Clear pale yellow with a huge frothy white head leaving behind creamy lace.

Smell is grassy weed, pine and cornbread.

Taste is brighter lemon, orange, grapefruit, pine, weed and light caramel, with a crisp, sharp froth, round body and semi-dry finish.

this was tasted from the can in a sampler glass chilled.
The color is golden with slight haze and thin white head with small bead.
The smell is very citrus oriented with a grapefruit tropical scent and subtle malt sweetness in the aroma.
The feel is excellent with moderately high bitterness and light astringency with low alcohol in the feel and moderate carbonation with a mostly dry finish.

The taste is great - lots of citra hops with a tasty citrus and grapefruit-like flavor with a mild malt backing that prevents from feeling like a palate destroyer. the alcohol is there but mild in the taste. I found this to be a very pleasant and hop forward ale which is a good example of the style. I would say it is not the best I have tasted but a solid IPA worth trying.

Poured a golden amber color with a small, off-white head of foam. It smelled of pine, grapefruit and citrus. Nice toasted caramel sweetness with a piney bite. Some citrusy sweetness, too.

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.
