3.99/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

I've had this bottle for a while now, so I am curious to see how it's held up. I haven't been the biggest fan of other BL ipa's, but still excited to try this one.
L: Pours a honey gold in color. Clear looking but not perfectly transparent. Even from a simple pour a whopping 3 fingers of head formed. The head is dense, consisting of tightly packed bubble and displayed nice retention. As it settles, soapy lacing clings to the wall of the glass. Look-wise I am enticed.
S: Tons of citrus on the nose. Malt backbone is pronounced as well. Slight herbal with a touch of pine.
T: Citrus on the start of the flavor, then is transcends to a sweeter malt flavor, with a grassy/lemony hoppy finish. After taste is lingering malt/crackery sweetness with citrus and mild piney flavor. Slight acidic astringency to the flavor profile that I can't quite put a finger on, but it is in no way ruining the beer.
F: Light to medium in body and weight. Carbonation is moderate for the style. It is refreshing but doesn't have a crisp finish as in the case with some WCIPAs.
O: I think it is an enjoyable offering. I appreciate the fact that it is 6.5%. This is probably my favorite of the BL IPAs that I've tried or at least come to mind. I am glad to have tried. Cheers!

Very delicious, light, crisp, fruit-forward IPA that surprised me by how underrated it was. Nice clean golden color with a little lingering white head and spotty lacing. Smells of nice fruity and piney hops, a little caramel and herbal hops as well. Tastes of lots of citrus zest hops - grapefruit, mango, pineapple, orange, lemon, tangerine - as well as some weaker herbal and piney hops, malt, caramel and biscuit. Very clean, crisp, slightly dry mouthfeel with good carbonation. I was really impressed by how clean and refreshing the aftertaste was, with minimal lingering bitterness. Will try more from this brewery - really a great sessionable IPA!

I find this beer to be pretty good. Pretty much a straight up West Coast IPA like a Kelly Kepowski holding a pompon. Smooth, hoppy, and bitter like my baby mama grandma because I still won’t propose.

Pours a nice, hazy golden color with a soapy tan head. Nice, dank citrus on the nose, with tangerines most prominent. There’s also a noticeable malt component

The tangerines are also upfront on the taste, and the malt is also notable. Just a really nice, old school West Coast IPA.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a tulip glass.

Pours a light brown lightly hazy body with a white head. Doesn't look too much like the typical IPA but lets see.

Aromas are malty and sweet with some muted old stale hops in there, floral and a little soapy. Taste is piney, a little resinous, old hops, lightly bitter but a bit watered down sitting on a simple malt backbone, lightly sweet. Not much going on here. Mouthfeel is watery and medium carbonation.

This beer was a bit of a let down, especially since I got 6 bombers to qualify for a bottle of Jam the Radar. It tasted like a mediocre homebrew. Bottle logic kills it with stouts but not quite this one.

Pours amber/gold. Aromas of dark stonefruit, berry, sweet malt. Alot follows in flavor with the malt body a little more prominent. Mouthfeel is clean and not overly dry. Drinkable, forgetable.

I loved this fruity and slightly floral IPA, but it might not be for hop heads.

Look: semi-clear amber with a thin white head

Aroma: tropical fruit, especially tangerine, floral and some pine resin

Taste: It is a very fruity IPA, sweet malts, lots of tangerine, a bit floral, grapefruit, pineapple, some lingering pine resin, not too bitter.

Body: light to medium body.
