3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a very light copper sort of color with a big soapy white head.
S: The nose is incredibly piney and floral with hints of grapefruit citrus aromas. The low gravity nature of this beer doesn’t leave much room for malt character, but there might be a hint of bread in there somewhere.
T: Intensely bitter and heavy on the resinous pine flavors. However, after the initial hop blast, the flavor is a touch watery and does not exhibit much else.
M: The body is on the lighter side of medium with a crisp carbonation and solid bitterness.
D: One of the better collaboration beers with that signature San Diego hop character. Nice and easy to drink, but unfortunate that this one will only retain its pleasantness for a relatively short time.
