3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 22 oz. Clear golden with a frothy, slowly diminishing white head, nice lace. Nose is toasted malty and hoppy with resin, pine, spruce, ripe peach, orange. Flavor is light to medium sweet malty with a herbal, peachy and resiny hoppy, medium bitter finish. Medium body, average carbonation. Ok, definitely not bad but not fab either - a little dusty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
This predictable West Coast IPA presents citrusy hop resins and sandy allusions in a lean and very drinkable vehicle.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the misty golden.
-This one doesn’t seem to have any personality; it’s’just another’ very good IPA from California.
-Carbonation was very low in this pint. Probably the bar’s fault as the same could be said of nearly all brews we had that evening.
-Malts offered light honey flavors.
On tap at Devil Craft, Tokyo.
