3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I love IPA’S, however, this was a bit weak in the aroma, flavor, palate area.
It has some good qualities, but falls short.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a medium pale gold, nose is weak on hop and mostly grain, taste is a little boring with too much residual sweetness.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle->shaker: Pours a spare frothy off-white head that has some lacing with some mild carbonation onto a yellow/amber body that is clear with no particulates. Lightly hoppy aroma, some citrus taste, and a tart aftertaste with a smooth but astringent finish. A pretty decent IPA, doesn’t justify the price.

Draft. Dark copper pour with an off-white head. Big, fruity hop aroma. Fresh strawberries and citrus, mostly grapefruit. Very hop-forward flavor with a clean grapefruit taste. Bitter finish.

Tasting at the brewery. Very typical IPA nose and flavor...good floral and hop notes on the taste. Solid.

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I was a little worried when Firestone took over SLO but the IPA has remained the same. A golden IPA with a great balance of floral and bitterness. Still one of my favorites.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light amber colour with light frothy head. Aromatic with citrus hops and some hay. Nice hop presence throughout although the malts were thinner. Decent standard brewpub IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lemony, zesty malt APA aroma. Yellow-gold, big beady head, nice bottle, good label. Medium-heavy hopping, citrusy. Well done American Golden Ale. Citrus gelatin flavors, finishes out with a pleasant bitterness. Fresh, sweetish, enjoyable. Mellow Mushroom, Auburn.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Toronado. Dark orange color, lots of fluffy lacing. Pleasant light citrus hop aroma, a little grass as well -- nice not to be overwhelmed. Taste of the same sweet citrus hops, a decent caramel malt backbone, overall a subdued enjoyable beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not a bad beer by any means just little stood out compared to other IPAs. Moderately hoppy nose and flavor, but with nothing outstanding or remarkable to really comment on. Your average IPA is basically what this is.
