lynx1245 brought some goodies down for us. Thanks Trevor!
Appearance: Pours a pale gold with a pretty hefty amount of yeast sediment suspended inside. Thin, rocky, sticky white head doesn't hang around very long. Spotty lacing. EDIT: second bottle had better head and lacing than the first. Pretty impressive lacing actually.
Smell: Tons of pine and oily hop resin. Wow! Grapefruit everywhere. Caramel! Getting some earthy, herbal tones as well. Great aroma with plenty of balance.
Taste: What an awesome IPA. Reminds me a lot of Stone IPA, but with more balance. A good amount of oily hops, but not over the top. A lot of earthy tones inside. Feels... natural. Lots of caramel, butter and grapefruit as well. Just a really, really good IPA.
Mouthfeel: Creamy and very sticky. Low carbonation, but somewhat thin in terms of body. Slides right down.
Drinkability: Could drink 'em all day long. Light, fresh, and super smooth. Wish this was available in SLO.
Serving type: bottle

Poured a clear yellow. The head had great retention and left a decent lacing.
Aroma was very floral and a slight note of orange peel and grains of paradise.
Mouth feel was a little thin but the flavor is very bold. The flavor was piney, grassy with hints of black pepper and straw or hay.
This beer finishes very long and leaves a resin feel on the tongue, with notes of orange pith and kiwi rind.
Serving type: on-tap
