4.38/5  rDev +11.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours an impressive bright yellow that should never be mistaken for BMC, it comes in lookin' like a heady brew. The aroma is exactly what a hop forward San Diego ipa should be, varied citrus and tropical fruit teamed with a green vegetal new proprietary hop essence.

Taste is even superior to the good dry hop aroma, when buckets of hops drink effortlessly, when its just in the zone so to speak. You're getting gobs of hop mouthfeel, but little to no alcohol, just barely enough malt and sweetness (crystal kept away or to a minimum here) to boost the hops even further into prominence. You're tasting more of the papaya, mango, lemon and tangerine than you were smelling. Maybe some chinook hop creating a very mild spicy/mint/bitter edge very late in the aftertaste.

These guys have really broken into the most market saturated place for this style beer, but they really are off to an amazing first year with a couple of these ipa's I've tried. Had on tap at Churchills Pub in November 2012.

Serving type: on-tap

4.05/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a stainless growler into a LA teku.

A: Clear, light golden body with a one finger head that recedes quickly. Moderate lacing and a small ring remain after about thirty seconds.

S: Orange zest, dank grapefruit, and sweet, bready malt. A bit of tropical fruit as well.

T: Lemon pith, sweet mango, and crackery pale malt. Low bitterness for the style. Not overly flavorful, but extremely balanced.

M: Light, airy, and drinkable. Very soft texture.

O: Extremely drinkable. Not the most potent flavor or aroma, but I could put entirely too much of this away. Session IPA feel with a bit more hefty ABV.

Serving type: growler
