Draft to taster at Kuhnhenn. Looks good for the style; a transparent gold with foamy white head. Smells solid; juicy hops with a touch of sweetness from the pale malt. Tastes like it smells with a nice, light mouthfeel. A great SIPA.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap in a tulip at the Berkeley Front. Pours a clear pale yellow with a one finger white head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Lots of citrus in the nose with some apricot and minimal toffee. Taste is a bit more subdued than the nose with a moderate level of grapefruit bitterness throughout and enough sweet malt to balance. Mouth is on the light side but with a nice long dry finish. This is quite easy drinking.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reviewed from notes. Consumed June, 2013.
The appearance was a slightly clear yellow body, one finger white foamy head that lasts for a good full minute before dieing, moderate carbonation is seen rising.
The smell had zesty hops up front with a nice light citrusy punch trying to come through, light malt presence.
The taste was spicy yet somewhat sweet, light malt presence comes in there, spicy aftertaste, dry finish.
The palate sat about a light to medium, sessionable, adequate carbonation for the style and for me.
Overall, this is a good spicy AIPA that I would have again.
