Relatively mild, malty double IPA. Hops are mostly citrus, but quite a bit more restrained than I would prefer. Solid mouthfeel, otherwise just OK.

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

marcus (6357) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 21, 2014
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 shared in London - thanks to Caspar. Pours clear yellow with a creamy white head. Pleasant nose, rich citrus, melon and grapefruit. Medium sweet flavor with moderate bitter grass, pine, some white sugar, oil. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming to finish, oily and resinous, moderately sweet, more ripe citrus, melon. Solid.

Scopey (6315) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2014
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.

Wittales (622) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Appearance was clear orangish gold with lasting creamy white 1 finger head, rings of lacing. Aromas are soft sweet malts, tropical, citrus and stone fruit with hints of pine, no alcohol. Taste are orange, lemon, peach, guava and melon with middle malt sweetness and pine. Palate was creamy smooth CO2 with medium body, then lasting well balanced smooth bitter finish. A good solid DIPA from LA.

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.

Mora2000 (5568) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUN 5, 2014
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.
