An amazing blend of pine, citrus and hops to create a layered and complex flavor array

On tap @ City Beer. Orange pour with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit, orange, and pine hops. Some sweet caramel, a touch of pineapple, and a hint of onion. Flavor is fairly bitter with some sweet caramel notes throughout. A lot of grapefruit and orange. Fairly pine forward, light onion, and hints of tropical fruit.

On tap at City Beer. Wow. This was very impressive. It pours a golden color with a creamy white head. The aroma is incredible with huge tropical fruit, gooseberries, mango, pineapple and grapefruit. The flavor is full and creamy with grapefruit and pine with some white grape and a bit of diesel bitterness in the finish. Very bitter in fact. Great full body without a hint of caramel sweetness. This one is right up my alley except for the punishing bitter finish. They could have gone a little more subtle there. Still awesome though.

Fresh growler shared at a BBQ. Pours a deep burnt orange color with no light coming through. Very cloudy and murky with a nice soapy head sitting on top. Nice big aroma of citrus, pine, some hay, grass and sweet malts. Flavor is impressive, with a big blast of grapefruit, mango, resins and more pine. Lots of accompanying bitterness balanced by a big malty body. Malty caramel sweetness, a little toasty. You can feel the high ABV on this one, but the taste is very good. After taste of sweetness and pine, very nice mouth and great carbonation. A really nice surprise IPA from a small town. Unfortunately the brewery wasn’t open in time for me to check it out, but nice breakfast joints are around.

On tap for beer week! Aroma is citrus hops. Poured dark, like dark copper, diminishing head with little lacing. Flavor is great. Very bitter but good malt balance. Very good ipa! Palate is medium bodied and finishes sort of dry, very drinkable.

On tap at Capitol Beer & Tap Room , Sacramento. Pours cloudy amber with a decent beige head and a citrus aroma. There is a terrific toffee and citrus flavor sticks to the palate.

On tap at Capitol Beer and Taproom hazy, almost no head, bitter upfront. Underrated.
