Smells nice, if a bit catty (simcoe?) but really doesn't taste very good. Tongue scraper.

Growler pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, onion, garlic, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with earthy, herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but the hop profile in this one is very earthy and slightly vegetal.

Over all it was good. Slightly sweet And hoppy upfront and dry finish. Had it on tap. Don't think I would by it again though.

Copper pour at the brewplace itself. 1" white head. Aroma was a medley of Columbus, Citra and Magnum. I'd say the Columbus dominated that. Citra wasn't huge.

Sparingly used pale malts stay in the background providing a neutral backdrop for all the hops. Its a good beer, but don't go expecting it to be a Citra hop bomb. It leans on the other hops to provide bitterness and flavor moreso. Good dry mouthfeel, well carbonated.

Massively hopped on the nose and palate. Dank, funky and bitter. Heavy on the spicy, herbaceous style of hops. Very much not on the floral, citrus end of the spectrum. Good, well-made beer, of course, and a local favorite.

My tastes lately have leaned toward the brighter style of IPA, lower in IBUs and more aromatic on the dry hops. So, this isn't my personal fave.
