Pours a clear golden color with a tight, white head that leaves little chunks of lacing.

Smells of pine and citrus hops.

Tastes of the clean hops with a supportive malt base. Hops lead off with pine and grapefruit along with a touch lemon zest and grass. Malt come in and add a touch of grainy sweetness which then leads to a touch of fruit. Finishes fairly clean.

Mouthfeel is medium with a crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a solid IPA worth checking out.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

22 oz. bomber poured into Rogue Ales pint glass.

A: Head's almost non-existent atop a semi-opaque, golden body. Carbonation is readily visible upon initial pour.

S: Mild fruity aroma -- mostly citrus -- with some hops and even a surprisingly malty backbone.

T: Citrusy and light with the malt coming through at the finish (not a bad thing at all)

M: Carbonation makes this incredibly crisp and light -- more more so than you'd expect from a San Diego IPA.

O: It's not your typical San Diego IPA, but it shouldn't be knocked just for avoiding that style. The fact that it maintains a crisp finish despite stressing malt over hops is interesting, and makes it worth a trial at the very least.

San Diego. IPA. Two things which are meant for each other, such as cookies and cream. Rough Draft's Eraser IPA tells you to forget your daily worries with a bottle of this. With 22 ounces, there's a lot of room to forget about. On to the beer:

An inch of sudsy head tops this orange/bronzed colored beer. Good lacing is provided around. This sets up the aroma, which offers pleasant hoppiness for the nose. There's grapefruit, orange, sugar dusting, and a bit of resin. The hops continue their domination of the beer, carrying into the taste. Very hoppy, bringing to mind bitter grapefruit, toasted malt, carmelized sugar, a bit of resin which is especially pronounced in the aftertaste.

Solid IPA out of Rough Draft. If this is a rough draft, the final draft is sure to be a winner.

Blind purchase. This is not a terrific representative of what San Diego IPAs are capable of.

A: 22oz. Bomber into a Russian River Chalice. Pours a pale gold with a paper thin white head. On the refill, the head was rocky and quickly fell into nothingness (old bottle? who knows...no date.)

S: Aroma contains sweetness, lemon zest, and pine.

T: Although I detected sweetness on the nose, not so on the tongue. I picked up the lemon and pine, but also a straw-like malt which is slight but noticed most in the aftertaste.

M: Medium carbonation, somewhat medium to thin bodied, perceived hop bitterness slight, with some astringency present. The beer is on the dry side, as per style.

O: I'm not impressed. It's passable for the style, but not worth my time considering what San Diego really has to offer.
