4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
lemme start this off by saying to you fellow raters: if youíre getting a bottle of this - and im talking to you folks that are overseas - and youíre stating thatís itís golden amber in color, or hazy golden, then youíve got a sample thatís probably not fresh. when fresh either via bottle or on tap this is a copper golden color leaning more to the copper. typically im not a huge green flash drinker but this one definitly ticks the boxes; creamy, bracingly bitter with excellent grapefruit, pine and resin. not too sweet but there is a nice bit of malt present though hops are the dominant player here. well done.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Overall a very nice double IPA with itís classic west coast tropical fruit characteristics. I liked the old one better. This one has a bit too much sweetness and alcohol presence for my taste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Yard House Irvine. Golden pour with white foam. Nose is fairly resinous and piney. A lot of caramel and honey, though. Floral hops, some orange, and grapefruit. Eh. Flavor is kind of sweet and malty. Intense piney bitterness. Some grass, orange, and grapefruit peel. A somewhat chalky note, too. Maybe some peach.

Pours murky golden with a thin tan head with good legs. Nose is caramel, floral hops, a little citrus hops. Flavor is malt forward with a very bitter finish and a bitter aftertaste. There is a little metallic flavor in there for me. Mouthfeel is creamy and a little oily.
