Clear orange with a whipped froth of white foam. Tropical fruit, citrus aroma with just a little spice. Medium body is well balanced. Grapefruit and malt clash in a mild hop bitterness. Finish is smooth and refreshes.

Pours a clear light orange. Smells of pine, grapefruit. Taste is excellent balance of assertive hop bitterness and malt sweetness. I get orange, lime, caramel, toffee, pine. Very solid west coast IPA; among the best widely available.

Clear orange golden color with a fine white head. Nice lacing. Toffee, caramel, over the top tropical and hoppy aroma. Medium (+) body and a fine carbonation. Tad to sweet. To much caramel/toffee, harse fruity, resinous and grapefruit hoppy. Not good. Will like to try a fresher one.

Stopped for a beer and a snack after a short hike and was rewarded with this beer! It was a great surprise. Just a hint of an aftertaste, but I think that adds to it’s character.
