Bottle pour at the DTLA bottle share held at Beer Belly in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks to HopHeadJim for sharing this one.

Pours a clear honey orange with a foamy tan head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and slight earth and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with earthy 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 a pretty good beer but the aromas and flavors are quite earthy all around. (675 characters)

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. (358 characters)

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. (337 characters)
