Came out with a lot of sediment and haze all around the beer. Color was orangish. Head was small. Aroma was nice, plenty of mangoey tropical fruit aroma to it, really nailed it in that department, despite having really good hop aroma, they kept the ibu at 79.

Taste, still kept up with the hop mouthfeel as the primary flavor, versus grating bitterness. This had a strong, yet delicate hop touch, I wouldn't be surprised if this had Nelson hops in a small amount here. Amarillos as well. Not just tropical fruit flavor here, plenty of tangerine in here.

One of my favorites at the festival. I love Lake Berryessa, now there's another reason to head out that way. Gonna look to do some camping this summer out this way and tick the hell out of this brewery.

Pours a half finger of head on a hazy straw colored body.
The aroma is malty and grapefruit.
The taste is an interesting, but good mixture of pineapple, pine and grapefruit bitterness. It has a long strong bitter finish.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It's a pretty great IPA.
