Malted banana nose. Initial taste is light and fruity turns sharply to dry citrus rind in the mouth after multiple tastings. Any extra points for the nifty kraft packaging were immediately negated by the poor can design. Seems to be a theme here.

16 oz can from shop in LA. This beer is very middle of the road for an IPA in many ways. Still, I think that is what is sets out to be. An enjoyable, hoppy sessionable IPA in a highly transportable can. Nothing that will blow your mind, but good for tailgating, camping, or as a 2nd or 3rd + beer of the evening. If those are your expectations, this beer will serve you well.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Found in a rinky dink liquor store right by LAX during a recent business trip. Tropical fruit and citrus aroma. Mango, banana, grapefruit notes as well. Pale amber, dark golden color with a thin soapy head. Toasty malt and citrus notes. Muted after taste of mint and pine. Overall, almost a bit like a pale ale, not exactly a west coast style IPA. Tasty though! Iíll be looking for it next time Iím in LA. And not that it matters but i like the can design. It looks very LA with the palm trees.

Pours clear amber with a finger of head and good retention. Pine, passion fruit, and a brassy citrus note on the nose. Flavors are muted citrus, bread, bitter hop finish that lingers. Crisp champagne carbonation and a dry mouthfeel.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
This brewery is more concerned with making high volume beer and not high quality and taste. The beer lacks good body content and hop finish, compared to other beers in the same price point. Would not buy this if other choice available.

Bright yet dry, just as advertised. Had this in the airport at LAX, loving the local brew, good for what it is but not great!
