3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
clear amber beer. Medium white head. Lots of lacing with good head retention. Aroma is predominantly pine and tangerine citrus with some tropical notes - mango, pineapple. Mild bready malt backbone, but it’s definitely hop forward. Taste is dry with good hop flavor. Just a touch of bland bitterness in the finish, not that I mind. Just a touch of malt flavor but it’s mostly those same hop notes coming through. Light on the palate. Drying. Tasty stuff.

On tap in Long Beach. It pours golden with a nice white head. The aroma is tangerines and tropical fruit. The flavor is dry and very hoppy with grapefruit, some pine and only mild hints of grass and bready malt. Very bitter citrusy finish. A real hop bomb of an APA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a golden orange color with a thick white head. Heavy on the citrus and pine hop aromas. A bit of pineapple and maybe a slight herbal character to it. Hints of bready malt as well. Lots and lots of pine flavor and a strong bitterness, too. Citrus flesh and peel notes are prominent. Some bready malt and just a little bit of sweetness.
