Draft. Aroma is a little sweeter than their Kismet, but still has enough hoppy presence for an IPA. Mostly candid citrus with just enough grapefruit and resin and finished with a nice toffee sweetness. Flavor it’s extremely balanced. Grapefruit rind finishes a very toffee-like first impression. Very sticky and full-bodied. But sure I’d call this a session ipa, but it’s a very good beer

650 ml bottle. Pours a translucent amber-copper color with a mid sized off-white head that has very good retention. The aroma is strong with resins, oranges, grapefruit and a touch of toffee. The flavor mirrors the nose, more oranges, grapefruit and resins set in toffee malt base. The palate is full, smooth and seemed a bit heavy--carbonation is lively. Finishes medium in duration with lingering bitter pine resins. Overall: Decent IPA, will drink again.

Taster at downtown Vista tasting room. Pours a orange yellow with a small off white head. Aroma is of citrus, pine, tropical fruits, and some sweet malts. Taste is similar and also includes some white wine grape notes and has a lot of pineapple flavor. Has a medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and a dry, well hopped, long finish. overall, a nice, hoppy, sessionable IPA from the ever improving Mother Earth.

Pours hazy orange/yellow with a medium sized white head that leaves spider web lace. Smells good sweet and hoppy. Building sweet citrus flavors. Tastes a little underwhelming. Nice and hoppy, bitter/sweet and relatively clean, slightly watery. Light body, good carbonation.

On tap at brewery, a nice addition to the west coast style of IPA’a. Good carbonation, a lot of hop taste in the finish. It is a session IPA at only 6 percent so you can drink it all day! Good.
