3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap: Pours a clear deep amber bronze with a stringy-lacing froth of white head. Has a fresh citrusy hoppy nose with some lightly toasted pale malty undertones. Starts with a mild sweetness that quickly dries out revealing lots of grapefruity hops and crisp bitterness before a smooth bittersweet finish. A true "west-coast-style" IPA that I wish was more widely available.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This poured a nice hazy lighter orange color with a beige head. Aroma was lots of very fruity hops, mainly mangos and peaches, some grassy notes, as well as grainy malts, and some orange notes too. Flavor was much the same, just not quite as prominent, lots of fresh tropical fruit notes, yet fairly dry and biring. Pretty great beer.
