3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Tons of citrusy orange tangerine aromas. A small amount of marijuana is present as well. Transparent dark-copper color with an off-white/light tan head. Lots of citrus, orangey hops to start, turning quite bitter and harsh in the middle. Mild dry maltiness in the finish that renders this quite drinkable. Very reminiscent of some of the SoCal IPAs that I had in San Diego.

Clear copper. Thin white head. Light carbonation. Medium body loaded with citric and piney hops. Sticky aftertaste. Alcohol taste increases as you drink but is not bothersome. Crystal malt balance. Hops are fresh and tasty and resinous. Finishes bitter, strong, hefty and with a surge of spicy alcohol. Nice job.
