Thinnish, but not too shabby. Surprisingly hoppy, with noticeable notes of grass, spices and rind. Bitterness was a bit too stark for the malts, but it was pleasantly peppery.

On tap, Baja Brewing. Definitely Baja Brewing’s best beer. Nicely hoppy and balanced. Not really any head, but not watery like most of their other beers. Not bad at all

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at the brewpub. My favored of the 8 sampled there. It was quite cloudy with a red hue and a small off white ring. A truly distinct appearance. Aroma is full of hop. This could be a double IPA it is so full of hop. There is a boat load of hop in here but it is offset nicely by some sweet malt. Still, this is indeed a "hop extravaganza." Grapefruit. Smooth and oily. Beer geeks and hop heads will love this one. Interestingly, I found out this was a mistake beer. The yeast did not settle as hoped giving it the unfiltered and cloudy appearance. That also gave it some distinction that piqued my interest.
