look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

No date that I can locate; presumed fresh.

A: Pours a clear red with a big frothy tan head. Head fades very slowly with great retention. Pretty thin but widespread lacework everywhere.

S: Mild aroma. Some grapefruit and a little pine. A little bit of caramel. Very subtle.

T: Decent bitter grapefruit up front with a touch of resinous pine to back it up. Mild caramel malt sweetens it up in the middle. Small wave of bitterness in the finish highlights the hops a little better with a primarily citrusy hit.

M: Medium bodied, fairly dry on the back end. Bit of graininess mixing with the resinous hop mouthfeel between sips.

O: Pretty straight forward and standard IPA. Balanced flavor; not a hop bomb. Enjoyable but nothing over the top.

22 oz bottle in a pint glass. This beer pours a light orange clear body and has nice lacing. The smell is fruity - grapefruit and mango. The taste is mostly pine and doesn't quite deliver on the smell. The finish is clean without a lot of lingering bitterness. Overall I think this is a solid west coast IPA and a sign of good things from Santa Clara Valley.

The brew poured a light amber color, with 2 fingers of a bright white head that left excellent lacing. The aroma is pungent and consists of pine, mango, pineapple and citrus. The flavor follows the nose with only the slightest trace of a malt backbone. The beer is well carbonated and has a light-medium mouthfeel that finishes bone dry.
