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

Chriso. Soft. Creamy. Hop builds but never goes over the top. Dry and satisfying. Nothing exceptional, but pleasant enough.

Can shared at chriso’s - thanks to Ethereal. Pours clear yellow with a creamy white head. Lots of piney hops in the nose, melon, grapefruit. Medium sweet flavor with oily hops, pine needles, melon, ripe lemon. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Oily, resinous finish, moderately sweet with further piney bitterness, some citrus rind, juicy citrus fruits. Not bad.

Scopey (6247) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2014
Can thanks to Caspar. It pours clear golden with a medium white head. The nose is fresh, piney, sherbet, doughy, tangerine, dried mango and orange peel. The taste is bitter-sweet, pine needles, sherbet, brioche, candied peel, minerals and light alcohol with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Pretty solid IPA action.

Thisis12ptfont (826) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Nice citrus hop aroma, tangerine, biscuit, mango and floral. Lighter color IPA with a golden appearance. Taste is light tangerine, floral, orange and biscuit. Overall, not really bitter. Not really full bodied. Pretty watery.

bhensonb (10764) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Can from Trader Joe’s in Davis, CA. Pours clear gold with a transient white head. Aroma is a lot of grapefruit rind. Med body or nearly. Flavor is a lot of grapefruit rind, but there’s not a lot of caramel. Malt, but rather pale. Very interesting and unusual. It’s quite hoppy and bitter in the finish. Working very well for me.

RedSox2004 (1210) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Clear golden yellow with a solid two-finger head that left a smooth film and very nice lace. Big grapefruit aromas up front, with biscuity malts and strong pine note coming later. Taste is mostly hop bitterness, with enough of a doughy malt presence to create a nice balance, though the hops certainly win the day. Medium to full body, generous carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a crisp bitter finish.
