Pours orange in color with 1 inch white head.

Aroma yields lemon citrus, tropical fruits, grapefruit. Tons of excellent citrus notes -- my type of aroma.

Taste follows the nose. Big bitter grapefruit, tropical fruits, herbaceous quality, slight medicinal finish. Bitterness lingers. Reminds me of a stone beer that is a little more rounded out. My only complaint is the mouthfeel. It is slightly under carbonated for my taste. Classic west coast IPA.

Overall this beer is very good. I enjoyed it and will definitely drink it again. I can see it pairing well with Korean BBQ tacos. It gets a 93/100.

Big grassy hop nose, pours brilliant gold under a 1” off white foam cap that persists and clings, Creamy, spicy with some fruit, on the palate with hop bitterness balancing the fruit. Medium high carbonation, medium body. A world class old standby.

Clear amber colored ale with a medium sized white colored head.

Smells strongly of citrus. Smells mostly of grapefruit. Some pine board scent. Faint cinnamon and sandalwood.

Starts out mild with a lot of caramel taste. Slight pine board taste. Citrus taste and mild bitterness, this isn't a hop head IPA.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall an easy drinking IPA that won't whip your tongue in to submission.
