Not at all a bad beer, but this contributes little to the already rich fabric of California IPA. It is quite obvious to me, after now drinking age eat number offers from these guys, that they do their best work in wild ales, and that while well enough made, their non wild beers are much less compelling. Cloudy orange and heady from the tap here, with a nose of Citra hops, tangerine, and vegetal bitterness. The beer is obviously very fresh. Some other tropical fruit notes in the flavor on top of fresh malted barley, maybe some pineapple juice, but more of a medley than anything specific. I suspect Citra hops and a bold dry hopping, but there are likely others as well. Notes of bitter orange on the finish, on the dry side but lingering hop flavor and bitterness is there on the tongue a minute after the swallow. Fluffy feeling, more body than many of its peers, good but short of great. I like these guys a lot and will always be interested in new ones the come up with, but the wild beers they do are far superior to this and the other non wilds I have had from Sante.

I tried this on tap at Sante Adairus Rustic Ales served in a cervoise chilled.

The color is amber with light haze and thick white head with good retention. The aroma is fresh and dank herbal hops with light citrus quality and spice-like scent. The feel is moderately high in bitterness with moderate carbonation and low sweetness with a dry yet lingering bitter finish.

The taste has a citrus/spice dichotomy with a nice herbal hop flavor which is somewhat piney in the back with a low malt influence in the taste. The citrus of grapefruit -like taste continues into a long finish with slight astringent element and dry quality with mild alcohol as it ends. This is a high quality west coast style IPA solid in every way -forcefully bitter yet full of hop flavor will satisfy the hop head based on the intensity of hops that refuse to go quietly

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.

Aroma wasn't really there... Taste definitely was though.
