Tried this one from draft. From its appearance it looks nothing special, light amber colour with a thin white head. I took a good sniff and got hit with the hops I was hopping for, West Coast style with that grassy citrus smell. Taste is crisp and hoppy with the poppy seed taste crepping in, very enjoyable. Great mouthfeel. I'm going to enjoy another. Prost!

Clear, golden color. I smell hops of course, but it also smells like a poppy seed bagel (the poppy especially when smelling the glass after I’ve finished the beer). Taste is a good balance of hops, floral, and citrus notes, but I don’t get the poppy seed. The hops don’t kick you in the teeth like some IPA’s.

This one pours in that range of dark orange, light auburn and amber description, 1/2" almost off white head. Aroma would be nice if it kicked down more aromatics, both kind of lacking in this and the double version of it.

Taste, bitter, almost toffee like malt presence on these. A little bit of those familiar hoppy bitter grapefruit citrus feels. Mild caramel. Carbonation on point.

Nothing bad here, but far from anything you'll recommend, there are at least 100 ipas in California alone that are better.

Picked up a single from the Craft Beer Hop Stop in late July for $1.66. I believe the stamped date was 07.25.16 but it has been refrigerated at the bottle shop and my beer fridge.

Beer poured golden orange with a decent white head on the initial pour.

Nose is light citrus forward.

Taste is balanced for the style. The pale malt base is accentuated by a vegetal and citrus hop flavor, In the end the vegetal won...not good.

Mouthfeel was medium bodied and pretty refreshing.

Overall not a bad beer but not one i would return to given the vegetal finish.

Light Amber pour with thick off white foam; heavy lace; excellent clarity. Grapefruit and pine nose. Grapefruit and pine flavors with a caramel base. Medium light mouthfeel and moderate plus carbonation. Overall a good light IPA.
