On tap. It pours a clear deep gold which shows great lacing with no bubbles at all. I liked the resinous piney hops in both aroma and taste but the sweet malts are not exciting at all and the mouthfeel is poor, with no signs of carbonation. I expected more from this "fresh" West Coast IPA (i trust the place), and i wonder if it just travels bad or it needs to improve on the balance department. Nice hops, bit empty and boring.

Light IPA. Good lacing on the glass. Good easy drinking IPA. Nothing amazing

Grapefruit rind nose portends a big, bitter hoppy palate well balanced by rich malts and large pitted fruit flavors. Finishes with a lingering bitterness. Pours brilliant gold with a shite foam cap.
