33cl bottle. Pours a straw yellow with a modest white head that gives way to a thin lacing. Smells of citrus and tropical fruit hops. The taste is dominated by tropical fruits, mostly pineapple and mango, as well as some citrus and honey. Medium bodied, sticky pine-sweet aftertaste. Not bad.

Fresh 12 oz bottle.
An excellent IPA with a mix of hops that produces citrus fruit, tropical fruit, evergreen and herbal notes, These are apparent in both the aroma and flavor.
Excellent clarity in an amber body topped by a good head.

Fresh at the source.

Everything about this beer was very, very good. Clean, crisp and very easy drinking west coast IPA. Orange, Tangerine, grapefruit & Lemon citrus followed by a clean piney and dry back end finish. Super refreshing and just a very nice surprise when I honestly wasn't expecting much, but this delivered on all fronts. Recommended.

Pours two fingers of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is lots of pine and woods.
The taste is grass and pine bitterness.
The texture is thicker.
Fine enough.

Pours a light golden color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is lemony, like wheat and hops. The taste has a good bit of citrus and a little bit of bitterness. Herbal, leafy, definitely has a solid cascade flavor. This is drinkable. Smooth. Thoughtless. White IPA learning more on the hoppy side. Light and refreshing. Not bad.

On tap at Tony's Darts Away in Burbank, CA.

Pours a hazy golden-orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and grapefruit juice flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with solid citrus forward hop qualities all around.

Serving type: on tap.

S - Pine, lemon and orange citrus.

T - Pine, grass, lemon, orange. Very welcoming west coast ipa.

D - Light and crisp with good carbonation.

O - A nice BP clone. Hopefully this fills the void we now have in WA.
