4.19/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Clear light amber. Forms a moderate sized fluffy white head. Good retention. Head leaves some minimal lacing on the way down.

S: Very aromatic. Aroma is full of fruit, but not necessarily the types of fruit you'd expect from an IPA. Mostly grape, but some tropical fruit as well. Maybe a little orange citrus, but its faint.

T: Very light malt base. Then the flavors I typically associate with Nelson Sauvigon hops. Green grapes and gooseberry. Again, just a hint of tropical fruits and just a very faint hint of lemon along with a little grapefruit pith. A bit sweeter than I was expecting it to be.

M: On the lighter side of medium. Appropriate carbonation. Mild bitterness.

O: A nice beer, though a bit sweeter than I was expecting for a San Diego brewed IPA. Otherwise, it brings the otherwise typical light malt body and heavy hops, though the hops used in this brew offer up a lot more than the typical citrus and pine notes.

Serving type: growler

4.66/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Had on draft at Societe

A-Very hazy yellow straw with almost 1/2 finger head but yet leaves a nice lacing.

S-Mango, light tropical fruits, and oranges. This carries a seductive smell but found it rather weak and you really got to work the nose.

T-Oranges and mangos strike first, light cotton candy and a hint of pine bitterness towards the end.

M-Light pretty much all the way around with a hint of bitterness.

O-Very excellent IPA they need I bottle this stuff!

Serving type: on-tap
