On tap at the brewery. Flashback to Tired Hands as they'll only pour me two tasters.

A: Straw colored with some bright white persistent head.

S: Dank with a bit of floral/piney fresh hops

T: Hop character follows the nose but is supported by a nice grainy pale malt with a firm moderate bitterness that melds well with the rest. Moderately long finish.

O: Solid thought unexceptional WC IPA.

Nelson hop showcase. Super classic for the hop style- a little tropical fruit with a nice Nelson zip. A little bit spicy.
Cloudy in look but not dense. On tap at the Toronado in San Diego.

Taster: Fresh floral, honey and citrus notes. Light on the malt, which suits my preference. The finish ends a little short with some bitter citrus. Great carb and mouthfeel. Overall very enjoyable beer.
