This is becoming my benchmark California IPA. Their consistency is improving at a steady pace. Juiciness and hoppy bitterness in parallel.

Manufactured 7/9/14.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and grapefruit juice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with solid citrus forward hop characteristics that make this one tasty and easy to drink.

Serving type: bottle.

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle. Deep, golden copper in color with a ton of head that seems to last forever. Lots of lacing. Carbonation looks to be on the light side of moderate, lots of tiny bubbles rise to the top as it sits. Earthy and floral on the nose with a touch of pine and caramel. Alcohol becomes more predominant as it warms. Sweet and tangy up front with a spicy, earthy middle and a bitter citrus finish that lingers on the palate. Crisp and smooth, this medium bodied brew packs some substance while remaining very drinkable. This is my first brew from Dust Bowl and it didn't disappoint, although I didn't find it overly memorable either. Just another solid, drinkable West coast IPA.
