A: moderately hazy; deep gold in color; 1+ finger ivory head that receded to a splotchy cap; very little lacing;

S: pine and citrus;

T: a hodgepodge of flavors that don't come through as anything coherent; pronounced bitterness toward the end - a little harsh;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; dry finish;

O: the flavor was not all that pleasant;

Draft at LAX.

Basically no head.
My sense of smelling is bad.
More dense appearance than I prefer.
My way to determine overall rating is, “Would I have I have a 2nd one right now?” and, “In another new place would I have it again?” Answers are “yes.”

Appearance: orange with a 1" head that produces some mild lacing.

Smell; very light citrus aroma.

Taste: caramel, grapefruit, pineapple, some mild pine, and a late biting bitterness.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Crisp to start, less crisp and slightly dry at the finish.

Overall: middle of the road IPA that comes across a bit unbalanced for me.

Had canned version. Drinkable session like despite almost 6% ABV. Would drink again/not turn down as summer beer. Unfortunately there are so many other IPAs in same class, and probably won't circle back. Still a decent beer.

12 oz can poured into pint glass

L - Pours a hazy orange color with a white, foamy head that dissipates down to an inch and leaves a good lacing.

S - Citrus, pine, orange zest, not the strongest nose to it.

T - Bitter rind, slight lemon citrus, piney, slightly sweet honey, a strong hoppy bite at the end.

F - Very drinkable, sessionable IPA with an astringent carbonation. Light, crisp, slightly dry finish.

O - A solid, drinkable west coast IPA worth the price. Just about what you can expect from a balanced brew.
