A - Pours a hazy golden colour with frothy off white head that laces well

S - Nice hoppy, floral aromas, pine, citrus with some sweet malts

T - Citrus, pineapple, tangy orange/lemon very prominent but then get pleasant sweet malts together a slight bitter and metallic finish

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation

O - Just an average IPA. Has some good pronounced citrus hoppiness as expected but lacks that wow factor to be a really good beer

Can someone please tell me why there's a Torrey Pines IPA as the picture for this beer?

Pours a very nice dark straw colour with off-white head and above-average retention. The smell is quite remarkable, dominated by pine and citrus hops. Taste is more of the same, but needs a little more to become a truly remarkable beer. Light-bodied, dry finish. Good beer. I'll definitely drink it again.

A- appearance was a dark golden color with a about a centimeter of off white head on it and decent lacing down the glass

S- smell was sweet malty right off the bat which was weird for an IPA but we'll go with it, followed up by some hops in the back ground

T- very nice! Sweet and the hops bite well followed by malt goodness. taste is like a double IPA to me but overall pretty good i would recommend this to a friend

M- good carbonation, smooth for an IPA

D- very drinkable, went down faster than i would have liked, should have enjoyed it more

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 22oz bottle
A - coppery, somewhat opaque, nice lacing
S - Initially - i smell a skunky aroma as well. After some time, it settled down to a more earthy/nutty smell, much more pleasant.
T - Fruit blending into a hop profile that is subdued/somewhat thin, has a little spike within the finish and carries throughout the last. As the beer warms, hop bitterness becomes much more present...getting better.
M - Good carbonation, about where i'd expect an IPA...
D - seems fine at 6.9%... not sure i'd want to put down two bombers in a row.
