Off tap into a tulip glass. One finger of head on a dark copper body.
It has a strong smell of orange and lemon, which it nice.
The taste is solid bitterness and a little sour orange. Bold and in your face.
The mouthfeel is normal moderate carbonation and medium body.
Overall a nice drink and I liked the orange scent and flavor that came through.

Out of a bottle at Haven in Orange, CA.

Raul does not approve! Nasty! Nasty! Nasty!

So this is one of those Least Coast IPA's. Or is it a Strong Ale? Because Raul cannot tell. If Raul wants himself a bottle of strong ghetto syrup, he'll get himself a bottle of Old English. The homeboys gave this a 99!? Either way, Raul vows never again. Rather step in fresh doo doo'd kitty litter than suffer through this nastiness again.

Now back to a fresh, hoppy, pineapple blasted BEST Coast IPA.

*Raul was a bit ignant when he wrote this review. Now well versed in the wide world of craft from all regions, Raul vows to try young Hercules again.
