Draft at Apex. Medium golden, kind of hazy. Small soft, creamy head. Aroma is soft hoop scents, taste erupts with big strong hoppy flavors, dry and tangy. Super well balanced.

Quite pithy and piney, with contrasting floral notes that provide balance. A classic west coast IPA enjoyed on draft. Glad I had the chance to try this.

In my amateur opinion, this is the IPA all other IPA’s should strive to be. I make it a point to buy this when I visit the brew pub so that I have it at home. I prefer it to Pliny the Elder and Pliny the Younger, easily my favorite beer.

It pours like a good golden hued IPA, it’s hop forward and smooth as hell. This one doesn’t disappoint.

This is a very nice IPA, with lots of character and of an insanely floral aroma and flavor profile. It pours amber with about a finger of foam. The aroma is floral with some mild notes of some unripe apple and pear. The taste is well balanced and features yet more flower notes in the aftertaste. Medium body and decent carbonation. A very nice example of this style.

On draft at Slow Hand BBQ in Pleasant Hill, pours clear gold with a small head. Aroma is mildly pleasant pine, floral and hops. Hoppy flavor is bigger than the aroma suggests. Solid light-medium, smooth feel. Overall a great IPA that I'd probably drink more of if it was more readily available.
