Decent IPA. Pours a hazy golden/orange color with a fairly bigh white head. Some lcing and decent head retention. Aroma is fairly mild citrus hops. Flavor is balanced citrus hops and to a somewhat lesser extent caramel malt and dry bready malt. Good mouthfeel, Not too watery and crisp. Bitterness is fairly good.

A worthwhile try, I would drink this one again.

Regular IPAs are giving way, if they haven't already, to every brewer concentrating on hopped up "DIPA"s and other super hoppy combos. I don't know if it's this region or price or what, but I've noticed that the local breweries around here concentrate on a signature DIPA when their "single" IPA is just as good or better, like this one. (Yes, everyone talked about Jet Noise being the best beer here but I'll take Semper FI PA any day.) Poured a golden orange/clearish body with one finger head that dies quick with lace. Citric hops abound in the aroma, overpowering everything else, but in the taste department the citric hops, which are front and center, are balanced with some minor sweet caramel and breadlike malt base. It ends up being a really hoppy IPA that is not bitter or tastebud killing and has complementary sweet notes. Pleasant, easy finish and a very sessionable beer.

A pint at River Stone Chophouse on 8/14/14. A pleasant middle of the road West Coast style IPA. Nice head and lace, slightly cloudy (maybe more of a chill haze) and copper tinged. Good balance between caramel maltiness and tropical fruit hops, both aroma and taste. Low carbonation and medium bodied. Very balanced.

Looks good with nice lacing and hazy golden amber. Aroma is muddled, and besides some orange, mango, and pineapple are less pleasant fruity esters and spice. Pine and grain, too. For a citra hopped IPA, it is lacking juiciness, and instead is more floral. Finishes very dry and bitter. No reason to revisit this one.
