Gorgeous golden ale with beautiful white head. Perfect balance of sweet hoppy citrus at the front end with nice punchy bitter on the back end. (22oz Bottle / Walnut Liquorette, Walnut, CA / March 2012)

Beautiful sunset orange color, two finger head; aroma is mango, peach, lemon, grape, and some pineapples, but follows up with an abrupt metallic taste and nuts; lively carbonation with an oily texture, dry bitter herby finish

Draft at yard house. Thin white head, good lacing. Not a lot of aroma, but big hop flavor. Citrus pine, and evenly balanced malt on the tongue. Good, average IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A little hazy. Small head that vanishes fast. Aroma of passionfruit, pine, citrus, honey. Tastes as it smells.Powerfull lingering bitterness with fruit and alcohol. Nice but not more than that.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2014 12 oz bottle. Starts off with a grapefruity nose, that settles down to a pleasing maltiness with a slight banana-butterscotch ester. Yeasty haze in the glass. Balanced bitter and sweetness. Pleasant bitter finish. It’s a good one. A citrusy-hoppy pale ale rounded out with the right amount of maltiness.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of tropical fruits and melon. Piney and a bitter bomb at first. Hop bitters mellow as you go on. I prefer Terrapin high 5 or Two Heart esp at 12-13 bucks a sixer.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of the perfect examples of an IPA. Aroma, taste, color, and palate all shine in unison. Grapefuits, lemons, hops, and crystal malt come through and leave you wanting more.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Drank from a 22 oz bottle poured into a glass. Pours with very little head but a rich peachy/gold color-beautiful. Aroma is piney with a hint of apricot and mango. Taste is fabulous mix of bright crisp hops, citrus and apricots. Neither sweet or dry, and one of the easiest to drink IPAs I have tried. Good thing it is light on alcohol (for an IPA that is). Perfect amount of fizz to go with the fresh flavors and aroma. Overall a delicious beer perfect for late afternoon relaxin'!
