I have gone back to this beer over and over again. My taste has conformed to citra hoppy flavors with that strong special smell. I have a hard time finding beers that give me what I am looking for. It is not even a dollar amount at this point, it is a yearning. Starting off with flavors from Halo, then Double Jack and even lighter beers like Ranger and my favorite limited brew x-114, Point the Way gives me what I yearn. I cannot wait to visit the pub. It is only about 1 hour from home. If you can find it (I get mine at Trader Joes, but randomly) try it. If you like any of the beers I listed, you will enjoy it. Cheers!

Picked up a six pack at the brewery at their grand opening event on Sunday.
I tried a bunch of beers while I was there and this was my favorite.
The cans are 16oz which is nice.
The beer is exactly what it is billed to be. A west coast style india pale ale with less booze but lots of flavor.

Poured from a pint can into a smaller glass at the Courtyard Marriott in Culver City, Calif. Less than an inch of head. Color was honey amber. Light gray lacing that dissipated very quickly except some light thin spots. Very little film on the side of the glass, just a slight haze.
Really dug the smell. Got a sweet orange citrus flavor up front and then walloped with hops on the back end. Seemed to be some caramel in there. In fact, together it reminded me a bit of the original Sparks.
Surprisingly the opposite of the smell. Got a bitter hops taste right away, giving way to a smooth, orange/tangerine finish. Really digging the taste as well.
Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long bitter finish.
Really liked this beer. I love how the orange, tangerine and citrus hops coincide with the bitterness. Want to take some home with me.

A-Golden amber/tad of burnt orange, tightly packed but moderately thin head that stuck around and stained the glass a bit!
S-I love me some citric hops...I love me some malt to support the citric hops, and I love when there is a promise of bitterness to follow this portion of the review...
T-....Yup...got some orange to match the appearance, some pine, grapefruit, and...wait...this is a borderline session IPA...awesome! So you get this nice little bight at the end that would usually accompany a higher ABV IPA but this one has a nicely packed malt sweetness that punches right after the bitter finish. COOL.
M-Relatively lighter than Burning Bush and the Hefe if I remember correctly, but we're talking a 5.2%'er against an 8%er and a hefe, which has a nice bit of diastic enzymes giving the 'pillow' for your palate. I'd say its a damn fine beer and it will be revisited.
O-As mentioned before, nice and low in alcohol. I've been tending away from stronger beer lately and have been looking for an IPA that can hang with my hop addiction. Here we go.
