3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewery. Pours a hazy dark orange pour topped by a small, foamy off white colored head that settles quickly to a thin film. The aroma is nice with fresh orange and grapefruit citrus hops with a nice malt profile of sweet toffee. The flavor follows suit with sharp bitterness from the orange and grapefruit citrus hops along with notes of pine resin and grassy hops. The bitterness is balanced out by the toffee malts, but the hops shine through brightly. Medium bodied with lively carbonation and a lengthy bitter finish. This is a solid west coast ipa.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Poured a nice amber orange color. With a little white head that went rather quick. Did leave some nice lacing on the side of the glass as it went. Left some floaters and had nice carbonation bubbles. Aroma was fresh cut grass, citrus, floral hops, and earthy aromas. Flavor was mild bitters, long finish. Medium body. High carbonation. Oily thick mouthfeel. Good IPA.
