Description: A session IPA with plenty of hops.

On tap at Backstreet Brewing Vista.

A: Light gold in color. Head is white and very small as a result of the subpar bar pour.

S: Aroma isn't super expressive, but there are no evident flaws. Pretty much completely devoid of malt influence. Light floral notes meld with resinous pine. Faint tangerine and oranges.

T: Dry with a lower moderate bitterness. Faint orange notes. This is damn dry, without even a modicum of sweetness. There's some grapefruit rind and a touch of pine. Finishes dry, as expected.

M: Upper light in body with upper moderate carbonation. Mouthfeel is crisp, sticky, and dry.

Overall: A damn drinkable and solid IPA.
