Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow orange with medium frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong floral and pine hop. Thin mouthfeel with light bitter pine hop and nice light bitter finish. Very impressive.

Ontape (275) - Valley Village, California, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Bottle from a box labeled 1/27, so potentially a 3 day old beer. And man does it taste like it! A very interesting and delicious IPA, West Coast flair but very smooth. Not so much hop bitterness as real hop flavor, the Amarillo and Simcoe are showcased right up front -- lovely. Citrus and caramel sweetness but not at all cloying. Distinguished and memorable. Grab it if you see it, I think many who don’t typically love West Coast IPAs would still enjoy this one.

Bottle share at Hampton Inn pre-DLD party. Pour is golden with a small off-white head. Aroma and flavor are both of fresh pine needles, grapefruit, citrus zest, and caramel. Some sweet mandarin oranges on the finish.

22oz bomber shared by Levi. Wow. Nails it. Lemony straw hops meet Simcoe tropical. Great IPA, hyper drinkable for 7%.

Thanks to jbtice0315 for this as an extra! Poured to a NB globe. A: Pours a lovely golden ale with excellent clarity and a 1-2 finger head of fine white bubbling. This dissipate to leave a moderate sheet of the same. Lacing is insane for this beer. S: This is an IPA?!?! The nose is super sweet. The malt owns the beer. Othewise, the hops add citrus, resin, lightly floral hints. The nose is so beautiful. T: Lightly bittered, again malty. the beer has an almost... coconut rum flavor. Plenty of vanilla tones, wood tones. This is exceptional. Goddamn beautiful. M: Medium with spritely carbonation. Leaves the mouth not slick, but salivating. D: I am not sure I can get enough of this beer. It is absolutely delicious. Not a typical West Coast by any means - too sweet. However, you should try this. Serving type: bottle 02-20-2011

22oz bottle poured into tulip at #bottlecherwednesdays with Vito at Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach. Crazy tall off-white head head, on a clear golden beer. Aroma is as advertised: grapefruit, mango, pineapple goodness from the hops plus a little caramel malt hint. Taste is in line with the smell with some earthy tones and nice bready underpinnings. High carbonation, medium bodied, thin texture, dry bitter finish.

THis has long been one of my two favorite brews (Alpine Nelson being the other). This fine beer has a strong floral aroma that reveals the two hops giving it it’s name.It has a nice body, firm but not chunky. It has a clean though not quite dry finish. I strongly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a robust IPA.
