4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On Nitro tap at brewery. Beautiful golden pour with thick, puffy, white head that only nitro can do. Nose is citrus, pine, and some tropical fruits. Taste follows the nose but the hops are dialed down a little compared to other IPAs. Mouthfeel is crazy good and creamy.

Lots of lemony grapefruit and pine in the nose. Looking for a little more malt to balance all those hop flavors. Some honey up front in the taste.
however the bitterness does not over power the taste. Clean and very dry finish. Very good. There could be a couple of IPAs I like better, but this is up there.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright gold pour with a thin white head that left a few spots of lacing. Bready aroma with a lot of pine and citrus hops, which lean more towards lemon and grapefruit. Flavor is very lemony, somewhat doughy, with a sharp pine bite. Light and crisp, pretty refreshing. Well carbonated. Lingering bitter finish that seems slightly abrasive. A good beer, no doubt, but I’m having trouble trying to figure out why this is highly rated. For the trouble you have to go through to get it, I’d rather have Pliny, or even Blind Pig.

Aroma is citrusy hops, tangerine and lemon. Nothing but sweet goodness.
The appearance is banana yellow, tiny bubbles of carbonation. Fluffy head; decent spotty lace. Very "pale."
The flavor is citrus: tangerine, orange, lemon, hint of apple skins. Very sweet with just a hint of pale malts. Meshes beautifully. A touch of dry yeast at the finish.
The palate is slightly fizzy and juicy. Very hefty finish. A little dry. (It reminds me of Rogue Yellow Snow, So. Tier Krampus.) This is a sweet, summery IPA and a damn good one.

22oz - Phenomenal representation of the style. Frothy head, orange liquid, bright hoppy flavors, bitterness balanced by malt.

Sampled from the tap at Rattle N Hum. Poured a hazy orangish gold with a white head that dissiapted slowly to the edges. Aroma had a nice combination of citrus, grapefruit and backing pine and resin. Flavor had a more pine and grapefruit with the citrus and resin calming down a bit. Nicely balanced ipa.

Pours light straw with thin white head. Really nice aroma of citrus. But the flavor is somewhat lacking. Not a lot of bitterness. Not bad just not a kick in the pants I thought the hops would be.

On tap at Dublins Downtown Los Angeles. Pours out a hazy yellowish orange witha good head. Aromas of grapefruits, California hops lemon ppeels, a pineapple that has been picked too early and roasted malts. Tastes of intense hops at first which settles into a crisp bitterness. The citrus fruit flavors adds a refreshing quality to this beer. Nicely balanced with the malt sweetness providing the backbone. This brew finishes perfectly crisp and leaves a subtle bitter taste. One of my favorite single I P A s.
