Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a nice off-white head on top. Aroma is full of hops with hints of pine and citrus. Flavor is full of hops at initial sip. Notes of citrus, fruit, and pine hit the tongue and give it a nice lashing. Malts come in to balance out the deal with nice sweetness at the end. A medium bodied beer that is smooth and very enjoyable. By far one of the best IPAs around.

Finally! Took 2 seperate trips to southern California to find this elusive brew (not that I minded "having" to go back). Hazy orange/copper pour with a modest but sturdy off-white head and good lacing. Typically floral/fuity/piney hop aroma for a top tier west coast IPA with consistant flavors. A touch of brown sugar, peaches and plenty of malt sweetness in the flavors as well. Rich mouthfeel and a brisk bitter finish with hints of vanilla at the end. A great IPA from a region seemingly crowded with fantastic offerings.

22oz bomber. Murky orange to copper color with very thin white head. Rich sweet caramel malty aroma with some light pine hops. Taste as it smells. Caramel malts, some earthiness, some wet hops and pine hop bitterness. Maybe what I’m tasting is hop flavor since the bitterness is on the light side.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to Odeed for the great bonus brew. Hazy golden orange color with large white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is mixture of citrus and floral hops. Flavor is citrusy with a minty pine kick. Could have been a bit fuller bodied and the alcohol presence is a little much.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Murky orange with a dirty white head that lasts forever. Good lacing all the way down the glass. Aroma is citrus orange and lemon with tons of floral notes. Well hopped and floral tasting. Flavor is dominated by herbal notes, but the citrus is noticable. Bitter dry malty finish. Lots of hop character.
