On-tap @ Blue Palms Brewhouse in Hollywood - served in a nonic.

Lightly hazy orange peel liquid with a fat raft of ivory foam resting up top. Good retention, merengue-like lacing tha fails to adhere.

Fruity spicy hops with a low mint-catty note suggesting Centennial perhaps. Potpourri comes forward with a floral sweetness as the ale warms. Smells wet-hopped almost. Malt definitely takes an olfactory back-seat in this beer.

Some diacetyl piles on top of other barely discernible off notes - marring the positive qualities. Faintly spicy malt brings out the peppery aspects of the hops. Moderate bitterness, though the low but persistent buttery flavors persist into the finish.

Medium-light bodied, bright with good carbonation.

Adequate with food, but this reminds me more of a home-brew than a professionally produced product.

On tap at the brewery. Bright amber body with a small blanket of white foam. Tons of dank floral hop aroma in this one. Centennial maybe? Extremely floral and little else. Little to no malt. Huge hop flavors on the palate, awesome for a relatively low alcohol IPA. Floral, grassy hop flavors. Light-bodied with firm bitterness and a dry mouthfeel. Sticky citrus rind finish. Great stuff.

Poured a hazy dark copper with a decent head, but not much lace. The nose had a hint of citrus hops, maybe just a little alcohol. The taste is citrus hops up front, a little grassy. It has a nice malty finish. It had a medium mouthfeel, not too heavy. Very drinkable.

Pours a very attractive, hazy amber colour, with a creamy white head. Lots of hop aromas, fruity and sweet. Taste was very mellow. No in your face west coast hops here. Just a very controlled hop flavour, with a sweet, malty balance. Some peach, apple and a good bitterness. Quite a good session beer.

Good solid IPA from Triple rock, a place I am coming to really enjoy.
Light amber color, topped by a nice head that laces well. Fresh piney scent invites. Taste is piney, tart, and refreshing. This is a nice quaffing IPA though a little strong at 6.9%. Thing is it is very drinkable and goes down like it leans more towards 6%. Good solid IPA.

A: The pour is a cloudy golden orange, some might call it copper, color with thin white head.

S: Floral and citrus hops are featured in this IPA, but there seems to be a bit of butter to it as well (quite strange). A biscuity base supports the previously mentioned aromas.

T: Fairly sweet and bready, considering the aroma. A decent amount of bitterness on the finish and some mellow grapefruit hop flavors.

M: Medium in body and carbonation, as things usually go.

D: This just wasn't a very flavorful beer, which isn't what I think of when I see a west coast IPA. Perhaps this batch was just a bit old, but I was not a fan.

The head is nicely creamy on a hazy orange copper color body. The smell is the highlight of this beer, definitely: fruity and fresh, with grapefruit and red fruits. Slightly floral too. The taste is quite hoppy with slightly nutty notes appearing in the back of the mouth. Mouthfeel is quite enjoyable and smooth.

On-tap at the brew pub. Served in a pint glass.

A: Served a clear dark citrus amber with a thin off-white film that didn’t leave much in the way of lace.
S: Huge notes of grassy, herbal, very fresh and green smelling hops assault my nose. There is a very potent smell of weed as well. I get a few notes of citrus beneath all the dominating grass.
T: Follows the nose with huge fresh flavors of weed, grass, citrus, and a touch of sweet malt in the finish. The aftertaste is green and bitter.
M: Medium body, bubbly even carbonation, with viscous alcoholic finish. Bitterness is very citrusy.
O: The hops in this are crazy fresh and fragment. I was definitely a fan of the smell, and the flavor is nothing to dismiss. The alcohol and bitterness are a bit rough around the edges, but overall this is a solid ipa.

Tapped from the source (3x Rock). Light amber color with very little head for an IPA. Smelled of light citrus coupled with pinier hops. Taste was bitter with very little citrus. Mouthfeel was fairly bitter and a little tangy. Drinkability, hmm. Don't believe I really appreciate wet-hopped beers.

Light gold color. Large head. Aroma is hoppy and floral. A medium to lighter bodied IPA. Malts are fruity and slightly sweet. Hops are grapefruity and slightly spicy. Nicely balanced. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is bitter.
