3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Has a nice amber color with a a frothy top that is a creamy color. Has a hop aroma but smells a bit tart. It has a strong tart/bitter taste and leaves a bad aftertaste and feel on the tongue.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Grapefruit aroma, average carbonation. Very well finished medium hoppy IPA. Slightly bitter finish. Unlike the current trend of IPAs that try to beguile you with mega hops and high ABV, this one is balanced and very drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aromas of pine, peach, and citrus. Pours cloudy yellow with a mild head that fades, carbonation carries it onward via my snifters etches. Flavor is more pine, sweet citrus, with a mild bitter finish. Smooth in the mouth with good subtlety.

A simple and refreshing West coast IPA. Not boring but nothing out of the ordinary other than it’s a great tasting beer.
