Bottle from richiesd. Light copper pour with a light tan head that fades to a nice film and semi-thick ring around the edge of the glass. Fresh floral hops, some mandarin orange, nectarine, apricot, well balanced malt presence with some biscuit and caramel. Moderate carbonation and strong body, creamy mouthfeel with a nice bitterness that grows but doesn’t overwhelm, leaves a nice citrus and semi-resin taste on the palate. Really liked this.

Wish list cross off at Toronado SD did NOT disappoint. Stood toe to toe (at least) with Blind Pig and lives to tell the tale. Huge dank tropical fruity hops in the nose and flavor. Light spice.Just loved every sip. Nothing else I can say... 4/13 Fresh bottle practically exploding with a wonderful vibrant fruity aroma and flavor without high abv while maintaining balance. One the best IPAs I’ve ever had. Aroma REALLY close to a 10."

On tap at Flavor in Half Moon Bay, CA. Pours a straw gold. Aroma is grass, hay, spruce. Taste is grassy hops, earth, mild bitterness. Like a Pilsner meets an IPA. Very unique and nice!

hombrepalo (1831) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Obtained by trade. Pours a clear golden, light copper color with minimal head. Aroma of floral hops, spruce and some grass. Flavor of strong floral hops, spruce, grass, biscuity malts, exotic fruitiness, caramel and some herbal notes. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and good carbonation. Finishes very bitter, floral, herbal and light sweet. Very well balanced.
