Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. A foamy lattice of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, tropical fruit, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with grape Tootsie Pop, floral, 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 and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with fresh, fruity hop presence that makes this one tasty and easy to drink.

Pours a golden color with a nice foamy cap in the Peroni lager glass. One of the least orange-tinted IPAs I've seen from California. Brewer notes that hops are primarily Galaxy, Falconer’s Flight, and Southern Cross. Plenty bitter with some twiggy and resiny taste.

A variety of fruity enliven the massive hop onslaught. Some pineapple and mango, but overwhelmed by the grapefruit. Very pithy. The malt is so pale and ghostly, but there is some toasty flavor followed by the alcohol sensation.

Yet another sharp and acidic West Coast IPA. Perfectly drinkable but a very thin body and a real throat scratcher. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at the North Park Tasting Room.

Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a half finger white head with decent retention and lacing. Aroma of bready malt, pineapple, grapefruit and citrus hops. Flavor follows with citrus, slightly piney hops, citrus rind, light tropical fruit, mild malt. Long, lingering citrus hop bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied. A nice citrusy IPA that emphasizes hops over malt, but still well balanced. A solid, enjoyable hoppy IPA from a brewery with a name that didn't inspire confidence, but still delivered.
