Pours hazy light orange with a medium sized white head, sheet lace. Smells of earthy hops and green grass. Tastes pretty good. Nice, bitter, earthy hops up front with some nuttiness and malty sweetness toward the finish. Nice bitter brew with some nutty flavors. Medium body, good carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and shaker served with a hazed, orangy gold color, with a frothy and fairly persistent layer of soft white head foam, and decent, lasting cling to the tight, curtainy lacing. The aroma was expressive, juicy grapefruit, with some resin, and a touch of sweetness. The taste possessed a combination of citrusy tartness, and earthy, rindy, and very lingering "through the finish", hop bitterness. Good tempering malt to remove any sharp edges, and add a little fullness. Satisfying hop fix.

Draught. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate white head. Nose and taste are both very hoppy and bitter - there’s a hell of a bite to this beer that makes for a great IPA.

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.
