My third beer from here, hoping to improve. Smells of nice citrus hops. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange. Surprisingly good bitter hops with citrus. Bitterness resonates, but the transition to finish from citrus bitter is not a smooth one that also brings a floral hop. Maybe far back end of tounge was not prepped well. Overall not a bad beer.

The Eastside west coast IPA from Excel is decent. It poured a nice copper clear with fizzy thick white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent is gentle with pine and citrus. The taste is surprisingly easy to drink and well balanced. There is definite sweet malt to counter the bitter hops leaving enough pine and citrus to make it good. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it is good.

12/23....pours hazy dirty gold, good thick 1/4 inch head of white packed foam. Nose of straw, hay, grains, but very light. Taste is an open citrus bitter, builds to a biscuit bread pine malt and then a fast finish. Some bitter at the end. Floral and lemony. Nice.

Globe; bottled in Dec. 2016.

Not a bad IPA, but nothing that stands out about it.

Pours a clear, copper color. 3/4 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of citrus hops, slight floral hops, slight sweet malt, and slight pale malt. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. The bitterness is quite strong. Tastes of citrus hops, floral hops, slight sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, and a hint of spice. Overall, good appearance, decent aroma, and decent body, but nothing extraordinary.
