3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours light amber with a creamy beige head. Strong citrus/resin aroma. Med body. Sweet caramel with enough resin and perhaps citrus to start a slow hop burn. Gets a little earthy with time. Finishes dryish and hoppy - tho not bitingly bitter. Nice IPA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. The aroma has nice grapefruit, zest, resin, and grassy hops light caramel and toasted malts. The flavor loses much of the character from the nose and shows a very general bitterness, grass, toasted bready malts and earth. Nose is much better than the flavor.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks good; a transparent golden orange with foamy white head that dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells and tastes solid; nice and hoppy with a well-balanced light-bodied pale malt backbone. Good on the palate. Good beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and dispensed to a shaker displaying a clear & bright, deep golden color, with a decent layer of off white/light tan head foam that gradually reduced to a ring & film, but left some clingy, patchy, web-like lacing. The nose was perfumey citrus as grapefruit, some pine, a touch of sweetness, and some tropical scent as pineapple. The flavor then presented an earthy, tanniny, hop bitterness that was hefty, very lingering, but not biting at all, and under control by the solid malt content. Good carbonation and a more than medium body, as the bitterness seemed to contribute an added sense of fullness to the palate. An IPA+.

On tap at Monk?s Kettle, SF. Pours a golden orange with plenty of? head. Thin aroma. My cheeks filled with hop flavor... which promptly dissolved on my tongue. Faint malts, very faint. Mega-dry. Pretty interesting. Hot weather IPA.
