On tap at the Stone Bistro. Poured into a flute glass. Pours a interesting hazy pale caramel amber with a half finger white head with good retention and lot of lacing. Nice aroma of herbal citrus hops, slightly floral. Medium bodied with active carbonation. The aroma promises a herbal hopped IPA and the flavor Is a bit of a surprise, nicely hopped but with a very mild biscuit malt backbone that somehow still presents the hops very nicely. Slightly dry, but flavorful, exhibiting well selected hops. I am usually not a fan of low malt IPAs, but this was very nicely done and I'd get it again in a heartbeat.

I had this beer at Monkey Paw during a recent trip to San Diego. It is listed as an IPA / San Diego Pale Ale. Beer is a clear, dark yellow-ish to light orange-ish color with a dense head and lots of carbonation. Big citrusy nose with tons of hop flavor and a clean finish. For a beer that is almost 8% ABV, there is very little malt.
