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.

GT2 (7870) - Carlsbad, 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 (7787) - 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!

11 Aug 2013, can. Yellow, clear, some steady bubbles. Nose is big piney hops. Thin body and moderately fizzy. Piney hops and slightly sweet bread malt. Nice enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Love to see craft beer teamed with a charity and this us a big bold and pine tree hoppy IPA. Getting some light floral hop notes and it doesn’t scrape the tongue. The pine bitterness takes center stage and I like it.

Ferris (2002) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 1, 2013
Draft - Heavy grapefruit on the nose. Clear gold with a rich head. Big up front grapefruit bitterness, followed by a dry resin. The huge bitterness lingers and is pleasant but unbalanced.nuts,

thome50 (884) - Boringville aka Irvine, California, USA - JUN 1, 2013
On tap at FWIBF. Pours a clear yellow/orange with white head. Aroma is citrus and some hay. Taste is citrus forward for sure. Some odd toffee though negates that. Still watery and thin. Not a horrible IPA but nothing special.

skmikeg (738) - Poway, California, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Pours a light orange with a small off white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, tropical fruits, and sweet malts. Taste is the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter finish. Overall, a pretty nice IPA.
