Amber n color, hazy with extra trub light head. Nice IPA flavor with tons of trub and added spices. This was a interesting beer. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a bomber bottle,
this ale had a clear light to medium yellow pour with some gold and presented a two finger white, wispy head that receded quickly to a thin cover and ring, there were many particles in the glass, not a haze, the particles got bigger and there were clumps that poured towards the bottom of the bottle, the bottom of the bottle had a thick layer of particles floating around,
the aroma was lemon and citrus hops with light toasted malt, it had a little grapefruit and orange in the background and a little sweetness,
the nose had a lot of citrus,
it had flavors of lemon, grapefruit and citrus hops with light malt, pretty much the same as the nose, it had some malt, bread and white sugar sweetness,
the finish had a medium or less hop bitterness with lots of citrus and little malt trailing on the tongue,
the mouth feel was light with generous carbonation,
this IPA had a lot of citrus.

Draft at Ale House. Pours orange brown with a big off white head that clings. Aroma is citrus and biscuit. Flavor is caramel malt, bitter lime and grapefruit citrus. Sounds good, but doesn’t quite work for me. Lime pith and grass bitter in the finish.

Let the bottle warm to 45-50 before opening!
Aroma of citrus zest and American hops. Lime shines in flavor much more than aroma. Moderate bitterness. Finishes slightly tart from lime and zest.
The lime sets this apart from other IPAs. Overall a solid base IPA, depends on your lime preference

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg at the Coronado tasting room, Coronado Island SD, 20/04/14.
Murky yellow orange with a moderate off white swirl and edgework.
Nose is orange squash, light spice, hint of pine, grapefruit, mandarin.
Taste comprises floral hops, orange squash, tangerine, straw, light toast.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light hop bitterness.
So so IPA, tasty and refreshing in some senses but a little 1D and over orangey, lacks a hoppy punch.

On tap @ Murphy's. Rich hoppy aroma. Creamy white head. Very unfiltered. Cloudy yellow orange. Very nice IPA flavors with hint of spices. Just a hint of the lime.

Pours an opaque yellow color with a floral aroma. Taste is happy and floral mixed with some grapefruit. A slight spice to the beer that dissipates with the swallow. The fruit notes come through more than the spice, but a very drinkable IPA.
