3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells bright for an ale. Like a hoppy budweiser. Amber color with a tan bubbly head that rose quick. watch out for that. Hoppy start and little bitter aftertaste. Pretty good but not great.

Bottle shared by a friend. Pours clear amber with a thick off-white head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel and pine. Malty and caramelly flavor with diacetyl butteriness before an earthy hop finish.

Overall very solid IPA, hoppy and bitter but worth it in every way. At Venice ale house on tap

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
16oz bottle pours with a clear copper body that supports a full nearly creamy head of tan foam. Right when I pop the top my aromatic senses are assaulted by garlic and shallots and onion dank hoppy goodness. Upon further inspection the dankness doesn’t seem as bold and I also pick up thin snippets of citrus hops. The taste is similar, yes I say, as I get a nice mix of dank earthy shallot like hop flavor and bitterness with a flash of citrus too. It moves into being progressively more bitter midway and into the finish enhancing the experience. This is nice stuff with pleasing balance between hop bitterness, hop flavor and a lightly sweet malty body.

Interesting hop aroma, not the typical hop aroma associated with the Cs which is cool. Wasn’t a fan of the palate too much though.

Pint bottle, pours amber with some lacing. Sweet pine nose mixed with citrus. Bitter foward with a mix of malts and grapefruit hops. No flavors are dominate. Clean dry taste and finish. Nothing jumps out at me.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an orangish yellow, quite dark for a WC IPA. Thin head that fades relatively fast. Huge "C" hop aromas pound the nose then assault the mouth on the first sip. This is a great big, massive tasting beer that only clocks in at 6.5%. The mouthfeel is just a little heavy but not overwhelming. Overall this is a great beer super hoppy, with a very dry finish, nicely attenuated. I love every sip.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice IPA that hits all the notes of the West Coast style. Good malty backbone, betrayed by the copper pour, with a nice froth. Pine in aroma and what hits you first in taste. This gives way to a lingering bitterness. Not a bad beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
16oz capped bottle. Orangish golden with a touch of haze and loose white head. Interesting hop aromatics, smells really like no other ipa that I have had. Mostly just smells like fresh squeezed oj, sweet pine and chewy sweet malt. More malty, some piney hops, some soap, finishes clean enough.

Oranges on the nose grapefruit as well juicy citrus nose. Muted but pleasant. Hazy orange pour thin bubbles not much head. Toasty light biscuit oranges soft sweetness. Light rye. Balanced but kind of muddled. Decent carbonation and balance. Not bad beer by any means just somewhat uninteresting.
