On-tap at Ladyface

A: The beer pours a clear golden straw color with a finger or so of white head.

S: Actually not a bad hop nose to this. Nice citrus notes, a touch of sweet fruit, and some hints of pine. A nice mix of grapefruit and pineapple. Maybe a little bit on the sweet side, but very nice overall.

T: Flavor has a very bright, fresh grapefruit flavor that is just great. Tons of citrus, a bit of lemon peel, and a very light pineapple juice flavor. Not much in the way of malt, surprisingly. Just a bit of pine bitterness.

M: On the light side of medium bodied with a medium carbonation.

O: Damn, was not expecting such a good beer from these guys. Really nice.

My roommate had a growler and I could have blasted through the whole thing like it was water, but it wasn't mine. It was unique because it was a watery tasting ipa with very soft and dry mouthfeel. These characteristics might sound negative to other hopheads, but I enjoyed this beer. It was one of the easiest drinking ipas I have tried. Not sure if all batches taste the same. Reminded me a little of Port Brewing High Tide, except with less hops and bubbles.

Had this many times. Finally found my notes.

A: Dark golden, orange color. Minimal head but decent lacing was still left.

S: Has a very citrusy smell. Not much otherwise but just like I like my IPA's

T: Citrusy and grassy taste. The first sip is always very bitter (in a good way, not bitter beer face way) and then I get used to it. Bitter aftertaste remains for a while.

M: Decent carbonation. Very smooth feel.

D: I always drink this much faster than I intend to. It goes down so easy. Really is a great example of the style. My favorite beer at Ladyface and I have tried them all. Just don't have notes for them all. Don't feel like taking notes every time I go.

Had this at the beautiful brewpub in Agoura Hills. Review is from notes.

Pours a clear fizzy orange color with a frothy, cappuccino like head. The aroma is grainy and bitter, with a leafy, noble hop character and some lemon. The taste is grainy, toasty malts with mint, white grape and herbal hop flavors, not so heavy on the grapefruit or pine. The mouthfeel is pretty full bodied and dextrous for the style with a prickly carbonation. Wet grain and moderate spicy bitterness in the long finish.

This was an interesting IPA. Definitely not traditional west coast in the hop profile. Im sure Saaz were used in here somewhere. While certainly not a hop bomb, its worth a try.

This beer is a solid IPA. The brewer is just getting used to his equipment, and I find this batch #2 to be far superior to #1. The use of Summit hops give the beer a great pineapple like aroma, and I cant wait for the DIPA which is being brewed soon!!!

Had on tap at Ladyface in a 16 oz shaker glass. Smells spicy, a bit of lemony citrus. No head to speak of, based on how high the beer is tapped into the glass. Tastes like it smells, like a lighter Union Jack perhaps. A bit spicy and citrusy. Nice lingering bitter taste, and imminently drinkable, especially as a summer beer.

On tap @ Ladyface. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a clear, light golden with a solid white head and good lacing.

N: Citrusy grapefruit and pine notes.

T: Resinous pine and somewhat oily. Citrus and floral.

M: Good balance between the bitter and dry hops and the sweeter malts. Medium body.

O: Solid IPA and easy to drink.
