COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The two-row pale malt body takes a back seat to the Citra, Centennial, and New Zealand hops for a bright, citrus forward, summertime drinking IPA. Part of the proceeds from this beer will be donated to our hardworking friends at Heal the Bay - an organization committed to restoring and protecting the Southern California coastal waters and watershed.

A really nice, refreshing IPA - lager look with a nice variety of citrus tasting hops - gives it a on the beach smooth taste and clean finish. Would recommend this over their Point the Way IPA

A decent IPA, one of Golden Road's better offerings but not quite top-notch. I prefer this to both the old and new Point The Way. Nice grapefruit aroma. I've found it to be a bit better on tap than canned, but perhaps that's a freshness issue.

GriffDaddy (48) - - SEP 2, 2013
Golden, lighter pour with a bit of foam. Sharp hoppy aroma with a bit of rock candy sweetness. Lighter in body than I generally prefer. Kind of piney and medium bitter. Would I drink again? probably. Would I buy/order again? not likely, too many other go to IPA’s that make a bigger statement and are much more balanced.

valleyann83 (15) - California, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Golden, light white head. Very carbonated. Somewhat like a real bitter coors. Nice that it is in a can. There are better IPAs out there, as there are worse.

Golden pour with a foamy white head. Grapefruit sweet nose with really clean hoppiness. tastes sweet up front, malty body,lots of Grapefruit and piney fresh hops. Really clean and crisp. Long bitter finish that keeps you coming back for more.

From tap. Color is amber with thin head. Aroma is sweet like candy. Taste is like a black IPA but not as strong ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Got to try it on draft at the brewery abd I definitely smelt and tasted the awesome citrus aroma. Much smoother than point the way.

Pours a cloudy, pale orange with a short-lasting head. Lots of lacing. Big, citrusy aroma and taste. Golden Road's best so far. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
