Decent looking beer. Intensely pithy and piney, lots of orange. It's all around decent. Passable, but not anything that stands out to where I'd seek it again.

On tap at Jardin in Las Vegas. Pours a straw colored effervescent hue with minimal frothing. Piney citrus notes with hints of grapefruit. Similar overall flavor profile.

Exceptional IPA. Hoppy, well rounded, approachable, straightforward. Could have drunk a few more! Westbrae Biergarten, Berkeley, CA. May 2017

I don't really like IPA's but this one..
People who say they don't like IPA's can suck it.
How can you be into beer and dislike hops? Please explain.
This beer smells like a green apple jolly rancher and tastes like a damn melted cherry popsicle.
6.5 ABV, 65 IBU's.. coincidence or levitation? Mouth feels like it just got shot up with novacane.
Ceramic please.
Don't forget to floss.

Pours a pale yellow with not much head. Don't let the looks fool you- this is an excellent IPA with a perfect balance of citrus, carbonation and bitterness. Hints of grapefruit come through most with a pleasant aftertaste.

L - clear golden colour with a finger high head

S - a bit messy. Grain and grass as a pilsener plus some pine, grapefruit and melon

T - Quite hoppy with pine, grapefruit, peach and melon

M - A bit juicy, low to moderate carbonation

O - an okay west coast ipa. Even if it seems more like a lager than ale

Canned date of 12/19/16

Appearance - Pours clear and golden orange in color with an off-white. finger width head. Fair retention, resulting in a thin, broken layer of suds and a ring around the edge of the glass. Not much for lacing aside from a few random spots.

Smell - Equal balance of hop and malt on the nose, comprising orange, toasted bread, caramel, floral notes, pine and a bit of spice.

Taste - Citrusy, spicy and floral upfront, then a big punch of toasted bread and lesser caramel pushes forward to deliver a mostly balanced finish. Aftertaste lingers with spice, hints of caramel sweetness and pith bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Slick, easy drinker with a semi-dry finish.

Overall - Not the punchiest IPA out there, but I really dig the balance and flavor profile that this delivers. If it had just a bit more hop bite, it'd be killer.
