On Tap. Poured clear gold with a razor thin head. Turned out to be a great IPA. Definitely a west coast feel, with a much less bitter finish than the Sculpin (not a fan, sorry). Well done Indie! Enjoy with confidence folks.

Severely under rated IMHO simply because it hews closer to the west coast model of a few years ago - nectarine and citrus pith, a solid malt base, lingering IBUs, a crisper finish and feel instead of hazy pillows. A sculpin type set up.

Pours an unfiltered golden color.

Smells of sweet peach and orange blossom

Tastes of bright citrus, juicy fruit, tangerine.

Silky smooth texture, really enjoyable.

Tried at a brewpub eve of March 12, 2018.
Slightly more amber color than typical West Coast IPA. AMAZING scent wafts out of the glass. Quite hoppy as is typical of California IPA's, but super well balanced with tropical fruit notes and tangerine. Best new IPA I've tried in years. Like this as well as Coronado Islander and Ballast Point Sculpin.

16oz can with no visible dating. Opened 5-23-20.
2 finger white head with good retention, sits at 1/4".
Golden IPA with a slight chill haze to start.
Patchy stark white lacing clings to the glass throughout.
Orange. mango, peach, and hint of melon.
No malt aromas perceptible by this nose but at the same time this isn't overwhelming on the hop side, so conclusion is it's there.
Zesty grapefruit, orange, and ripe melon flavors, very tasty and keeps me interested.
Bright entry light to medium body with a clean mouthfeel. Light bitterness. Quick and dry finish.
Clean West Coast IPA.
Very Good.
