3.93/5 rDev -6.9%
enjoyed in a pint glass
A: Pours a nice light amber color that is crystal clear, small amount of carbonation bubbles, pours with a full finger of fluffy gently off white head that lingers nicely, leaves a solid amount of lacing on the glass
S: typical ipa scent with nice citrus notes, nothing that stands out but still nice
T: Nice taste, nice grapefruit notes initially then moves into a bit of depth with some funk to it and leaves a bit of dryness and leaves an aftertaste of funk which is nice
M: medium carbonation tingle in the beginning then moves into a great sweetness, nice
O: a nice brew pretty much what i expect and what i like from ipas, not the best but its still a solid brew

Great looking off amber colored beer. Sweet and sticky smell and all piney with grapefruit scents. Medium to full bodied beer. Nice lacing on the glass is a terrific looking beer. The taste was WAAY too unbalanced for me. Very hoppy, to the point of "where is the malt". Made this one tough for me to finish. Good beer, how it can win out over Stone IPA is beyond me. They must be same "judges" that did not elect Chris Carter to the pro football HOF this last vote. This IPA is worth a try and and I would try it again, but I will not seek it out. The strength of the hops, or the lack of the malt, makes this IPA's alcohol overwhelming.

Bought at Berkeley Bowl west, no exp.
A: Foggy sun tea orange with slow uniform rising carbonation. 1.5 finger head. cloudy floating sediment like a pond
S: Relatively weak but nice IPA smell, hoppy with a pine sweetness.
T: Bitterness turns into sourness, bitterness is pretty strong, but alcohols is well masked. almost bananay yeast. citrusy background.
M: Tad astringent, light to moderate micro carbonation.
O: good but I don't see why people think it's SO great.

Bought at single at Little's Wine and Liquor. Poured into a pint. Paired with pretzels and humus.
A&S: Lively transparent amber colored beer. Off white head has good retention and leaves some lacing on the glass. Aroma is pretty pungent and include dank spicy hops along with some grapefruit citrus, but also has a classic sweet sugar tone.
T&M: Alcohol is present at a great level, there but not the main component. Hop tone is very similar to the aroma. Good bitterness profile in the finish, bitter but not bruising. Medium body, medium carbonation. Very drinkable.
Overall: Very solid IPA, in my opinion maybe a little over ranked but not by much. Good price point for the quality.

Pours a beautiful amber with a pillowy cream coloured head that lasts and lasts, imbuing aroma and lacing as I drink. This is what an IPA should look like.
The nose is a little more mellow than I expected, mostly piney and almost spicy floral hops.
The tongue follows suit, dominated by the west coast hops. The pine leads, with an almost sweet undercurrent to it. Well constructed brew.
Goes down smoothe, and while the oily hops can linger a bit on the tongue it doesn't get overwhelming or onerous. A fine example of a great beer. Definitely worth getting ahold of if it's available.
