There's an explosion of tropical, citrus flavor smells upon opening. However, the flavor is less intense with the addition of an underlying dankness and some resin added. Has a thick resiny mouthfeel and sticky lacing on the glass.

Tastes like a session/fractal IPA. But after finishing a couple, you realize it isn't. Take that for what you may; for me, very good not great

Great floral smell on this one. Definitely expecting for the taste to match up, but it just doesn't. Flavor is a bit dull and tastes watered down. This is a good IPA but nothing to go running to the store in search of.

(draft, Drake's Brewery, San Leandro) pretty solid IPA (citrusy) but bitterness lingers a bit too much for me. Will give it another spin down the line.

Aroma Paloma (favorable)

2015 Bottle (bottled on 8/5 - so 10 days ago)

Pretty clear, light orange with thin head that dissipates kind of quickly

Smells like mild pine and citrus with a sweet undertone. Definitely not in an aroma coma.

More of a balanced IPA with plenty of malt, some bitterness and some pine/citrus coming through. Tastes kind of smokey on the back end.

Thiner body than I would expect with moderately low carbonation.

OK IPA
