(En fût au Toronado SD): Oignons, agrumes et pêches enveloppés dans un voile minéral et gazonné. La texture est propice à l’engouffrabilité. Très juteux et sec, superbe.

Pour on tap at the brewery, clear golden pour with thin white head, aroma brought big orange peel, grapefruit, some slight mango into a bit of pine, slight toasted bread, biscuit. Taste was a mix of orange, grapefruit, pine and a slight tropical fruit into some bread, toast, finishing with some slight sweetness, fairly bitter.

Tap @ brewpub. Golden pour with a froth of white foam. Balanced pine and bitterness with some light citrus and moderate bready malt in the aroma. Taste is bready malt with pine and bitterness. Clean, slightly airy mouthfeel. Great balance of bitterness and malt. Excellent.

Type: Draft Glass: Half-pint glass From: Hollister Brewing Company in Goleta, Calif. Price: $3.25 Purchased: July 5, 2013 Consumed: July 5, 2013 Misc.: N/A Poured a honey amber clear color with 1-2 fingers of off-white head when I got it. That head wore off quickly. Pretty good lacing along the sides. Average retention on the way down. Smelled tons of hops. Got lime, pine, citrus, caramel and floral, all in a clean, light whiff. Initial taste reminded me of a Manzanita IPA. Caramel, lime, pine, floral hops and citrus hops. Medium body. Creamy-to-oily texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish. This beer wasn’t as quite as good as I remember it from December, but I was sick then. But overall it is an OK IPA.

thome50 (1285) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden. Aroma is belgian and banana with enough hops to know it is there. This really tastes more like a belgian IPA which isn’t my thing. Sweetness and banana again come into play. Very slight Belgian but almost hurts in a very bad way.

Wow yet another hoppy beer from Hollister. Yellowish/gold pour. Grapefruit peel and resinout hops up front, some mango notes. Flavor is hoppy, bitter, fruit, tropical. Caramel malt balances it a bit.
