Good retention with some decent lacing. Smells of citrus fruits, hops and sweet malt. Tastes of grapefruit and some pine. Finishes with a mild bitterness.

Not terrible, but totally average. Mild aromatics and very lean, with an almost thin character to it. With all the IPAs in California, Iíll pass.

Beer pours a golden yellow color with a small head. It has some mild fruits in the nose with some malts. Taste is a little watered down. Mild fruits with a little bit of bread. Not too good.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can via trade. Slightly hazy light orange with a moderate white head. Excellent lacing. Grainy aroma. Kinda weird. Slightly grassy. Taste is also more malt balanced than hops. Slightly bitter. Low to medium grassy hop flavor. Clean finish. Just ok.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can pours a fairly clear light orange color. Aroma is a little funky, not in a good way, kind of old and vegetal. Doesnít come through in the flavor. Grainy, malty up front followed by a light hop character and mild bitterness.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2014 Average at best. Tasted stronger/better from the can than from the tap at Golden Roadís restaurant. Very little carbonation. With so many IPAís available, this one doesnít do much to distinguish itself.

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.
