3/5  rDev -18.5%

Consumed August 24th, 2013 at the brewery.

Beer is a lighter yellow than I would have expected for a "west coast IPA" (as it is called on the menu). Medium amber/yellow. One finger off-white head.

Aroma is a little sweet and a little floral - not at all what I expected with this description.

Flavor is surprisingly thin. Indistinct caramel malt at first, then sweet orange and bashful bitterness on the slightly-drying, lingeringly fizzy finish.

Less bold than expected. Not a big fan, but neither is it bad. Just run of the mill.

This IPA pours out gold in color and is very rich in the hoppy scent. From first drink to last the taste is consistent. Full bodied and dry. This is a good go to IPA. The finish is crisp and clean with no lingering finish as with I have scene with some IPA's.

3.28/5  rDev -10.9%

On tap at Bravery Brewing in Lancaster, CA.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. A foamy lattice of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that seems fairly subdued all around.

I've had this from multiple brewings for nearly a year. The current 6.9 ABV is not my favorite, but still excellent. The 7.1 ABV (and/or 7.2) has been a bit hoppier, which I prefer. I do not sense any floralness in it, as another This IPA is a flavorful one. It is my favorite (of all West Coast IPAs and the one to which I compare all others now. Each brewing is a little different, Brian is a craft brewer, this is a craft beer, I both expect and appreciate it.
