4.57/5  rDev +9.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours a hazy, slightly dark copper, with a white head that doesn't last a whole lot. Very decent lacing, though.

S - Aroma is beautifully hoppy. Fresh, and citric, though there's some tropical flavor in there as well.

T - The hops certainly are on full display in this one. Citric and spicy, but there's a nice balance with the malt that keeps it from being too aggressive. As in the smell, some tropical fruit is in there in the mix, though I can't quite place it.

M - Medium, with excellent carbonation. Crisp and clean.

O - A very well balanced, flavorful beer with lots of hops. An excellent IPA.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a half finger white head with good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of bready and light caramel malt, tropical fruit, citrus and lightly piney hops. Flavor is hop forward, with resinous piney and citrus hops, nicely floral; orange citrus and mild tropical fruit. Finishes with lingering grapefruit rind and resinous hop bitterness. Medium bodied with good carbonation. A very nicely made, hoppy IPA with a dynamite hop blend. The malt is very laid back, supporting the hops without adding a lot of malt flavor. I generally like IPAs better with a flavorful malt component, and to its credit, this tastes great with the light malt support. Someone has a deft touch with hops here; the floral notes are great. So glad to see an excellent IPA coming from south of the border. Well done.

Pours a dark amber with a bone white head. Leaves some lacing around the glass. Smell is pretty malty. Sweet with some citrus and pine. Taste is huge grapefruit and orange with a toasty malt backbone. Resinous pine and slight tropical fruit. Some malty sweetness with a bitter finish with orange and grapefruit rind. Bitterness doesn't linger too long which gives this beer a really crisp and easy drinking feel. Mouthfeel is a little thick and maybe a bit overcarbonated, but as I said, very easy to drink. Overall, a great IPA that you wouldn't know came from across the border. I've had this once before and thought it was a bit better and less malty last time. It's only 23 days from bottling so I don't think it's an age thing.

Attractive orangey amber color with a long-lasting foam in the St. Bernardus globe. Lovely aroma of orange peel and grilled peaches. Spritzy on the tongue and sharp with hop acidity.

Quite malty and on the sweet side. It tastes more like an Imperial IPA but the alcohol is less obvious. Some mango with a lingering fruity flavor. Quite bitter and more of it in the aftertaste along with a grapefruit peel flavor.

Overall a quite drinkable big IPA with bold hop aromatics. If they'd use some Baja-grown hops it would be even more interesting. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Bine & Vine in San Diego.
