From notes 4/21/12: Pours hazy honey gold producing 1/5 inche of frothy, lasting, white head which leaves a good coating of lace. Aroma is citrus and pine hops backed by sweet caramel malt. Taste is similar with a strong hop start which balances well with the malt in the middle to be come more caramel sweet in the finish. It becomes very bitter in the aftertaste. Nice.

Overall a solid example of a west coast IPA. Nothing that stands out but it’s still very good. Good standby hoppy light summer beer.

Golden clear, frothy foam. Perishing to a small crown, decent lacing-High level of hoppy aroma, citrus, tropical fruits. Very high hoppy flavor. High bitterness with some medium, chewy maltiness. Some spiciness Medium body, oily. Bitter finish

Very delcious.
