Date Bottled 3/25/15.

Pours a hazy golden-orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of citrus zest, grapefruit juice, and earth aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus fruit, citrus zest, and grapefruit juice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with nice citrus forward hop characteristics that make this one tasty and easy to drink.

Serving type: bottle.

Nice thick orange color with a nice fluffy white head poured into a snifter glass..faint hoppy smell and light hints of grapefruit. The swig was a lot lighter than I expected for 7.5 with mild carbonation. Didn't overwhelm my palette with anything particular just a solid beer I'd have again but not necessarily seek out..gulp gulp

Rather salty. Moderate bitterness. Pleasant floral aroma. Dark golden color with a handsome cap of foam in the New Belgium snifter.

This is one of those pleasant aromatic IPAs that aren't so terminally bitter. Finish is dry and minerally. Less sweet than most IPAs. Light body and surprisingly drinkable.

A very pleasant quaff with a moderate bitter finish. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Mega Liquor in Hemet, Calif.

Type: 12-oz. can
Glass: Modern Times willybecher pint glass
From: Barons Market in Alpine, Calif.
Price: $8.99 for a 6-pack
Purchased: Sept. 8, 2016
Consumed: Sept. 8, 2016
Reviewed as: American IPA
Misc.: Canned on Aug. 19, 2016

Had been wanting to pull the trigger on this ever since buying their Tripel on Aug. 14. Finally got it for a nice value of $8.99 for a 6-pack. Not quite the value of the Tripel at $7.99 but really liked that one so I deemed it worth a shot.

Poured a copper amber clear color with four fingers of off-white, rocky head. A few bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Very good spotty lacing. Very good retention. (Sight - 4.00)

Smelled a nice mix of citrus, tropical and hops initially. Specifically got Citra, mandarin, orange, hints of grapefruit, caramel malts, honey and sugary citrus zest. Not as much tropical as it went down, maybe some melon or honeydew melon. (Smell - 3.50)

Initial taste reminded me of an IPA from 2011 or so. Also didn’t seem that fresh, even though it reads canned on Aug. 19, 2016 (20 days ago). Got mandarin, bitter orange peel, melon, hints of Galaxy, nectarine, Citra, a touch of red grapefruit and I think even some Mosaic. Kind of grew on me slightly (Taste - 3.75)

Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter finish. (Feel - 3.50)

This was kind of hit and miss for me. Still have five more to change my mind though. (Overall - 3.75)

Clear, very light gold/copper on the pour, finger of an eggshell coloured head. Soft carbonation.

Earthy on the nose with floral hops cutting through, slightly grainy. Hop bitterness on the tongue, mellowed out nicely by the malt precense. A little bit bready and toasty. Slightly citrusy and tropical, actually very well balanced. Seems sort of experimental, but I actually enjoyed this one. Soft and light. Good to see the local Temecula brewery scene growing and a good first go at this newer brewery.

Clear gold with a slightly soapy off-white head.
Hints of grapefruit, caramel, melon on the nose and palate.
Well carbonated. Lightly oily mouthfeel with a slightly bitter, crisp finish.
This one won't get the checkered flag, but can always stay in the race.

Great smell. Look is sort of like a darker Budweiser. Taste is really good initially but there is this oily creamy texture that just makes the beer taste stale and old
