Pale/Orange with with a foamy head and decent retention and lacing. Some nice citrus fruit, bread and a whiff of alcohol on the nose. Taste is balanced citrus, some tropical notes, mild bitterness, malty bread and alcohol. Mouthfeel is a little thin and harsh. Overall it's still very drinkable and fairly balanced for a 9% IPA. Good effort. I hope to see more of this hop forward theme from them.

On tap at Newhall Refinery in Newhall, CA.

Pours a clear yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest, floral, and perfume flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but slightly boozy.
