Got this from a friend. Aroma is orange and pine. Flavors are citrus, orange, pine, and a tiny bit of caramel. Overall a decent beer, itís actually quite sweet. Not a lot of balance.

On draft at the Livermore Saloon. It pours golden with a white head. The aroma is toffee with light notes of tropical fruit and citrus .The flavor is full and creamy with some toffee-like maltiness and big tropical fruit, spice and citrus. Pretty good, but a bit on the sweet side.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can from Bine & Vine. Pours dark gold with a slight white head. Aroma seems light stone fruit. Very juicy. Med body. Nice caramel and stone fruit juicy hop. Mild hop burn - getting stronger. Thereís firm flavor, lots of hop, and itís finishing very bitter. Nothing to not like here. After awhile Iím thinking citrus. No reason to change the rating just cause the ale changes with time. Good stuff.

Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy orange pour with thin white head, aroma is big dank, weedy hops, slight orange, hints of grapefruit into some grass, spice, and yeast, slightly earthy as well, caramel balances with sweetness. Taste is a mix of toffee and caramel with some orange, grapefruit, into big dank hops, slight earthy tones, finishing fairly bitter, dry.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can poured to tulip glass. Got in a trade, bottled July 27 so getting past itís prime. Pours golden color. Minimal head or lacing. Nose is light grapefruit and pine. Taste follows aroma. Smooth drinking and not real hoppy, malt is well balanced by the hops. The 8% abv is not evident. Not outstanding or complex, but drinkable and tasty

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This IPA needs to get a few more practice swings in. The hoppiness feels like it has a muzzle on. The mouthfeel rings like a lager. The scent is void of that floral intensity. With all of the far superior west coast IPAs out there, this LA product can be shelved with little further assessment.
