Slightly cloudy golden pour with a white head. Dank and resiny aroma. Taste follows the nose with a strong bitter flavor that was on the earthy side with pine standing out as well as a bit of spiciness. Leaves a long lasting bitterness on the tongue.

I don't know. This one came off more as a pilsner that was slightly hopped up with some earthy, slightly tropical notes. The pour was beautiful. Head retention was really solid, but not really up to form for an IPA.

Pours a golden yellow with an amazing white head that sticks around and leaves lots of lacing. Aromas and flavors are a unique blend of resin, sweet fruit, and spicy qualities. Overall a very good IPA but the smell outshines the taste slightly.

I've tried quite a good number of IPAs, including several from ES Brewing - this one I would rate lower than Mayberry or some of the other offerings from El Segundo. There's little aroma to speak of, and the flavor is not overly interesting. There's just not enough variety in the taste profile for me. It's very drinkable, with about the right amount of bitterness, just not something I'd seek out among the many outstanding choices out there. Cheers!
