Gold with white foam.

Citric, malty.

Musty, grapefruit sorta. Another beer that says west coast IPAs are not for me. Fresh, though, bottle date of 2 days ago.

Dry.

On tap at Beachwood in Long Beach, CA.

A fair amount of juice, but a very dry aftertaste like chewing on sawdust in the wind - and I don't know about you, but Raul really isn't into that. Overall taste is citrusy and fairly pleasant; but that Sahara desert aftertaste... No, no, no.

I didnt really care for this. Mostly bitter, dry, and just not a lot of other flavors. Lacked malt balance.

12oz bottle into a tulip appears a clear copper color with off-white cap a finger strong that fades leaving patchy lace.

Aroma is fruity and herbal with hops slightly grassy and a bit vegetal.

Tastes bitter pith and pine with slight vegetal thing.

Medium in body with modest carbonation. Not bad

On tap at the brewpub. It was my favorite of at least 5 different IPAs that I sampled there, so I settled on it for a pint. It was all about hops, hops and more hops. Strong in pine and citrus and bright aromatic spices, fresh, with plenty of notes to think about. Generally well made, but the bitterness was just a bit too high for me. I prefer a more balanced brew.
