Draft. Golden-orange, perfectly clear. One finger of frothy white has good staying power. Smooth, citrusy nose: orange peel; honey; a touch of grapefruit. Good flavor balance. Mild orange peel mixes with sharper floral notes, then gives way to a smooth, balanced finish with crackers, mild sweetness and bitterness. Medium-light body, mild massaging CO2. No alcohol. Great balance, the sweetness is just right and the hop flavor is pleasant. A nice, solid IPA.

Ok, but not very hoppy in my opinion. Not the best IPA I’ve had. Tried at the 21st Amendment pub in SF.

Transfer from BA review on 4-30-13- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer was served a medium amber color with a tiny white head that fades fast to leave only a trace level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The smell was citrusy and sweet with aromas of a sweet tangerine and orange mixed with some smells of caramel. Along with these sweeter smells were aromas of a bitter grapefruit as well as a bit of a bready malt aroma. Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter flavor of caramel and sweet citrus of a tangerine and orange nature. Upfront there is a moderate amount of a grapefruit hop taste which gets stronger as the flavor advances further. Along with the hop ,so too comes more flavors of a bready nature, but these are always much lighter and less detectable then the citrus hop. At the very end a lighter amount of a pine hop flavor also joins the profile giving the brew a lightly sweetened, but decently hoppy flavor . Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather average in thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average as well. Both make for a very easy drinking brew, but also allow for the hop flavors to be picked up nicely by the tongue. Overall – It was a good IPA, but nothing exceptional. Worth a try, but not really worth going out of your way for.

Draft @ 21 A brew pub. Lightly hazy yellow with lasting head retention. The nose is grapefruit citrus and touches of floral hops. Body is light and refreshing with almost no bitterness for the 65 IBU. Real clean finish, pretty easy to drain a pint.

Homer321 (2839) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Draft at 21A in SF. Nose is mostly hoppy with very fruity notes. Some soft bread too. Pour is very clear, deep golden yellow. Taste is bitter but short of pith. A fruitiness with some earthy dirt combo going on. Dry almost astringent finish.

On tap @ the brewery during San Francisco 7/7/14 beer tour. Pours a hazy golden appearance with an off white head. Mango, papaya, tropical fruity hoppy aroma. Pretty high bitterness but not overwhelming. Distinct tropical fruity hops in the flavor. Low to moderate sweetness. Pretty quenching.

On tap at the brewery. Pours copper with an off-white head. Aroma of floral and lightly resinous hops, some pale and caramel malts, and dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not as good of an IPA as their Homefront IPA in my opinion.
