Had this a million times. Not sure why I didn’t rate it. Solid IPA I get often. Draft at barleycorn. Clear and orange pour. White head. Peach floral aroma. Taste is mild hops, bitter, bubblegum and fruit. Very good

From a bottle into a tulip - cloudy orange with a thin white head. Aroma is very subtle citrus and hops (typical CA IPA). Taste starts sweet, then some malt to balance, then some light bitter hops in the aftertaste. Very clean and fresh tasting (well, it is local). At 6.2%, this is what Sierra Nevada Pale Ale was a few years ago - the go-to mainstay that people that don’t prefer IPAs enjoy and go for. For example, my 70-year old uke-playing neighbor that only drinks Longboard Lager says this is the best hoppy beer out there by far.

I know people really like this but I thought it was way too hoppy. But, that’s just my opinion! Love the bottle though.
