Misc.: Enjoy by Aug. 20, 2015; Reviewing at the Courtyard Marriott in Culver City, Calif.
Poured a golden, honey, clear color with 4-to-5 fingers of rocky white head. Almost looked like dehydrated urine. Average amount of foamy, spotty lacing on the sides of the glass. Above average-to-good retention. (Sight - 3.88)
Smelled a great whiff of hops - Mosaic, floral and light Simcoe - caramel, buttery malts and faint grapefruit rind. (Smell - 4.13)
Tasted similar to the nose, getting those Mosaic, floral and light Simcoe hops, some Citra hops, and those caramel, buttery, earthy malts and slightly spoiled grapefruit rind. Took me awhile to figure out, but reminded me slightly of a Duet, so we’ll call it a poor man’s Duet.
(Taste - 4.00)
Light body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, slightly bitter finish. (Feel - 3.88)
This was a really good IPA overall. I’d have it again (and will with my other five in the 6-pack). (Overall - 4.00)

Fair IPA, not a great one but better character than their others. Some pineapple some citrus. Fairly good mouthfeel. Huge pillow cloud like rocky head. Could have hurt aroma.

Draft. Substantial apricot aroma. Soapy, wet lace. Flavors of guava, apricot, a hint of caramel, and then a water-cracker-dry finish. Superb. Subtle. Layered.
