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

Looks hazy golden/orange with a lingering milky-textured, mostly white head.

Smells like tropical-dominated grainy malt and pine.

Strong tropical and pine flavors with medium hop bitterness and moderately high maltiness for an American IPA. Bitter grainy flavors stick around after sipping.

Medium body with moderately low carbonation.

This is a good IPA with a better smell.
