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.

Pours an orange colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, pine, citrus and hops. Taste is medium sweet of fruit leading to a hoppy finish. Pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale amber with a white head. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel, grass, pepper. Clean and sweet with mandarins, grapefruit, a little pepper. Moderate to high bitterness, dries out a little. Some pine at the end. Pleasant enough but rather anonymous.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cool label on a 12 oz longneck. Clear, citrine beer, not much head. Grainy, dry malt aroma with some toast and light florality. Biscuity, and really comes off as a plain old pale ale. Moderate bitterness, not much fruit, not very acidic. Crisp finish, crackery aftertaste. A good summer IPA. Lazy Dog Growler, Warner Robins, GA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle. Pale golden with one finger head. Very light body. I’m not sure what hops there are, but they’re pretty unique. More spicy and peppery than bitter.

Fine IPA, but not unusual, especially at premium price to local MI brews. Glad to have Left Coast in MI, but have nothing unique yet.

12 oz bottle. Really good even if it is on the stale side. Pours a lightish orange/copper with hints of a white head. What can I say- tastes like the west coast. Makes me want to head west with a longboard. Lots of pine, citrus (grapefruit!) and hint of spice and grassy notes on the palate. Decent dankness and resiny quality- slightly oily in the mouth. Malts on the sweet/ biscuity side, but pretty well balanced overall by bittering hops. Slightly astringent. Totally solid and totally west coast.
