L: A slightly hazy gold pour filled with streams of rapidly rising bubbles builds a rocky cream to white foam cap with good retention

S: has a faint touch of sulfur, onion and garlic but as it calms down citrus, biscuit and bread crumb aromas with light grassy notes punch through

T: flavors start mildly sweet with juicy citrus, fruit, bread crumb and biscuit. A hint of onion and garlic pops up mid-palate along with a medium hop bitterness that coats the tongue. Tangerine emerges near the finish with some hop derived astringency that helps dry the beer out

F: a medium bodied beer with medium carbonation and mild warming

O: This flavorful, very drinkable Double IPA features hop flavors and bitterness and does it very well.

So, I really think this is my first review of a beer from LA, America's second largest cty What is up wth that? Get your act together, City of Angels! Pours pale gold with a solid inch of head. Nose is herbal and citrus hops.

Solid IPA flavor, although essentially one sided. I'm certain this beer contains malted barley, but I honestly can't taste any. Plenty of pine and medicinal hops. Not amazing, but delivers what is promised, which is most important. I would try this brewer again.

Appearance: pours a golden yellow color with a 1" head.

Smell: some citrus and pine come through to the nose.

Taste: grainy malt presence with lemon zest, grapefruit, grass, and a bit of pine. Some earthy bitterness rounds it out.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp to start, less crisp and a bit dry late.

Overall: a decent DIPA that is simple and straight forward.
