This pours as a amber with an orange hue to it. it is a bit cloudy. The head is actually kind of peach in color. It actually has a bit of a caramel smell mixed with the citrus. There are apricot flavors that dominate the flavor with other hops and malts. It is not as bitter as must brews in this category.

Bright orange draft pour at 99 bottles of beer on the wall, in Santa Cruz. Orange and tangerine, ripe fruit and tropical. Good. And little dank fruit.

6 pack with Indian food. Decent, booze sneaks up on you. This one is all west coast- piney, resin, slick, citrus and tropical with caramel malts in the background. Not jumping up and down about this one, but I didn’t stop after one.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazed amber colored liquid with a moderate head of small beige bubbles. Decent lace. Grains and citric scents along with hints of butterscotch and ripe fruit. Very malty flavors. Bitterness is more acidic. Full bodied. I would consider this more English in nature with the amount of malt and less grapefruit flavors. Solid, but it has a few rough edges.

Tasted on tap at King’s Highway in the Ace Hotel. It poured a murky Amber hue with a frothy off-white head and heavy lacing. Bold grapfruit hop aroma that writes the check that the taste has to cash, and it does. Nice brew to enjoy after enjoying an entertaining Super Bowl.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
At just on cool and into a chalice. Misty deep amber with a good dose of sea monkeys caught in suspension. Head is up then falls short to settle a sheer island of white. Nose hints at figs, raisins, dried apricot, sticky bark, stewed rhubarb and sappy resin with a perfumed musk and poking tickle of higher alcohol - thick and tantalising. Slightly metallic edge to a flawless, smooth malt and hop offering. Rose petals dominate but there is a monster of a bitter bite that lasts on the palate with a ferocity that I’ve never seen. Big, spicy alcohol hit melds in well. Body is light but it has a good viscosity to it giving it great legs. Like being drowned in grandmothers rose garden. Light oatcake, light dusty malt, light honey smack cereal - everything fades under the hops. Really mouthfilling. Mandarin and the apricot of the nose, some of the stewed rhubarb and plenty of sappy resin form the palate to full. This is a melter of a IIPA. Really had me contemplating liking it whilst kicking me is the arse, saying ’damn straight you like it!’ (12fl.Oz, no date stamp, Int’l Beer Shop, Leederville)
