Fair at best. Some hop aroma nothing to write home about. Lean and straw flavor. Not a drain pour though.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours deep amber orange. Head is frothy cream. Aroma of caramel and toffee malts and pine/citrus hops. Taste is smooth with big caramel and toffee malts. Hops are citrus and piney. A little floral and spice on finish. Mouthfeel is medium-oily. Nice drink. Not quite a great example of IPA, but smooth and delicious.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the brewery on 3/21/2013. This IPA pours a medium orange gold color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, slightly hoppy. A medium to light bodied IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy and fruity, some pineapple and floral, Decent carbonation. The bitterness is not in your face, but its there and lingers a long while. Nice use of the Matueka hop, nice grapefruit and pineapple flavor. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

On tap at The Local in San Diego. Pours a deep orange with minimal head. Nose shows grapefruit, pine, caramel and hint of toffee. Taste is quite thick and syrupy. Lots of toffee and caramel dominate up front, bit of pine comes along with the slight bitter finish. Solid but was expecting something a little more fruity.

Split this beer with my Dad after a day of working to finish our basement. Was a bit of a gusher when popped. Poured dark for style with big, bit white head. Scent was earthy pine. Hops seemed a bit faded. Received bottle in trade, hence, no way to verify freshness. Bottle - Received in Trade
