Orange-like citrus, juicy grapefruit, lime, and a subtle presence of melon sets the aromatic backdrop for this brew. In typically West Coast fashion, the hefty C-hop foundation is accentuated by the more tropical flavors of passion fruit, papaya, and a slight bit of mango. Hints of a floral character surface toward the back end alongside some malty notes of biscuit and grains.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The palate is probably where this becomes more decidedly LA than anything else; where West Coast IPAs of yore used to captivate imaginations with gargantuan and bold bitter flavors, Hello, LA takes a step back to "chill" and opts for a more balanced approach.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The nose is well-matched on the palate with generous servings of citrus, grapefruit peels, and melon taking center stage. The tropical fruits make a brief cameo before making way for a resinous, dry pine punch -- not quite dank, but there's just enough bitterness to make you want to take a step back and just kick it for a bit.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The mouthfeel starts off a little creamy, but gives way to an almost Pale Ale-like medium body with gentle, simmering carbonation. I'd dare say this is quite perfect for the often-unforgiving but perpetually bright and sunny Los Angeles weather.

Another great IPA from these guys. I prefer this one over the Neon and Bonkers IPA.
An excellent balance between the Citra & Mosaic hops without two much malt. Hop forward, yet easy drinking, with a dry and crisp finish.
