I don't get the reviews on here. This beer isn't very good at all. This beer is heavy without any nice flavor. I don't get the fruity flavor only the alcohol. Do not recommend.

Canned 9/22/16 - Drinking 1/13/17 Almost 4 months old at thispoint . . . I normally wouldn't have purchased this ipa having been canned months ago but it was recommended to me by a trusted source at my local shop so I gave it a shot.
Really nice golden appearance with decent head and retention. Aromas are herbal, grassy and the malts have taken over the nose. Flavors are earthy, floral, herbal, honey and citrus. Malts have taken over the taste as well. Feel is medium bodied, crisp and clean. Overall I think 2-3 months ago tbis,was drinking very nicely. I'm not dissapointed with this considering the age of the beer. I'll have to look for a fresher can for sure. Recommended ipa from me. Perhaps if I had a fresh can I think this would be a solid
4.0-4.25 ipa

Look- A clear yellow and orange mix that you can clearly see through with a white head to the top of it.

Smell- Mostly mango and there is some pine. Overall this is a nice blend in my nose.

Taste- Very similar with the smell when talking about the pine and there is also a wide variety of fruits detected here.

Feel- The alcohol certainly does leave a kick in my mouth but it is an enjoyable feeling.

Overall- A little too fruity for my taste buds, at the end of the day this is an alright beer.

Beer pours a clear golden color with a slight head. Hop aroma comes off with a floral scent. At first you get the upfront bitterness with a crisp carbonation. Then after the bitterness settles away you taste a blend of malt with a hint of spiced rye. The finish leaves you with a subtle bitterness that dissipates.

I've always been a fan of the West-Coast for its IPA's and this one definitely falls in that category. Enjoyable and easy to drink with hop bitterness. I recommend it to those fellow IPA seekers!

On tap at the Pub at Golden Road (Atwater Village), poured in a flight glass. Clear, deep but pale gold with a good cap of white foam and gentle layer of intricate lace. Visibly carbonated. Resinous hop aroma with hints of citrus and slight dank. Multigrain bread underpins a light, malty body with spicy, herbal, earthy hops. Light to medium body with good carbonation. Surprisingly light for a DIPA, especially given its ABV. Easy and drinkable without much excitement.

12/27/16. Candlewyke

Pours yellow orange with minimal head and very little retention. Looks ok

The smell is sort of nondescript. Not much hops and has a sort of grainy smell. It really isn't bad but it really isn't much of anything.

The taste is a little bit different Doran IPA. Kind of dank with more bitter hoppiness than fruit. Actually almost all bitters but it's not too overdone. It does fit well and it's drinkable but not something I can see myself reaching for.

Overall, an ok beer. Kind of beer that doesn't leave much of an impression.
