3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle: Pours a clear orange amber with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet toasty malty nose with a fresh resiny hop character. Starts with decent fullness and light malty sweetness along with a perfumy bittering hop balance before a drier bittersweet finish. A decent IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Half liter bottle pours clear copper with tan head. The aroma is both floral and spicy with hops and a bit grainy with malts and orange flavored hard candy as well. The taste has a nice load of spicy hops ringed with ribbons of floral and citrus like hops. Well off in the background are notes of sweet maltiness. This brew achieves a nice balance of bitter and floral hops. If you enjoy floral hop nuanced IPA then this one is for you.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Light amber, off white head. Nice citrus but mellow, hops, bit of bread/yeast. Somewhat bitter, great carbonation, medium bodied, slight sweetness with a bitter twang on the end. I thought this was a very well balanced beers and overall a very nice laid back IPA - worth seeking out.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle purchased at BevMo in Natomas, CA. The aroma is a little spicy and herbal. Sweet, sugary malty aromatics are also present. I also get some onion in this. Mildly hazy orange body with a pretty strong off-yellow head. Starts spicy and herbal. Moderately bitter. A little toasted maltiness in the middle, before there is an herbal hoppiness late. Not bad. Just sort of okay.
