I keep getting wowed by this brewery. This outstanding ipa pours a cloudy deep amber color with a two finger white head that dissolves to a mere film on the beer decent legs and lacing. The aroma is pure California hops. Pine, citrus, tropical and stone fruits, and a decent aroma of weed. It sips clean and pure and very refreshing. There is just enough body to coat the mouth with gorgeous hoppy resin. The flavor is simple and to the point...hops. a little malt on the aftertaste but mostly just glorious hoppy bitterness. This is an outstanding ipa and should be viewed (along with stone and lagunitas) as the benchmarks of west coast ipas.

12 oz bottle, best by 11/28/14

2014 formula, 8.1%, 95 IBU

Clear, amber body. Decent amount of head and retention. Juicy, fresh hop aroma with a fairly large caramel malt backbone. Taste is a little bit more malt than I was expecting. Good carbonation.

Have no idea when this was bottled. Seems to be pretty fresh though. A very solid west coast style IPA. Not sure how it stacks up to the old recipe.
