On-tap at Alvarado Street Brewery, Monterey, CA

A: The beer is hazy light yellow in color. It poured with a thin bright white head that died down, leaving a collar around the edge and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of grapefruit and lemony hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste is a near mirror image of the smell. It starts off with some flavors of lemony hops and finishes with grapefruit. There is a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA is easy to drink yet quite flavorful. It isn't overly bitter.

Serving type: on-tap

Growler to glass.
Look: Hazy yellow and frothy head.
Smell: Tropical heaven.
Taste: Tropical and dank.
Feel: Low carbonation, smooth, creamy, and just the right amount of bitterness.
Overall: Solid. Almost like a NE IPA, but still got the dankness of west coast IPA. So easy to drink and perfect for this 90 degree weather. Straight refreshing!
