MANY thanks to TasterMike for this one! 22 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a clear golden amber color. The head is a one finger white shade thatís relatively soapy, yet consistent and dense. Retention is quite solid, and so is the lacing left behind. S: Oh yeah, thatís the stuff. This brings the hops in a fantastic manner - it doesnít bring any significant biting pine notes, rather itís mostly stuff like melon, mango, and grapefruit. The bready malts come through enough...and I do mean íenoughí. Which is to say itís quite faint, but not nonexistent. T: Oh yeah, thatís the-- wait, I wrote that down already. Nevermind, this just works brilliantly. The first few sips have a decent malt backbone sandwiched by a fruity opening and a mildly bitter finish. Right after the swallow, itís very reminiscent of fruit juice. People who say that an IPA canít/shouldnít be balanced need to try this - the hop flavor, the bitterness, and the malt backbone are in perfect harmony with one another. If this uses crystal malt - and I think I can taste hints of its toffee qualities buried in here - I may have to drop my petty grudge towards it, because this beer is fantastic. M: I donít really notice the low carbonation or medium body too much - itís so dry (in all the right ways) that it still goes down with superb ease. Malt sweetness builds very slightly on the aftertaste, but itís not bothersome by any means. O: Holy frig, this is like Sculpin on steroids. Ergo, itís now in my top 5 list for IPAs. This is the kind of beer that makes me want to move to San Diego just so I can consume this like water.

Pours slightly hazy orange with white head and some lacing. Aroma of citrus, melon, grapefruit, and some pine. Very juicy taste too. A little boozy with enough malt to handle the hops.
