22oz bottle into my FW snifter glass
Notes from 06/22/14
A: Lightly hazed burnt sienna color. Has that orangey amber look to it with a half finger width of khaki suds frothing over top. Modest hang time with just a few choppy dots and swaths of lace left behind.
S: Heavy spiced hops with grassy herbals and a light tropical fruit note. It has this passion fruit and guava thing going on which is nice. Very spiced up however. I get some ephemeral biscuit malt underneath. Fairly nice and hoppy aromas.
T: Taste has a firm bready malt biscuit there but with equal parts hops to balance. I get a good mix of grass with spice as well as some grapefruit and tropical spiced guava fruit. There is a low amount of actual bitterness with a touch of astringent pucker at the finish. The alcohol is really well masked making this nicely balanced and rather tasty.
M: The mouth feel is creamy on the tongue with a moderate to lighter body. Some light astringency constricts the palate a touch. Good drying at the finish which is rather clean overall.
D: This IPA won’t blow minds with its hefty toasted malt bill but it has some nice hoppy notes with a bit of spiced tropical flare to it. All in all some good balance across the boards. Would definitely have another but probably not something I will be searching out when in NorCal.

2.3/5 rDev -35.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75
Appearance: A clear pale ale color, foamy khaki head that is thick with decent lacing.
Nose: Not much going on, simple hops. Not impressive.
taste: Coppery, metallic, smooth hop oils, well balanced with a malty finish. Medicinal all of the way through and watery, but clean.
Notes: Malt too unbalanced to be good, or to stand out. Mouthfeel is weak and unoriginal.
