A-orange gold with a frothy white head

S-really spicy and strong hops. strong scent...slightly malty

T-oh wow this is just....this is just awful. comes in with a bitter taste of lemon peel and cookie crumbs. its transforms in to a taste of gross stale weeds. honestly one of the worst IPAs i have ever had....definitely the worst i've ever had from the tap. where are the hops?

M-medium dry carbonation with a dry finish

O-don't let your curiosity get the best of you...this beer is terrible. for a brew master to release this is embarrassing. THIS IS NOT AN IPA! it was painful to finish a pint.

On-tap at Huntington Beach Beer Co.

A: Pours a clear straw like color with a finger of white head.

S: Lemon and Pine Sol right away tells me this isn't going to be good. Celery, grass, spinach, and lettuce are some of the other aromas to this beer. Very vegetal and green. Just a bit of bready malt.

T: More of the same on the palate. Grass, lemon, lemon peel, and lots of vegetables. Slightly bitter with some pine and grass, and a sweetness that I would describe as white grape juice.

M: Medium in body with an abrasive carbonation.

O: This is an IPA gone terribly wrong.
