Sweet malt and citrus hops in the nose. Very punchy and fresh tasting hop medley, featuring citrus, grapefruit, pine and orange elements. Soft bready malt underneath completes the classic west coast IPA profile. Significant carbonation pumps up the taste. "Juicy and fresh" - the great descriptor of superior West Coast IPAs!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Meditrina. Copper with lasting head lace and yeast floaters. Fruity toasted caramel and bready aroma. Sweet toasted caramel nuts and lots of fruit with fruity medium spicy bitter long fruity finish. Medium body nice carbo. Pretty good but quite sweet and toasty. I am shocked at the ratings as I thought most people prefer a drier more hop forward IPA. Oh well, to each his own.

16 oz. can. Pours a mostliy clear deep orange with big, fluffy white head. Nose and flavor are marked with bitter grapefruit pith, sourdough and rye grain, pine. Too much malt character. Good hops, but just not all that impressive.

In bottle (advent calendar) .. well, another RR beer that foamed up alot when I opened it so I only had about half a bottle left.
An OK, beer .. I am not an IPA fan though found this drinkable as it seemed less hoppy; some nice citrus ... still wouldn’t buy it again though

Aroma is clove, lemon grass, earthiness and light sweet malts. Taste is light crystal malts which transition into a fairly full hop body that finishes smoothly. Appearance is a clear gold witb a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.
