4oz sampler @ VCBW 2016- Day 2, last beer of the day (#14 for the day, #27 of the week). Bright, sweeter and maltier than your average IPA. Clean finish, slightly short length, some citrus. Solid

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at VCBW Festival 2016, pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out some dank piney hops, a little herbal pot-like quality and biscuity malt. Flavour tastes rather earthy and vegetal, with a herbal hop quality, earthiness and biscuity malt. Not the most impressive IPA out there, but it’s decent. Lacking cohesion.

Figueroa has a pretty nice range of IPAs. I would consider this more of a session IPA compared to their others. Good hops in the nose and body. A little bite. It’s good.

Floral overtones to the characteristic IPA citrus aroma. Deep amber in color with lacy but quickly dissipating head. Dry taste profile and not particularly bitter. Body is light. Lacks the more full-bodied feel of most IPAs.

Really forward hop flavor. Finish is pretty bitter at first, but it quickly dissipates. Pretty nice IPA.

Tap at Big Sky restaurant in San Luis. Fat fruity nose. Thin copper color. Tangy, with citrus. A big fruity jum in mid palate, peach, some caramel, and moderate bitter track. Pleasant stuff.

12 oz bottle at Shutters on the Beach. Orange appearance with a frothy white head. Notes of toasted grain, grass, citrus fruit and pine in the nose. Similar flavor, moderately bitter with a light dry finish. Solid IPA overall.

In the glass it has an amber color with a small head. The aroma has citrus and pine needles. The taste has more citrus with some bitterness up front. There is a resin taste on the finish.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from the bottle into a shaker glass. Golden color with a cream colored head and nice lacing. Aroma is sweet and bready with some floral hops. It could be my mind playing tricks on me since I know they're in there, but I swear I'm picking up the poppy seeds in the aroma too. There is a lot of malt notes in the flavor with breadiness and sweetness that seems like toffee, but may be some influence from the poppy seeds. Floral hops come in towards the finish. A little unbalanced towards the sweet malty side for my taste. Light / medium bodied and there seems to be some diacetyl present. Not very impressed.
