Thanks to a random guy at the bar who shared this with some of us.

This IPA is great. The nose has a lot of Grapefruit and Pine with just a hint of cat pee, even though there's no Citra hops in it.

The taste follows the nose closely. Pine, grapefruit, and possibly some subtle berry flavors. The body is just thick enough to back up the hops, but is still fairly light.

Overall this is my new favorite IPA that Ill never have again, as supply is small . That sucks. Its a really well done west coast IPA. Worth trading for and delicious.

Grabbed a 22 oz. bomber within a week of bottling, poured into Golden Road Brewing pint glass.

A: Slightly translucent, light copper appearance. Minimal head, but one that sticks around to create a lasting film as you drink.

S: Tropical and citrus fruits -- pineapple, mango, orange -- shine through immediately, along with a fresh hop aroma that reminds you how much freshness matters with IPAs.

T: Delivers on the initial aromas. Each sip is a delicious burst of citrus flavors and hop bitterness that stays consistent throughout drinking.

M: Crisp and light, the moderate carbonation helps remove any overly sugary tones it would otherwise have. Just an easily drinkable brew.

O: Again, this beer reminds you why freshness does matter. It's crisp, clean and aromatic -- a near-perfect representation of a West Coast IPA. If you can locate it on tap (bottles are gone by now), I'd highly recommend you do so.
