Lovely. Amber pour with a dense white head. Body is incredibly rich and creamy. Starts out sweetish with grapefruit and hay, nice malt backbone. Ends up very dry and moderately bitter.

20.08.2015, tap @ BrewDog Barcelona:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly concentrated grassy, leafs, caramel malts, lawn, hops, dried fruits, pine needles, citrus peel, moss, hay. Taste is slightly dry, weeds, old leafs, hay, light malts, citrus peel, moss, pine needles, lawn. Medium to longlasting bitterness, slightly dry and kind of watery mouthfeel. Fair enough.

12oz bottle: Aroma has got a spicy hop characteristic with a little of the nutty malt poking through. Appearance is a Amber pour with a thick white head that diminishes slowly. Taste has got upfront spicy resin laden hop textures with a nicely bitter note, and no real malts that are noticeable with the sampling. Palate has a medium body, somewhat sticky texture and a slightly bitter finish. Overall, decent IPA but nothing to write home about. Cheers!

Light medium citrus hops smell, taste isn’t too hoppy but approaching at first, then mellows out... Citrus throughout, quite good strength

maybe not the freshest...muted citrusy aroma and flavor, a touch too malty, but still ok. Not something I’ll go back to unless fresh at the source.

An okay IPA. A bit too unbalanced on the bitter side for me. Plenty of grapefruit and pine hops.

Nice IPA, had on draft July 22 at Wahoo's. Light scent with a nice golden color, local from San Clemente, nice IPA taste without any big aftertaste, a good west coast IPA

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden colour.
Aroma. faint aroma, of pine and a bit of stone fruit.
Taste. Grapefruit on entry, followed by some nice stone fruit flavours with a piney bitterness throughout.
Overall. A solid ipa full of flavour and bitterness, definitely one for the seasoned drinker.
