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.

bhensonb (11045) - 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.

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.

GT2 (8425) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Tap at Venice Ale House. Glowing, light yellow pour with a medium, semi-rocky head leaving good layered lace. Nose is squashy, cheesy, a bit vegetal with parsnip and broccoli. Taste is white pepper, melon, sugar, dense rindy grapefruit. Lactic, fully bitter finish. Really all around save for cheesy, vegetal nose. Would be ~3.7 IPA without the DMS like flaws.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Canned July 1st, 2013. Pours with a crystal clear straw yellow hued body with a large white head. Nice hue for an IPA (read: not orange to amber). Aromas are of citrus, resin, light pine, mildly spicy, dank, tangelo, low c15 to carapils type malt. Some grassy qualities. Clean fermentation. Flavors are medium bitter, light malt, lots of tropical fruit, citrus and tangerine. Tastes a bit like a Drake’s IPA. Some grassy to resiny dry hop finish. Fruity hop profile, clean ester wise. Dry, low malt. Medium lively carbonation, lower body. Solid IPA from Golden Road, I could drink a few of these!

Scopey (6812) - 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.

16oz can. Clear golden color with white head. Nice spicy, skanky, citrusy, dusty pale malt aromas. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Big grapefruit rind, citrusy, spicy hoppy flavors in a dry cracker malt base brew____medium bitterness throughout----nicely drying bitter finish---tasty.

Thanks to jdurdz for sharing this can. Clear golden pour with a white head. The aroma has some heavy pine and orange citrus notes as well as some biscuit malt. The flavor is more of the same. I get some nice bitter orange and resinous pine notes as well as some sweet biscuit malt. Medium bitterness and lots of hop flavor. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

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