On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Pellucid gold in color with a finger of white froth. The aroma is bright and aromatic. Guava, passion fruit, orange, grapefruit, pine resin. No malt. Flavor is moderately bitter, dry, and clean with lots of hop flavor. Tropical notes remind me of passion fruit and mango. Orange pith blends with juicy flesh, grapefruit, and a little pine. Clean, dry, hoppy finish. Highly recommended.

On tap at Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach, CA.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. A foamy curtain of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, peach, apricot, and tropical fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with a citrus zest flavor on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a fantastic smell and some tasty flavors.

On-tap at Beachwood I,

A: Pours a golden amber with a soft white head, some thick lace as the pint is drunk.

S: All about the tropicality, but has a green streak running through it. Pungent, West Coast style.

T: Mango, passion fruit and grapefruit dominate the flavour which is very light on the malt. Rich and flavourful, another tasty IPA from these guys.

M: Medium-bodied, crisp, dry, resiny and dank.

O: A stellar IPA, and well worth a try if you're a fan of this style. Right up there with Melrose.
