Citrus aroma; golden appearance with lacy white head; very hoppy taste; fizzy on the palate with a hoppy but not strongly bitter finish that lingers with hops; overall, a very good west coast IPA, though not necessarily dynamic ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Growler from GT2. Pours a slightly greasy orange, lots of white head. Aroma heavy and dank, lots of resin, rice. Body smooth, with a slightly tangy bitterness to the finish. Nice.

Dogbrick (8660) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Sample at Pizza Port San Clemente. The beer pours a clear dark golden color with a medium white head that diminishes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma is hoppy with citrus and malt notes in the background. Medium-bodied with a moderately bitter piney hops character and flavors of roast malt and tropical fruit. The finish is hoppy with a pine aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

toxichop (397) - South Gate, California, USA - SEP 19, 2013
P: Golden with a big frosty white head. S: Big pine and grapefruit, such a lovely inviting smell with juicy pineapples, pears and lemons. T: Starts off bitter and harsh but it balances out rather quickly. The bitter pine flows at first followed by grapefruit and grass. The bready malt makes a short apperance and it finally finishes dry and semi-bitter. M: Medium body with medium bitterness. O: Good stuff, a fantastic smell with a bit of a let down on taste but it never fall flat.

On tap @ Beachwood BBQ. Clear golden pour with a white head. Very dry nose of floral hops, grass, and orange rind. Grapefruit, some pale malt, pine, and light biscuit. Very bitter, dry flavor. Big orange and grapefruit rind, floral notes, and some grass. Light biscuit malt a moderate pine note.

GT2 (8741) - San Diego County, California, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Tap at Beachwood BBQ Seal Beach. Cream top rocky head on clear light yellow. Huge sheety lace. Nose is bright cantaloupe, squash, and juicy sharp melon, flashes of vanilla and butterscotch. Taste is sticky up front with mega hop content explosion. A bit harsh at the beginning with a ton of IBUs and big hop cone resin. But there is a creamy butteriness to balance the near soapy, intensely floral bite. Really aggressive but not nutty or astringent. Mild alcohol. Butterscotch, vanilla, and mild butterscotch push this into West Coast IPA perfection. So good.

Tap @ PP Carlsbad. Bright golden pour with a frothy white head. Pine, bitterness, lemon, and a dry, clean malt backbone. Taste is moderate bitterness with pine, grapefruit, and a nice bready malt presence. Clean, relatively dry mouthfeel. Lingering bitterness. Really good.
