4/5 rDev -5.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
On tap it has a fantastic one finger white head that leaves some sticky lacing. A hint of cloudy golden color.
Smell is well balanced with a tropical fruit slightly pine hop note with some slight cereal grain and caramel sweetness. Mostly the hops shine through, but do so very nicely.
Tastes of grape fruity herbal slightly piney hops with some great caramel malts. Well balanced and highly drinkable. Each sip is better than the last.
Mouthfeel is clean and slightly sticky. Somewhat viscous. Medium carbonation keeps this one drinkable.
Overall, this ones a fantastic west coast ipa. Well balanced, interesting, and tasty.
Serving type: on-tap

Appearance: It has a nice clear golden/yellow-orange color to it. It has a nice thick off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves nice lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of citrus, grapefruit, mango, piney hops and burnt caramel malts.
Taste: Like the aromas, it has a some citrus, grapefruit, mango (very tropical), some piney hops and sweet caramelly malts.
Mouthfeel: It has a low/medium carbonation with a very nice overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with great flavors and aromas.

3.71/5 rDev -12.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5
Looks like I bought an older bottle... lots of yeast sediment floating around.
A: Hazy copper with off-white head. Retention is good with a bit of spotted lacing.
S: Spicy hop, orange, some peach, and a good amount of sweet malt.
T: The age shows up here: has a good amount of caramel malt but the hop profile is lacking. A bit watery (no apparent flavor) around the middle. A touch (barely) of tangerine and some pine in the aftertaste.
M: Medium bodied with medium full carbonation. Good dryness.
O: Wish they had some sort of dating information on the bottle. Still decent despite being an old bottle.
