3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear amber with medium, pale beige head. Aroma is dominated by hops: fruity and tropical, with an underlying dull malty sweetness. Flavor follows suit: tons of fruit, predominantly sweet and tropical, with slight hints of peach, and slight malty sweetness. A very solid, flavorful session IPA, but not quite on par with, say, an All Day IPA.

Part of the sampler at the tap room in Concord CA. Pours a copper color and smells of peaches. Fruity flavor with slight bitter hop. Pretty much a toned down IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewery. It pours a golden color with an off white shrinking head. The aroma is very fruity with mango, berries and citrus. The flavor is a good balance of pine spice and citrus with hints of tropical fruit. There is some background caramel malts, but it finishes pretty dry and pleasantly bitter. Overall, a nice job here.
