A: Light, golden straw pale color with a thick white head and minimal retention. Looks like Alpine's Nelson.

S: Nose is really nice. Very clean, fresh lemon, lemon peel, some exotic tropical fruits, dry spice and resin. I'm thinking centennial and Nelson, but its columbus, simcoe, chinook and cascade.

T: Lemon, some grapefruit, a bit of pine, chewy/earthy resin, bitter/spice in the back end from the hops and the rye. Not any caramel sweetness, which I really appreciate.

M: Light-Medium body, light-medium carbonation

O: A fantastic IPA. Kind of reminds me of Alpine's Nelson but not as much tropical fruit or as well polished (and no Nelson hops). There is a bit of lite beer urine funk the first few sips but then that disappears and your left with a very easy drinking, 8%, delicious, smooth, citrusy SoCal IPA. Highly recommended.

Pours a beautiful straw color with a white head and active carb. Nose is a little muted but it's pretty straight forward citrus. Maybe mango and tropical fruit. The flavor is soft and delicate. Citrusy flavors dominate the palette with some light hints of pine showing through. It's very easy to drink and medium bodied. Carb keeps it light and refreshing.

A solid offering. Dangerous to drink as it goes down way too easy.
