Pours a clear, golden body with two finger head and sticky lace that leaves patches as it slowly dies.
Aroma is classic citric hops with sharpness and bit of soap and really a "west coast aroma".
Well balanced as this is a lot hop of hops but doesn't nuke my tongue and is an easy drinker that is hop heavy but with a touch of sweetness.
One of those IPAs that you could drink anytime.

On Draft at Spokeasy Public House

A: Pours a golden orange, a little hazy, with a nice amount of frothy white head that fades

S: Surprisingly malty caramel sweetness up front with a nice hit of citrus hops following. Not what I was expecting

T: That's more like it, big citrus hop punch; orange, grapefruit, maybe even a little tropical fruit and floral notes in there too, nice malt backbone that comes out as it warms, grapefruit and pine bitterness on the finish

M: Medium body, just enough carbonation to keep the palate fresh

O: Might not be my favorite, but it shows why it's earned a reputation as a classic San Diego IPA. Very solid brew.
