On tap, pours a clear light gold. A finger of white foam leaves spotty lacing. A very well-made West Coast IPA. Great combination of citrus and pine, with a pleasant bitterness in the finish. Super stuff.

Appearance: Arrives with a slightly hazy golden color and a frothy head; decent lacing action

Smell: Berries, melon and white wine grape tones with a slightly floral aspect

Taste: Berry and melon tones forward, with the white wine grape building; pithy with moderate bitterness, through the middle and a dry finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Not knowing the hop bill before I ordered the draft I was initially surprised but then I remembered my old friend Nelson

Had on-tap at Cross Street Chicken and Beer in San Diego. Poured into a pint glass.

L: Clear light golden pour. 1.5 fingers of fluffy white head. Nice sticky lacing.

S: Floral and tropical hops. Light pine.

T/F: Crackery malts.... light bodied brew with a nice complex and bitter hop profile. Floral... light tropical fruits and grapefruit. Well balanced.

O: A delicious West Coast IPA... great flavor and super drinkable. 1st day in San Diego and already feel like I'm drinking like a local.
