3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
poured from a 22 oz. bomber into a tulip glass, it is a hazy, cloudy almost opaque yellow-orange with a nice head.
It’s labeled a "West Coast IPA"... Not sure what make it west coast other than the fact that it’s brewed in LA. At first I thought it had similarities to many other IPA’s: nice citrus aroma, generous head, a touch of bitterness. What makes this IPA different is the amount of biscuit malt flavor it has. Yes, there are the expected grapefruit and pine hop notes, but this has way more malted barley presence than any other IPA I have had in recent memory.

Pour on tap at the brewery, yellow-orange pour with white head, aroma brought big pine, grass, orange peel, citrusy notes into caramel, toffee, slight spice, the hops shine through on this one. Taste is nice, big orange, grapefruit, and lemony notes into grassy, spicy hops, nice biscuit, caramel in there, finishing bitter. Their best beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Appeared as a golden blonde liquid with a thin layer of foam. Aroma is faint with only a minor scent of musty hops. Luckily, the flavor delivers more of a punch with a bitter bite of hops that shine in the spot light while the malts do their job and prop up the beer and its hidden 7 %ABV. Nice job and I would consider this West Coast IPA to be standard to the style for the price.

bomber from whole foods Santa Barbara. I really like the offerings from this brewery. Really nice west coast IPA that can stand up well against Stone or the myriad of northern california and oregon offerings. citrus out the wazoo, complex palate, lingering hops. really enjoyed this one, although their XPA is even better.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2013 Pours a light gold color with a decent head in a taster glass. Aroma is grapefruit and Orange with a bready sweet Barely corn malty note with a citrucy tropical hop presence. Taste is more citrucy hop foreword with the sweet Barely corn malt backbone. Very very nice Ipa!!
