3.94/5  rDev -11.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Poured a hazy golden orange with a nice light whitish head

Smell: Citrus forward, with pineapple dominant, a bit of lemon a hint of floral hoppiness

Taste: More pine than the nose, not a ton of bitterness at first but more pronounced as I drink more, great pineapple and grapefruit notes

Mouthfeel: Moderate bitterness and medium bodied with good carbonation for the style.

Overall: Pretty solid IPA, not my favorite but quite good!

On tap for the 2012 Peter Reeves Memorial Sourfest at Churchill’s Pub & Grille in San Marcos, CA.

Pours a hazy yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of citrus fruit, citrus zest, and some tropical fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and pretty refreshing after drinking a bunch of sours.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

On tap at Blind Lady Ale House. Handsome amber color with plenty of carbonation and nice lacing in the glass. More than adequate sudsiness. Hugely fragrant, is the main thing that makes you sip up an notice this.

Sweet and spicy, and I'd go so far as to call it rich. It tastes even stronger than the ABV, more like a Double IPA, and it seems more substantial than the usual thin and harsh IPAs. Amazing spicy notes keep coming up. The aroma is sensational and carries over into each sip. It does get rather bitter, though it's hard to complain too much as this stuff is so full of flavor.
