Pours a light amber color clear with a fluffy off white head that laces well.

Aroma is nice west coast style, tangerine, orange, pink grapefruit, pine on touches of caramel base.

Taste is like the nose good citrus fruits with nice grapefruit rind and pine resin bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium with medium level carbonation, nice dry finish.

Overall a solid west coast style IPA.

Very good beer, similar to Racer 5 by Bear Republic and Union Jack by Firestone Walker. Light amber pour, floral smell.

12 ounce can. Traditional California style, sharp pine notes with a touch of bitterness at the end. It is smooth and a deceptive seven percent. Recommend highly.

12 oz can canned in October 2017.

Lightly hazed amber colored body topped by a large, creamy white head. Very good retention with a foamy film of lacing left on the glass.

Aroma: Smells of tropical fruits including oranges, grapefruit, and a bit of pineapple.

Flavor: follows the aroma but negligible dankness, more complexity, bready malts, and hints of honey. Some pine and grapefruit in the finish. Moderately bitter for style but leans towards bold for style overall.

Feel: medium-full body; medium carbonation; Semi-dry finish.

Overall: a high quality West Coast IPA.
