skmikeg (972) - Poway, California, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Pours a cloudy orange with a small white head with some lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, tropical fruits, sweet malts, and some dank weed. Taste is similar to the aroma with some sweet fruit notes and candied pine cone. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel, and a semi dry, moderately bitter, medium finish. Overall, a decent IPA that might just be a tad too sweet.
