A heavily-hopped, West Coast-style IPA. Bold, complex flavors with a solid malt backbone and assertive hop profile, along with cold conditioning give this beer its crisp, clean finish.

From the can poured in to tulip. Pours hazy copper color with orangish white head and good lacing. Good pine, grass hop aromas. Initial taste has solid malt moving quickly to hoppy resin pine needles and a bit of citrus and clean slightly bitter finish.

On draft. I had no expectations, but this still surprised me. The base beer is clean and neutral and allows the hop profile to dominate. The hops are mostly pine, although there was some resin and citrus too. Nothing crazy, just a very well done West Coast IPA.

16oz at Mei Mei pours a clear amber with some frothy, white head. Nose has the classic IPA character, orange rind, grapefruit, mild herbs, a little grist. Flavor has orange and grapefruit, herbs, some cracker, biscuit. Dry finish.

This is a copper color brew with a bitter aspirin flavor. It smells like woody pine and aside from being heavy and sweet there is nothing else wrong with it.

12 oz can shared by a friend, thanks Mike! Canned in October 2015 if I read the dating correctly, must have been sitting in the liquor store. Clear amber orange with off-white head. Aromas of caramel, malt, floral notes, toasty notes. Tastes of malt, caramel, toast, biscuit, light citrus. Medium body with a dry finish.

Drank from a pint glass poured from a twelve ounce can. Thank you KevDawg! Not a fan of this IPA, all I taste are hops, where my malts!?

Can pour into nonic pint glass from Julio’s Liquors. Aroma is strong fruit and citrus. Appearance is beautiful, clear, dark copper with minimal attractive sparkle, two-finger width fluffy white head after aggressive pour and nice sudsy lacing. Taste is surprisingly forward sweet malt (mainly caramel) with fruit and citrus with bitter ending. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin, slightly sticky texture, average carbonation (could be a tad more) and bitter, dry, crisp finish. Overall, this is a nice IPA. Good West Coast flavor without getting overly bitter. Surprising amount of malt in the flavor.

APPEARANCE- light amber with a golden hue, head pours perfectly white and laces nicely. NOSE- Light aroma of fruity hop. just the right amount. FLAVOR- strongly resinous flavors abound, but do not overpower my tastebuds. Enough fruitiness in the hop to keep it light. NOTES- really well balanced ipa.

Can. Pours bright, clear orange with a large and dense beige head. Very mild nose sweet and candyish with raw hap/vegetal undertones. Taste bone-dry with a little orangey-crystal flitting in the background, not particularly juicy but with mild resin, chewy medium caramel, and earth and soap. Does remind of the IPAs of a decade ago, though with only medium bitterness and slightly oilier (no brutality offered here). Very smooth fullish body, hop aromatics are dead by this point but their beautiful oils remain (esepcially orange, tangerine, very light pineapple). Clean and palate cleansing with no apparent alcohol, very pleasant if a little bland, a great choice for a summer on the pier or trail. Very nice. [2015.12.27: 3.7]
