Pours bright gold with off white one finger head. Aroma bursts with tropical fruit, stone fruit, pine, and resin. On the palate there is a good bit of orange and grapefruit to go with pine, resinous characteristics, and a pretty dank finish. Lots of mosaic on the palate. Has a nice lingering herbal bitterness with just enough malt to support. A fine west coast IPA.

On tap at BC's Pizza & Beer

A: Pours golden amber with a creamy off white head that settles to a thin layer and leaves some light lacing.

S: Citrus, pine, tropical fruit, faint herbal notes, light crackery malt, and a touch of sweetness.

T: Spicy pine, citrus, grapefruit and orange, tropical fruit, passion fruit, herbal notes, crackery malt, and a touch of sweetness.

M: Light to medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Another solid IPA from Faction.

On tap in San Fran. Super fresh.

A:An orange/gold clear pour with small (1/4 in head)

S: Tropical fruits and sweet citrus on the nose. Little dank-loved it.

T: Hop heavy-light on pine but big on the citrus. Orange/lemon and that mango that gives a tiny bit of sweetness.

M. Light on carbonation but did not detract.

O: Solid local offering. Had some of the Mikkeller contract brews they did that we're well done. Recommended.
