3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled; picked up randomly from Vons in my local neighborhood. Just heard about this brewery not too long ago. The color is a toasted gold, with a beautiful frothy white head developing on the pour. Lots of lacing. Medium to high carbonation. Aroma is soil, hay and toast with a slight hint of citrus acidity. Flavor cuts to the chase with a straightforward undertone of toast and caramel malt followed by grapefruit and more hay/grass. Very simple with one hop variety. FInish is dry and quick. Nothing to write home about, but hands down a pleasurable easy drinking single IPA.

Pours a hazy orange with a 1.5 finger head. Nice floral and citrus notes on the nose. Flavor matches aroma, and a bit of malty sweetness. Good IPA if you aren’t into overly bitter beers.

Draft. Cloudy dark amber. Small white head. Medium body. Pretty high bitterness. Pretty densely hopped. Resin. Rind. Kinda overboard, not super drinkable.

Flaske: Orangerød diset med et flot skumhoved. Duft af Lagunitas skulle jeg til at sige, men det er det jo ikke. Smagen sidder i skabet for en IPA. Lækker øl.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours amber orange with a white head. Sweet malty base, with some fruity citric hops and moderate bitterness. Balanced and drinkable, but nothing too special.

bomber pours orange amber, thin off white head whom’s lacing completely covers my cheater pint. Nose is subtle of citrus, some malt. Taste begins with light gentle malt sweetness. This is lightly washed away by some bitterness, oranges, tangerine. body is light to medium. Overall all pretty decent, a nice change of pace from some of the normal face melting bitter bombs.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bold and zingy IPA with snappy citrus and a grassy bitterness. More malt-forward (and sticky) than I like, but it did help to balance out the aggressive hops.

22 oz bomber with no sell by date, which bums me out. i do not understand why a brewer of an IPA this good would not put a bottled on or a sell by date. This is especially important because I thought the bomber I had was past its prime. I still noticed a nice clear citrusy hop flavor, but there is a slightly "off" earthy, cheesy note that I believe indicates the bottle sat around too long. I would love to travel to the brewery and have this on tap. I will re-rate if i can.

Great IPA! IPA’s are so prevalent now it’s like they are just regular beer now. This one is pretty awesome. Uber clear, beautifully bright, ruddy copper pour. Gigantic seafoam head with exquisite lacing. Fresh tangerines and caramel malt are dominant in the aroma. Nice nuances of grapefruit and lime zest also show up in the appropriately bitter flavor. Definitely hops forward, but skillfully balanced by plenty of malty goodness. Medium body, great carb, superb mouthfeel, and a wonderfully dry finish. I am reminded of a honey-glazed orange/grapefruit upside-down cake garnished with lime leaves. Fantastic IPA.
