22oz bottle at fridge temp poured into a large mug. 30625 0010324 is the bottle code. I haven't a clue what that means.

Pours clear coppery golden with a nice big white head and strong retention. Lots of carbonation. Pretty beer. Smell is spicy hops. Some grass. Doesn't smell great.

Taste is not bad. Some hay. Some fruit. A little, dry bitter finish. A little floral.

Mouthfeel is lightish and a little slick. Overall, it's pretty good.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear light amber color with a quickly fading white head that leaves chunks of lacing.

Smells of citrus and pine hops.

Tastes of the citrus hops with some malt undertones. Hops lead off with citrus and pine notes, but I also pick up a little vegetable-like notes that are not enjoyable. Fairly bitter overall. Hops lead into malt sweetness with some caramel along with toasted bread. Alcohol is well hidden.

Mouthfeel is medium with a slightly crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a decent IIPA, but the vegetable-like hops really hit a note I don't like.

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

Pours a clear orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a small cap 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 yeast. Taste is much the same with a mild hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is pretty tasty but the yeast flavor is pretty noticeable.
