A pretty darn good skunky IPA, if you know what I mean..........
Maybe I should add, very clean and crisp look with a smallish well lasting lacing. I will definitely try to drink this again.

Clear sparkling gold-amber with a large off-white foam settling in airy fits and starts, leaving fuzzy lace.

Smell is grapefruit, cracker, pine, orange, Triple Sec and biscuit.

Taste is toasty cracker with crisp and refreshing yet slightly prickly pine, warming biscuit, orange rind and a hint of lemon zest.

Body is moderate with a fluffy foam, finishing dry.

Sampled at SAVOR 2017. This brew had a very bitter and very dank scent and taste , with pithy citrus. It was clean and crisp and bold. Simply a fanatic IPA.

Love the bottle shape. Wish more beers came in little fat bottles like this. I'm not sure why I'm so enamored. Maybe it's just cute?

L: Golden body with a slight haze to it, but almost completely transparent. Bone white head with great retention and nice-looking rings of speckled lacing on the glass.

S: Tangy and peppery: Papaya, mango, pineapple, orange, lemon, guava, blueberry and plum, then a malty base with caramel sweetness and a sharp black pepper edge.

T: Art. This is an example of what the west coast IPA style is capable of. Sour at first with lemon, orange, pineapple, guava and notable mango which persists as blueberry and papaya sweeten the mix, then lemon and grapefruit rind hit, lingering almost as long as the black pepper and citrus pith. Very my style, as I tend to prefer more acidic beers.

F: Basically perfect, super easy to drink. A tiny bit of soapiness on the end.

O: Excellent stuff.

Price: $2.33 with 10 percent off for a variety 6-pack
Purchased: Sept. 1, 2017

Reviewed as: American IPA
Misc.: Bottled on Aug. 22, 2017

Picked this up on a recent trip to Bine & Vine as part of a variety 6-pack (and 10 percent off). Had this before, giving a full pour a 3.75 back on Jan. 1, 2016. Did not have any comments on it. Generally an El Segundo fan and was looking forward to reviewing this. Bottle read, “Mosaic hops take center stage in this truly West Coast India Pale Ale. The perfect companion for enjoying a sunny day on Main Street with us in our charming little town, affectionately known as “Mayberry by the Sea.” The hops appear to be Mosaic, Chinook and Cascade from their website. You had me at Mosaic.

Poured a gold clear color with 3-to-4 fingers of rocky white head. Lots of fast-moving bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Outstanding uneven foamy and watery lacing. World-class foamy retention. (Sight - 4.25)

Smelled Mosaic, Chinook, bitter mango rind, pineapple, papaya, guava, Juicy Fruit, pine (Cascade), grass, floral and mixed berry. (Smell - 3.75)

Tasted better than the nose, but followed it. Mosaic dominated the way. Also bitter dry mango rind, pineapple, papaya, guava, pine, spicy Chinook, grass, passion fruit, Juicy Fruit, mixed berry, floral, resin and a lingering pepper taste on my lips. (Taste - 4.00)

Medium body. Creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Dry, spicy finish. (Feel - 3.75)

This was a really good IPA overall. That spice on my lips would not go away though. Would have it again though for sure. (Overall - 3.75)

This is delicious.

First off, the most intense pillowy head I may have ever witnessed.

Aromas are citrusy but subdued.

Flavors are on point with floral and citrus being in the forefront. Nothing extreme but extremely crisp and quenching.

Feel is dry and attenuated. Thinner and very easily drank.

Overall. Great ipa. Thanks @buddybeerdrinker1
