Pours a finger and half of head on a clear medium straw colored body.
The aroma is a rich, sappy pine smell. Nice and bold.
The taste is excellently balanced, moderate to strong pine and lemon bitterness. Good malt profile.
The texture is crisp, medium body.
An excellent IPA.

I do not believe there is an IPA as low as 7.1% ABV that is as good as this one! Had it on tap at the Fall River hotel. I cannot disagree with any reviews so far. Excellent balance, wonderful long-lasting aroma. Possibly it is the terrain in the area that made me like it so much, but others like it elsewhere in a bottle. Later in Burney I had a Fall River IPA on tap that was lower ABV but just as good, which is not listed yet on BA.

My personal favorite brew from Fall River and beer of choice whenever it's on offer. Love the citra hops, a truly great, bold yet balanced IPA. Highly recommended, do not miss this one!

This is a great beer. Got a bomber in a trade, and was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. Dank hop profile and smooth as can be. If I lived in CA I'd drink this stuff regularly. Well done!

Copper color pour, mostly white 1/2" head on the top, good clarity. Aroma didn't smack of anything exotic or proprietary hop wise, there seems to be a solid medley going on, but not of the new aromatic type of hops. You got the usual C hop citrus grapefruit notes and a mild amount of tropical notes.

Same with the taste, good levity, not overly done caramel and crystal malts. Some treeness to the hops too. This is like an old school ipa without the push to get to 100 ibu or heavy crystal malts. Does carbonation well, and a relatively dry body. Bomber format I could do without, but worth checking out I would say. If this was in a 12oz format 4/6 pack, it would raise the score slightly.

Excellent IPA poured in pint glass from bomber. Nice quarter inch head IPA pour pretty clear. Smelled of floral hops and citrus. Taste was delish. Nice balance that pulled some of the bitterness away with the finish. Medium, smooth and earthly with nice hoppy afterglow. Yum!
