On tap at El Segundo Brewing Company in El Segundo, CA.

Pours a clear dark orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Thin rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and alcohol. Taste is much the same with honey and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some nice citrus forward aromas and flavors.

22oz. bottle for $6.99

Look: Clear dark amber gold with thick vanilla head. Nice lacing as it goes down and lots of legs keeping the head nice a full.

Smell: Sweet citrus hits the nose with a surprisingly big sweet malt back bone. Getting pineapple, sour apple, lime, honey, white grapes, all wrapped up in a nice malty package

Taste: Bitter hop punch at first. Then honey covered lime which fades into more tart lime and lemon, pine, grapefruit, and more resiny pine. A sweet malt backbone brings up the rear but does nothing to had that piney bitterness that hit first.

Mouthfeel: Light on the tongue at first but the hops give it a sticky resin that fills out the body to a more medium body type.

Overall: The nose on this was quite nice. The taste on the other hand lost me a bit as the bitterness wrecked and nuances that nose had. Would love to see the bitterness tamed and more of that lime/sour apple meld with the pine! With all that being said this is just a good west coast IPA in a market filled to the brim with great ones.

22 ounce bomber poured into a Sierra Nevada Hop Tulip glass

A: Pretty clear, orange amber color, white head, not much lacing.

A: A slight tropical hop aroma, no alcohol on the nose, a decent smell.

T: Bitter, not getting much tropical citrus flavors, not much on the flavor. Bitterness lingers.

M: Juicy mouthfeel, medium does not finish dry.

O: I was expecting more than what I got, a basic IPA, nothing outstanding but does not disappoint. Probably would not buy again. Not my type of IPA.
