3.5/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a clear bright copper beneath two fingers of fizzy porous head and spotty lacing.

S - Faint passionfruit, orange, mild hop aromas.

T - Fruity hops, passionfruit and citrus, Fanta with a hint of pine in the finish. Very tame on the IBUs.

M - High carbonation, light to medium body.

O - Seems more of a APA than IPA considering the lack of bitterness, but pleasant enough.

Pours with a thick finger of good cream colored head that displays decent retention and lacing. Amber in color. Smells of a nice subdued hoppiness with mostly floral and pine along with a definite malt presence. Tastes mostly of piney and resiny hops with a bit of flora. Plenty of malt balance, which works until the finish which is a bit too sweet. Medium in body with a high level of prickly carbonation. A few swirls of the glass can take the head from zero to an inch... too many bubbles. Overall this is a nice IPA for a brewpub, but can't really stand up to to San Diego's other microbreweries in the IPA arena.
