My favorite of the Golden Road beers. Good IPA, a bit light on the hops but has a full profile.

On tap at Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours golden with a thick off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with lots of hop bitterness. Nice.

Can thanks to Caspar. It pours pale gold with a decent white head. The nose is fresh tropical fruits, citrus, toasted grain, grass and white bread. The taste is bitter, piney, resin, varnish, icing sugar, some alcohol, citrus rind, creamy and toasty grass with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not bad.

I'll give credit to LA folk for dropping some Latin knowledge. I took two years of Spanish in high school so estoy un experto en Latino.

Golden-orange pour with a white head. The aroma has some heavy mango, orange and grapefruit notes. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of fruit notes with some mango notes coming through the strongest. I also get some biscuit malt and a medium amount of bitterness. This one is fairly boozy. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Thanks to Wittales in local 3.14 swap. Pours a chill hazed golden yellow from the can with bubbly white head that dissipates to leave light lace. Aroma is resinous citrus and grapefruit hops. Taste follows, a nice hint of pale malt behind and dank hops over the top. Mild carbonation, lasting bitterness, solid west coast IPA.
