On tap at the Better Weather Fest at Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a slightly murky orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with a slight onion flavor on the finish. There is a medium herbal hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

3.66/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Look: Orangish yellow in color with a 1/4 inch tan head and good retention with great circular lacing

Smell: Piney and citrus hops rule the nose with a malty backbone

Taste: Very similar to the nose but I was hoping the hops would be a bit more bright and crisp. The hops are a bit hidden by the caramel backbone

Mouthfeel: A bit thicker than thin body with mild carbonation and a bit dry and bitter

Overall: Not a bad IPA a very solid drinkable beer but nothing to write home about
