3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Tap And Handle. Dark orange and pretty clear appearance with a lacy off-white head. Aroma of pine, hop resin, light citrus, floral, herbal and spicy hop notes. Similar flavor, adding a medium to heavy hop bitterness and a light malt sweetness with hints of toasted grain. Medium body. Good overall.

Tap mad mex Oakland. I really could care less about ipa but they make a good tik. Hazy pale ale with a thin creamy head. Smell is rather attractive mild ipa perfume, no BO and I’m glad of that. First impression is big and rather mouth coating but on tap it comes across rather fresh. Goodly amount of CO2 in this one, makes it quite palatable compared to those flat rude nasty other ipas. Yes, very bitter from the start and it builds as the session continues. Finish is what else? Palate wrecked for an hour.

Pours two fingers of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is dank grapefruit.
The taste has a building citrus bitterness that finished with a solid pine bitter bite.
The texture is crisp.

Enjoyed this on tap at Krafty Draft-yum! Light fresh aroma, warm golden color, refreshing lightly hoppy taste, bitter citrus but perfectly balanced.

This is what a west coast IPA should be. Beautiful bouquet of citrus and dank resinous notes in the nose, clean drinking on the palate, full-bodied yet smooth and easy to drink. Delicious.

Une mousse relativement mince laisse toutefois une dentelle lascive lorsqu’elle disparaît de la bière dorée à peine voilée. Oranges sanguines, agrumes, céréales légèrement mielleuses, un aspect aromatique qui ne ment pas et qui promet. En bouche, c’est hyper fruité, un peu sucré et l’amertume est discrète. Une finale un peu épicée ajoute une complexité intéressante. Ma première bière de la brasserie à la réputation indéniable. J’ai hâte d’en goûter d’autres.

Bomber. Beautiful, just beautiful. Looks beautiful in the glass too,. A nice long lasting four finger head atop a lightly hazy golden body. Aroma of sweat, pine and mixed citrus. The taste exceeds expectations created by the visual and the nose. I get grapefruit, mango, melons limes and a trace of pine. Bitter, but not distractedly so, more fruity than bitter. The malt base is fairly neutral with a hint of toffee. Beautiful, just beautiful.

Small shaker showing well filtered light honey hues.
The nose shows moderately intense tropical fruit mixed with clean pine.
The palate is light bodied and well carbonated. A lot of juicy clean tropical fruit with hints of pine resin that is well balanced by the hop intensity. Once again barely any bitterness despite being an IPA.
