3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Pours coppery golden with a touch of haze, some head that releases a strong citrus aroma which includes grapefruit, old oranges, candied dried orange peel, and a certain herbaceousness. Flavor is clean malt, some crystal, medium-light caramel. Bitterness is kept in check, well-balanced with the crystal malt sweetness. It’s funny because with so many extreme ipas out there now it’s really hard to not come back and look at this one with the same eye. Finish is fairly crisp and dry which in a way hides the 7% giving the impression of a sessionable ipa.

Pours slightly hazy gold, lasting frothy white head. Slight resiny aroma. Big, faintly sweet malt structure with well balanced dry resin hops finish. Palate has great body. Overall, this IPA has a simple clarity of style, beautifully constructed.

From notes. On draft, Beer Authority, Manhattan, NYC served in a shaker glass. Pours hazy amber-gold. One finger off white head. Some retention and laces heavy to the bottom of the glass. Aroma of grapefruit and grass.Taste is bitter with a nice biscuit malt backbone. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, slightly sticky mouth feel. Finishes medium bitter. Tasting notes of grapefruit, lemon, mango, flowery, grass, biscuit, spruce and resin. I’ve had this in the past in a bottle and wasn’t as good as this pour. Very nice, easy to drink IPA.

Ma 1e IPA californienne. Belle couleur. Mouche blanche et bulles moyennes. Nez : agrumes, mangue, résineux. Goûts : superbe entrée en bouche gouleyante, douce et fraîche. Je retrouve les houblons des arômes : citron, pamplemousse, fruits tropicaux. Bel équilibre et amertume moyenne. Top beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice pale gold with lasting, chunky, off-white head leaving great lacing. Aroma is ripe fruit and juicy citrus. Taste starts with a nice play of bitter and sweet, with balanced citrus hops and caramel malts. Palate is creamy and lip smacking with a substantial body. Finishes balanced as well, with a nice finish of bready malts and bitter citrus. Super good stuff.
