A- Pours a nice coppery color, slightly hazy with about an inch of thick foamy off white colored head, but it does dissipate rather quickly. There doesn't appear to be a ton of carbonation rising to the top which tells me this may be creamy....lacing is quite decent, leaving behind small but plentiful patches of foam on the glass....quite a handsome looking brew!

S- Aromas of fresh cascade hops are dominant, closely followed by citrus rind...tangy grapefruit to be exact. The finish is a blend of more leafy goodness, but with some rounding malt sweetness.

T- This is a really tasty beer, with lots of different bitter citrus rind flavors (grapefruit 1st, with some pomelo, lemon and/or lime) as well as some malt sweetness near the finish. This really is a well balanced IPA if I do say so...

M- Solid creamy mouthfeel, with a medium body. Carbonation is fine, and just pops on the palate so delicately, allowing the bitterness of the hops to really permeate well.

O- I've said before that I'm not a hophead, but this is a very nice beer to drink! Very well balanced, with lots of flavor, both bitter and modest malt sweetness. I can't honestly say that I'd be able to drink this all night, but I could enjoy a couple of bottles for sure. Good job!

I got a pint of this at El Cajons Main Tap.

L - it pours golden brown with a small cleat head.

S - it smells of sweet malty goodness with a small hint of earthy hops

T - it starts malty and karate kicks your palate with a nice set of hops overall a good ipa from this awesome Brewery

A - Pours with a clear copper color and a finger of head. Head retention is good.

S - Malty sweet smell with pine hops as well.

T: Caramel sweet malt to start which gives into citrus and pine hoppiness. Citrus tastes of orange and grapefruit.

M: Decent amount of carbonation, rolls off tongue just fine.

D: This one is definitely a keeper. It's going to be hard to keep a six pack in my fridge for a full week. A very well rounded IPA with it's caramel sweet that gets balanced by the pine/citrus hops.
