a nice stab of citrus to round it out. Bitterness reappears on the downside & brings the whole thing home. Lightly carbonated & drinkable as hell.

You know when your mom asks you to go to a garage sale with her & you end up finding a replacement for the plate from your wife's grandma's dish set that you drunkenly broke last year for twenty cents? This is a lot like that. Unknown brewery, very good beer. Marvelous.
