4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz - Hazed dark golden amber, creamy white head. Fresh peachy pine aromas and kisses of citrus ride a warming sweet malt backbone. Sharp up front sticky resiny bitterness balances on notes of grass. A light sweet malt rounds the hops out well. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, bitter finish. A well made West Coast IPA that hop heads should certainly seek out…

Bottle shared by robert at stateline. Thanks robert! Solid IPA... Poured a nice orange color. Aroama was a typical IPA citrus hops. Taste was a good bitterness. Not a citrus or pine hops though. Could not quite put my finger on it. Medium texture. Overall a solid IPA, that I would buy again.

22oz bottle pours light and cloudy orange with a 1/2 inch white head. Pungent fresh hop nose, full of citrus orange, lemon and pineapple, dry and grassy, somewhat dank, but very fresh and enticing. Bitterness is medium to heavy, malt body is mostly smooth and full, fresh fruity melon and oranges all around, wonderfully fruity and fresh, lightly drying in the finish. Very nice.
