4.08/5 rDev -7.7%
Pours a caramel colour, transparent, with a beige head. Nice lace! Aroma of tropical fruits, floral hops, and a backing malt background, sweet and caramel-y. Medium to high bittering, sweet fruits, flowers, and hints of pine resins, in front of a sweet rich malt background, equally as alluring. It's full bodied, somewhat rich and creamy.
A somewhat filling IPA, but quite great!

Glowing orange-gold and hazy body with a dense white contrasting head. Lacing is minimal.
Huge hop aroma of orange and grapefruit. It also has aromatic floral notes of lilac. I even picked up a few whiffs of pomegranate, though I have I idea where that's coming from.
It has a strong fresh grapefruit flavor with the floral notes to a lesser extent. Decent caramel backbone.
Mouthfeel is fresh and clean with spot on carbonation.
It's a fantastic IPA worth seeking out.

Pours translucent honey-golden orange with minimal head that dissipates rapidly. Nose is full of hoppy fruitiness - grapefruit, peach, etc. I want a car air freshener with this scent. Flavor is spot on in terms of the nose. The citrus elements yield to a floral pinkness which is lovely. Little bit of alcohol on the back end which helps to keep the sweetness down. Not an off flavor to be found. Only nitpicking issue found which keeps this from being a perfect IPA is in the mouthfeel - perhaps a bit on the light side. Overall a fantastic West Coast IPA that vies for archetypal status in regards to this style.

Pours a very clear class golden color with a quickly evaporating white head. Grapefruit nose that draws you in like a Siren. MF is wet and full and accentuates the overall experience of the beer. Grapefruit citrus yields to pine in the flavors that get balanced nearly perfectly by the grain. This is a stupendous IPA.
