Bottled. Color is a beautiful clear copper with fat lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, rum cake, butterscotch and pine resin. Flavor is flat and straightforward with medium bitterness and a strong toasted malt note. Definitely one of the more malt-heavy IPAs you will find in San Diego County. Not enough of the alpha acids to counteract the caramel, but enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from purvis beer. Hazy copper colour. Seen other reviews referring to this beer as clear so not sure whats going on there. Nice hoppy caramel nose. Plenty of hop bitterness, but also somewhat surprisingly a fair proportion of sweet malt. Yes, the mouthfeel is thin, but in the words of Monty Burns, I know what I hate, and I don’t hate this.

Clear golden/orange pour with a thin white head and light sticky lacing .... Aroma of caramel malts, light piney hops and orange ..... Taste is of toasted and chewy caramel malts, piney and citrusy hops mostly orange and light grapefruit .... Finish is dry and malty with a resinous hop that lingers for a bit .... Average IPA for an area with so many winners

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle; dark caramel-orange pour with a fairly white head. Aroma of pine, earth, citrus, a good dose of caramel and slightly sugary sweetness. Flavor was maltier than expected; a good dose of caramel and some sugary sweetness in finish. Hoppiness creeps in a bit. A bit too malty.
