3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear golden with a good sized soapy white head. The aroma has a mix of tropical fruits (guava/mango) and citrus (orange,/grapefruit) and some nice light caramel malt with just a hint. It has a medium body that is smooth at first and then gets crisp with good amt of carbonation for the style. The flavor starts off much like the aroma, but starts with a bit richer malt. The finish is quite heavy on the grapefruit and has some cracker notes, but the rich tropical fruits and caramel retain the whole way through. Really nice session IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle from Kroger This is nice easy drinking IPA. The ale poured a clear light amber with a lingering off-white head and modest lacing. the aroma was of pine resin and grapefruit rind. The medium body ale had average carbonation. This brewery is one of my favorites. I hope they decide to come East as some of the West Coast Breweries have done. A dry clean finish wraps up this approachable ale.

A great hoppy IPA- it's hard to believe it has such a low alcohol. Great aroma and flavor.

My Bottom Line:
This sessionable Pale Ale’s juicy citrus fruit and floral angles deliver an easygoing profile with well positioned herbal bitterness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the translucent pale golden.
-Mouthfeel is super lean, which increases drinkability.
-This one lacked a little bite for my tastes in the style. Perhaps a question of freshness?
-Malts offered basic cereal flavors which ably supported the fruity hop aromatics.
On tap at Toronado San Diego.
