"Pours a light amber with an orange tint to it. Slightly cloudy and a fluffy medium sized head which recedes after a couple of minutes. Tons of sticky lacing. The aroma has some faint citrus hops are subtle compared to the strong grainy malt aroma. Getting some yeast scents as well. The taste initially is subtle grapefruit hop flavor is overtaken by biting malt. A bit of earthiness to the lingering hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium with above average carbonation.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with a January expiration date but Iím not sure what year. I assume Jan 14. The color is medium amber, slightly cloudy, with a lingering smallish head. The aroma is floral and also has a kind of chocolate note, which I found to be unusual for an IPA. The body is medium. The taste has a chocolate sweet malty note up front and a full bitterness at the end. Rather unique.

Part of the sampler at the brewery in Concord CA. The aroma is the best part of this beer. Nice floral hop smell, but the hop flavor fell apart on the palate.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Floral hops aroma over a citrus mandarin sweetness. A distinctly hoppy, malty body and a bitter finish. The malt adds a level of sweet to head of the bite and keeps it in check quite nicely.

Bottle. Floral hops and orange juice aroma, cloudy amber color, taste is mostly just a light bitter, smooth cream feel across the palate with a very short watery finish. Pretty good IPA.

Orange pour, white head. Straigh forward IPA here. Some citrus and grassy hops with a hint more malt than most west coast examples. Standard stuff.

Pours light amber with fairly fluffy white head. No aroma to speak of especially for an ipa. Weak body not bitter and a thin finish. Bleh.

12oz bottle, from Jungle Jimís in Eastgate. Best by notch is October 2012... Purchased this 5 days ago... Hazy darker orange color. Thin, kind of airy beige head. Decent retention. Leaves pretty decent, thicker lace. Bigger body. Smooth, lighter, kind of crisp carbonation. Lightly dry in the texture. Nose is not that of a fresh IPA, it definitely smells a little malt forward, but the hop is still there in the flavor, doing alright. Some citrusy hops, lemon zest, along with big cakey biscuity malt. Not too much caramel. Moderate sweet taste though, more than I want from an IPA, with light to moderate bitter. A lot better than I expected, over all. Probably pretty tasty fresh.
