Nice and pleasant IPA. From bomber, poured hazy gold and small head. Not much of an aroma. Very hop forward but not over powering like a lot of IPA’s now a days. Goes down nice, smooth and refreshing. Gently surprised by this one and it furthers cements San Diego’s place in the craft beer world.

Poured from a bomber picked up at Total wine in glendale AZ.
Aroma - slight tropical notes. Definitely has some good aromas, but not overwhelming.
Taste - very unique tastes. Most front of the tongue beer I’ve had in a while.
Overall - a good beer, not sure I need to have it again anytime soon.

smell peppery hops from a cloudy golden body with a foamy white head, hoppy pine cone flavour too bitterly dry for me.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a lightly hazy golden orange with a big huge frothy white head. Aroma is a beautiful blend of pine, citrus hops, grapefruit, light caramel and sweet pale malts. Taste is pine, grapefruit, citrus fruits, bitter orange peel, sweet pale malts and a light vegetal flavor with a balanced bitterness. The vegetal flavor gives it a weird unfavorable finish but it’s not too bad... Get rid of this and this ipa is easily a 4.5.

Tap på Bishops arms Hornstull. Dimmig guldfärgad vätska med hyfsat tjockt skum som hänger kvar. Frisk tropisk doft med maltig kropp. Fruktig frisk när den kommer in i munnen men övergår snabbt till en maltig tallbarskänsla ala dubbelipa. Smarrig

Pours cloudy golden, small head. Smells hoppy and kind of malty. Tastes much the same. Surprising weak taste for an IPA. Very small bitter, malty flavor at same level as malty level. A decent beer, I found it to be ok.
Came from a quart can.
