A nice I P A that's readily available everywhere in SoCal. Citrus notes in aroma and VERY hoppy with beautiful lacing. Not quite in the class of Stone I P A or Racer 5, but still very good. Enjoy!

Good balance for first 1/3, but the bitterness come strong later.should be nice to drink when hot and thirsty. And not to wait until its get to the room temperature.

A- Pours a deep, cloudy orange hue with a 1.5 finger, frothy head that fades with quite a bit of lacing.
S- Very grainy, caramel, slight hints of grassiness.
T- Starts off very bready which leads into a wave of hops and a nice, crisp, bitter finish.
M- Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation.
D- A refreshing IPA. Doesn’t stand out a whole lot but I would revisit.
