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!

Great canned offering! 16oz pint can pours golden with a white head. Solid west coast IPA without being to overpowering. More hop than malt. Pine then citrus. 5.9% makes it very easy to enjoy a few.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. It pours a lightly hazy, golden body and a dense, finger-thick white head. The aroma is sweetish and fruity, peaches and pine cones spring to mind. Drier on the palate than expected, luckily, but there’s some sweetness going on. Nice bitterness too, and both pine cones and tropical fruits in the flavor. Medium body, with pleasant carbonation. Mostly bitter finish, with the tropical fruits chiming in. Dry. A decent beer indeed, and definitely worth the price at less than two dollars. 130805

From the can, shared by Nyby at a bottle share. Nose is dry pine and hops, with some citrus. Flavor is pine forward with hop bitterness balance, and only a minor malt presence. Not bad, would happily drink this one again.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Glassware: New Belgium Chalice Glass
Aroma: Smells of pine, kind of bitter.
TAste: Very resinous, orange peel, lemon bitter punch.
Overall: For a canned IPA, I was pleasantly surprised by this and this seems like the kind of beer you take to a park/beach/forest on a hot relaxing day.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aluminum can from Sprout’s: Created a thick pillow of foamy white head that left behind fair share of lacing down the glass. Liquid appeared a hazy gold liquid that had tons of sediment floating in equilibrium. Aroma had some obvious smells of hops but not enough to strike up my curiosity into actually tasting this beer. The drink is bitter and has a strong flavor of orange peel with a dash of bitter lime or lemon zest which proves to be more promising than my nose lead me to believe. I actually sort of like the bitter sweet soury tart flavors this IPA delivers and felt the price paid was reasonable. Would like to taste this fresh on tap one day.
