On draft at Tap 25. It pours a lightly hazed dark orange color with an off white head. The aroma is strong with florals, orange, peach and mango. Fruity and complex. The flavor is full bodied with some caramel, dank, flowers, pineapple and mandarin orange. A little menthol and lemon cleaning fluid in the finish. Not bad.

On tap @ Stone Liberty Station. Clear orange/amber pour with a white head. Super floral and fragrant. A lot of peach and orange preserves. Flavor has a slight soapiness to it and a lot of flowers, spice, and orange. A hint of cranberry, too. Bitter grapefruit and orange rinds. Sort of sweet and malty, but not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Monkey Paw: Poured a clear golden liquid with a frothy layer of head that eventually broke down leaving the beer naked. The aroma is impossible to smell due to the noisy, smelly, and cramped atmosphere. The drink makes up for that emptiness in the nose by delivering a semi-bitter taste of hops that reminds me of an extra pale ale more than it does an IPA. Overall pretty standard for the style while being easily quaffable.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft into a pint glass at Monkey Paw Pub and Brewery on Aug. 26, 2012 ( for $4.50) in San Diego, Calif. Poured a hazy orange with thick, white head. Good wet, foamy retention all around
Smelled citrus hops, mainly lemon and grapefruit. Also some sweet floral notes. Good whiff overall.
Taste reminded me of Manzanita’s IPA. Very bitter. Light citrus hops, grapefruit, lemon zest and orange peel.
Light-to-medium body. Thinner, but somewhat creamy finish. Above average-to-average carbonation. Long, bitter finish.
A decent IPA, but not great. I’d probably try it again, though.
