3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
White foam, beautiful packaging (bottle label), deep golden color, slightly resinous interface. Low medium carbonation. Pine and grass aromas ride back seat to abundant grapefruit with a pineapple twist. Substantial malt backbone by comparison to a host of the drier regional IPAs. Semi dry. Finishes with an herbal bitter bite. Alcohol slightly apparent there in a peppery zip. An interesting stroll down the now broad and well beaten IPA path.

A super well rounded IPA. A complex weaving of hops on the nose and tongue. Drink this beer cold and by itself. Delicious.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from House Of Spirits in Monrovia. This beer poured a beautiful clear orange pour with a big white bubbly head. Aroma is freaking awesome with notes of citrus, caramel, and fruity hops. Taste is initially super fruity and sticky with an onslaught of hops hitting the back of your palate. Finishes dry with some caramel malt flavor to keep it from getting too bitter. Wow this is a phenomenal IPA.

On tap it has a golden amber color with a small head. The aroma is floral with herbs and hops. Taste has pine and a grapefruit bite. Hoppiness comes through in the end wth more citrus. Nice tangy beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub - Pours clear amber with a ring of white head. Smells of citrus peel, Christmas tree, and some onion/dank/cat pee hops. Pretty well-balanced malt. Tastes a little more fruity than the smell, with a blend of citrus, grass, and pine. Finishes long and bitter. Well-carbonated and maybe a bit too sharp.

Tap at FW Fest. Pours a dark golden with medium white head. Aroma is loads of strawberry and black berry. Great hop profile in the taste with simcoe coming through and some citrus elements. Fruity IPAs are my thing and thus this is my thing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Toronado SD. Pours a low haze, light orange. Weak head formation. Nose is puppy breath, orange rind, orange gummies. Taste is spicy, boozy, thick cantaloupe, peppercorn. Palate is very thick and nutty...heavy. Too chewy with mild paper in the finish. Small chemical off flavor. Needs some work.
