3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer pours out a clear, dark gold color with a low foaming cream-colored head. Wisps of it stayed around until I was at the bottom of the glass. The aroma is noticeable almost immediately upon opening the bottle, with scents of citrus and floral. The taste was really goodwith citrus-like bitterness from the presence of hops, but at the same time wasn’t so citrusy that the line between beer and fruit juice was blurred. Although the citrus-like flavor of grapefruit or lemons is what dominates at first, on the second or third taste I noticed more balance with the malts, bringing in an almost under-taste of sweet grains. The finish is dry and sweet at the same time, with little kick as the carbonation level is medium to low.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small offwhite head, short lived with scattered lacing. Good clarity, light copper color. Light hop and malt nose, citrus, light pine and a touch earthy with some grainy malt notes. Body is med/light. Citrusy hop flavors, lightly grainy and doughy malts are seemingly well balanced. Finish is fairly dry. A nice APA.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Barely average IPA, pour was nice golden amber color. Slight off hop presence in the aroma, with more malt than anticipated. Well balanced, but just doesnt really click with the buds.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very pleasant APA with pine and grapefruit hoppiness I like so much, but not overpowering the slightly sweet malt base of caramel and toffee. Excellent beer.

A nice California beer. Many people had told me about this beer and I was pleased to get it. I found the taste easy light and easy to enjoy. Looks very average while your pour but will surpise you.
