On tap at the brewpub. It pours clear golden with a small off white head.the aroma is big tropical fruit with hints of peaches, mango, orange and only hints of pine. The flavor is drier with a bigger than anticipated bitter finish. Lots of pine with some bread and caramel malt. Some grapefruit and citrus peel as well. Pretty nice ipa.

tap @ San Diego Brew Co. Pours a lightly hazed deep gold with a frothy white head that left some great lacing. Great nose of fresh citrus hops and light grain. Flavor was a little more grainy with not much bitterness. I could have sat and smelled this beer all day.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Moylan’s. Medium amber orange with a one finger off-white creamy head, cask retention. Plenty of bright citrus hops before the head faded, then harder to nose--then it turned more orangey with some herbal dry hops. Flavor follows suit with plenty of orangey citrus dry hopped herbalness, hints of pine behind. The sweet caramel malt plays with the orange well, though I could almost see it being too much due to not a ton of buffering hops. Bitterness peaked at a 3 in the finish, lightly piney. Light to medium body with cask carbonation. Pretty good.
