3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint pour at Peg’s of an odd color yellow, somewhat bright. Nose is good citrus with plenty of grapefruit. Sharp. Flavor is somewhat off, good hop presence but a little funky? Maybe it’s just me. I can’t quite place it. Nice smooth body.

Draft pour at Cycle. Pours a hazy light golden color with a rocky head. Aroma is tropical fruit and hops, but mild. Flavor is sweet tropical fruit, with a light beer, refreshing cool finish. Beach beer here. Thirst quenching. Lingering pineapple. Awesome session.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
32 oz. crowler poured into a snifter. Originally reviewed 4/2/2015.
Dull hazy orange body. Medium white head. Nice lacing and surface wisping.
Smell has that New Zealand hop combination of herbal tones and tropical fruit. A little grainy.
The hop flavor splits into two parts. Delicate tropical fruit flavor right up front. Toasty malt right behind it before the herbal flavors kick in. Very mild bitterness.
Light and drinkable. Well carbonated.
Unique pale ale. I wouldn’t call it a hop bomb, as it is advertised, but it has a very nice hop profile.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy bright yellow with a 2 finger white head. Smells of sweet mango candy, then some odd smell, seems a bit like if it was diacetyl or something. Weird smell. Taste is on the lemony side, some grains, a bit of grass and a hint of black pepper. Noticeable carbonation with a light medium body. Overall: The smell is weird, The taste is better but I wouldn’t ask for this

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
32 oz. crowler, consumed on 11-14-15. Pours a hazy, pale brass with a large amount of long-lasting, uneven, off-white to cream-colored head. The color is a bit boring, but the head and lacing make up for it. Produces good lacing. Nice, classically West Coast American, piney, herbal, dank aroma. Also yeasty. Good, dank, herbal, mineral, slightly-bitter, hops-dominated flavor. Sawdust. Some lemony citrus. A touch of apricot. Bread dough. Dry, bitter finish. Very nice hops effect but little going on underneath. Medium body. Quite lively in the palate. The liveliness is good but the palate effects otherwise are ordinary. Simple and not amazing but an above average and overall impressive IPA.

Good god. On tap at the source. Golden light orange, slight haze, head has nice structure. Big on tropical fruit, some melon, pineapple. Dry texture, but the flavors linger in a big way. Smooth carb. Wonderful.

On tap a couple of different places. No detailed notes - just noticed I’ve never entered it. Good session IPA - less bitter than Fixie, but similarly balanced.
