4.14/5 rDev +4.8%
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.

Just released yesterday. Still not sure if this is a one-time or rotating brew. Had it on tap at Naja's Place in Redondo. Nice, crisp, clean taste and lots of great hops taste (they used Amarillo and Centennial). Not over the top. Another great IPA from ESBC. Will absolutely seek this one out again soon.

4/5 rDev +1.3%
Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Bottled May 22 / 2014.
Deep brass yellow, with a nice apricot orange body, with some slight cloudy character. Head is a creamy off white and three fingers tall with some retention. Settles with little lacing and a one finger somewhat thick puck.
Good hint of malt toast quality, and some citrus orange fruit hop character. Some mild floral sense but hop angle is a bit small and subtle. Still quite good.
Juiced body mouthfeel a little, with a solid bit of sugared sweetness. Fruit angle comes out a little candied with some mild hop bitterness on the finish. A good sense of zest and oils as well, with a decent palate coating. A good baked bread and citrus mix balance in the palate between malt and hop.
Overall just a pretty solid IPA.

A: beautiful golden blonde; not brown. Decent, lovely lacing. Retains head,
S: straw, guava, passion fruit, wild strawberries.
T: Great fruity, tropical front end..drops off at the back end. Disappointing.
M: A bit oily, sweet. Not a particularly bad thing though.
O: Im a fan of ESBC, but this one falls a tad short.
