Delicate IPA. Soft citrus/pine nose. Well made, but soft. Some citrus and pine, well balanced with caramel and toffee. Easy drinking.

12 oz bottle from a friend. Light amber pour with a small head. Aroma is very nice with fruity hops - pine, grapefruit, mango, pineapple and a very nice maltiness, crusty and crispy. Taste is nice and bitter, grapefruit, pineapple, nice crispy maltiness - I really like the malt profile in this one. Good stuff

I had this on draft at Karl Strauss in Costa Mesa. This IPA has good grapefruit and floral notes that are nicely balanced by the malts.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dirty gold color with a thin off-white head on top. Caramel and resin dominate the scent with toffee and biscuity notes joining in. Not bad at all but I wasn’t overly thrilled with this one. There’s some sharp bitter citrus hops but the malt bill seems too heavy, with quite a bit of grain and caramel. Dry and bitter in the finish with a lot of lingering malt.

This beer reminded me why i don’t chew on grapefruit peel. They’re bitter, without any citrus flavor left. The beer wasn’t terribly bitter though. And I’m sure its high in vitamin C too, right?

355ml bottle. Great IPA and a good story behind the name. Lots of piney citrus hop notes and flavours with a full hopped up mouthfeel. Mild bitterness with lots of pine on the palate.
