Meh....., this is barely an IPA, to say the least. Hop presence is minimal. There are far better. All you need to do is read the other reviews. They say it all.

(Draft revisited, The Refinery, Newhall, CA 2/21/15) Second time trying this one and it dropped a notch down but still a pretty good beer.

LIzard's Mouth IPA (favorable)

Sort of taste like a less hoppy ballast point ipl. I don't think this is an ipa. But this is defiantly drinkable

look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: Poured a little cloudy with an average head.

Smell: I got piney hops in the nose.

Taste: Not as hoppy as I anticipated from the smell. More disappointing: I’m getting wet cardboard on my tastebuds.

Mouthfeel: Medium body.

Drinkability: Just too sharp in the aftertaste and unbalanced for my palette. Maybe a bad bottle? One thing I really liked: the bottle art. Upbeat typography and art set an optimistic tone.

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.
