Dank hops and a whole lotta citrus. Orange, grapefruit, pineapple. A classic West Coast (San Diego) style IPA to me. Less pine and more citrus than some of its brethren.

piscator34 (2260) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 16, 2016
Bomber. Gold in colour with medium carbonation. Odd aromas of chocolate mint, oranges, and sticky pale malt. Sweet orange and sweet malts, along with more of that mint thing. Heavy bodied, and a bit odd.
