This is by far the best routinely canned IPA in Los Angeles proper. I consider it LA's Pliny killer- no joke. This recipe has been streamlined over many years and it is rock solid awesome and fresh. The owners of ER brewery know their stuff when it comes to high-end craft beer.

Walking in with a 4 pack of this stuff instantaneously makes you a worthy person.

I must have gotten a fresh batch. But this was ridiculous fresh simcoe. Like bathing in it good. Mother of god, I hope more establishments carry this. This is just a great west coast IPA.

Daught pour at Smith house in a shaker pint. Really impressed by the flavor and body. Good mouthfeel, appealing golden color, but wanted more nose. I'd like to try again as I enjoyed it, but would like to know the freshness and have it bottled.

Nice, not too bitter but super complex, either. Fine for everyday but not my favorite.

On tap @ the Mendocino Farms Sandwich Shop. Light honey colored with a thick head that adhered to my glass as the tasting progressed. Lots of piney hop flavor up front then a slight alcohol/malt background followed by a clean finish. This is a solid American IPA that is worth a try.
