2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle - Gusher. Once it settles down, pours clear copper with a foamy light tan head. Nose is sweet caramel, a bit of bourbon twang, and some heavy bread malt. Taste is the same. Super sweet and caramelly, with spicy bread malt, nuttiness, and a little herbal hopping. Thick and slick with ample carbonation. Very little hopping to speak of. No bottle date on the neck where apparently it’s supposed to be. Man, West Coast IPAs turn into absolute shit when they’re (probably old), I’ve had my fair share of bombs, though there’s no way to tell the age on this one.

TAP. Cloudy orange pour with thick white head. Citrus hops on the nose. Heavy malts up front flowing into a sticky toffee, ending with a hoppy bitter back end.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. So much foam that it ran out of the bottle when opened and poured very tall head in a mug. Cloudy light amber color. Taste is light, a little fruity, with clean hops. Not as much hops as many IPAs, which is refreshing if you’re not a huge fan of IPAs. Excellent and approachable brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
An IPA that’s a bit on the lighter side, in color, body and happiness. Resinous hop aroma and taste, a bit of metallic taste at the finish. Some light citrus notes also. Not bad, but surprised to see it 96.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Probably a good overall IPA but too sweet for me. Not very hoppy but nice to support the surfing brewmasters.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper orange, thin but sturdy white head. Smells like caramel and pine, taste is pretty sweet up front with a caramel, piney, citrus flavor. Seems to lean a bit towards the the sweeter side of the IPA spectrum, but pretty tasty.
