3.03/5  rDev -17%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A - Reddish amber slightly hazy. Light cream head with decent lacing

S - Not as much as you hope for from a California IPA. A little grassy with some citrus notes. Some fruit and funk but no big hop notes and no real malt sweetness.

T - Sweet and malty with plenty of bitteness from hops. Also, burned biscuit and a bit of a dandelion or lantana.

M - Medium-light body, nice carb, clean and sharp

O - Seems a little less than an IPA. A lot of great flavors are at play here but the aroma definitely lacks for piney Northwest hops notes and the flavor does as well. Slightly lighter body allows flavors to be a little sharper and citrus notes to come through.

3.79/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Cloudy gold with a huge head of foam and excellent lacing. Tons of carbonation. Way too much carbonation.

Smell: Grapefruit, caramel, pineapple, lemon.

Taste: Citrus, caramel, and grassy malts.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and creamy, with a bitter hop aftertaste.

The Verdict: Pretty good. It offers a huge aroma but the flavors are well balanced and muted. My only real complaint is the over carbonation- no matter how perfect the pour, half the glass was foam with each bottle.

3.89/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle; into a tumbler.
Appearance - gold, cloudy; thin, foamy head that leaves decent lacing.
Smell - pineapple and mango, faint juicy fruit.
Taste - not bad, but falls short of the nose, lacking with a strong pineapple and mango presence. A bit too boozy after it sits.
Feel - this goes from an enjoyable, drinkable IPA, to a weird after taste, funky IPA.
Overall - I'm in and out on this one...which means I'm out. Too funky when it's all said and done.
