On tap at the Yard House in Northridge. Aromas of mango, and peach that dissipated quickly. Very smooth bitterness with a sweet peachy finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2013 Bottle from Nathaniels. Pours a bright golden color with a small white head. Aroma is very nice freshly citric and balanced well with the pine and dank notes, with a strong malt backbone. Flavor has a lot of the same, strong malt base, not too caramely with a nice soft orange citrus character. Mild to moderate bitterness. Good stuff.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Strangely cheesy nose with only a small amount of hoppy freshness coming through. Pours steady gold with a fluffy beige head. The flavour is where it comes into its own - spicy, peppery hops with some melon, some kiwi, some candy and some lemon peel. A bot of paprika and coriander round it off and a big fat buttery mouthfeel provides the balance. Very nice.

golden ale with hues of brown and orange. appealing aroma mainly of pollen, wood and citrus grapefruit that is represented exactly in the taste. some ivy as well, with a moderate body and powerful alcohol that burns or stings a little in the mouth. enjoyed only slightly chilled.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of the cleanest IPA’s on the market. Bottle pours a white fluffy head that sticks around for a bit, and laces well. The flavor is citrus fruit followed with a crisp hop finish. For a 7% ABV IPA this beer drinks like a session beer. It has great drinkability and will kick your d!#k in the dirt if you drink too many. Believe the hype and go buy a six pack.

You can’t go wrong with this IPA. Great from start to finish. The citrus is well balanced with the hop. Use this as your standard for comparison.
