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

16oz can pours with a crystal clear pure gold body that supports a dirty white head of foam. The aroma offers up soft cantaloupe and mango and then pulling into ripe clementine and faint spicy onion dankness. The taste starts with a pleasing modest rush of cantaloupe and tangerine and bits of mango where the flavor is split down the middle with bitter and juicy hoppiness. To midway it picks up faint citrus and spicy dank hop bitterness and some resiny almost pine hop like notes. Toward the finish just a murmur of sweet malts is noticed amid the tasty hoppiness. This has nice depth and balance and crisp hoppiness. Pretty solid.

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.

"I love Citra and Centennial hops, so not a surprise I loved this brew. A shot of citrus in the nose, with a soft easy drinking feel and wonderful spicy citrus flavor, with more complexity rhan expected. Solid enough to pack some home."

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

Can - hazy yellow gold colour with a slim white head. Nice juicy fruity citrus hoppy aroma. Initial taste is nice with big hoppy flavours, nice hoppy bitter finish. Nice smooth, medium mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. Really like this.

On tap at Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours Golden with a clinging white head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with some pretty bitter earthy hoppiness from down under. A nice brew.

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.

RedSox2004 (1436) - 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.
