Poured a hazy brassy hue with a one finger frothy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a muddling if pine and citrus and a heft caramel.

The taste was malt driven with a secondary hop presence at the finish.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style.

Overall a decent drinkable IPA.

On tap at Karl strauss temecula. Pours a clear very light copper, more on the yellow end of the spectrum. Nice big head And lacing that sticks around the whole ride through.

Lots of citrus in the aroma, hop forward.

Taste is citrus hops, very nice balance of bitterness in this one. Definitely easy to drink and sessionable. Slight caramel and a bready hint in the back end. Delicious.

Surprised at the relatively low rating on here. Definitely a decent brew. I'll surely be having this one again.

Best IPA I have had in a while. One of the few "true IPAs" around these days, other than from Britain. It’s a traditional style IPA, which might explain the low ratings on here. I doubt most hipsters or American beer drinkers would know what a classic IPA is supposed to taste like. You can tell right away from the carbonation and the pale color. This is no "American Style IPA" but rather the classic style IPA. Which surprises the heck out of me coming from San Diego. Glad at least one American brewery had the cajones to go with the classic rather then trendy/modern style. Hat’s off to them for that. I don’t want to speculate too much, but I would bet the brewmaster studied the traditional English IPAs well. Don't get me wrong, I like some of the modern American IPAs, but it is just so rare to find a more traditional one. Nothing like it.
