Hop-forward throughout, this West Coast style ale hits the palate with layers of tangerine, honey, and rosemary that harmoniously unite into a big, resinous, lingering finish.

Pour is a clear orange with a large white head. Aroma is very nice fresh fruity hop. Blindfolded you would think you were actually smelling fruit juice. Flavor is again a big fruity hop with some chalky malt backbone. This was good stuff. Everything your looking for in a west coast IPA.

Drank on tap at trade show party in Anaheim. Bright citrus floral aroma. Taste was pleasantly hop forward. Lots of tangy citrus on top of a biscuit malt base. Very nice IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Marheb (2817) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 10, 2015
(Bue en fût sur place): Une mélange d’agrumes juteuses, d’herbes chlorophylliennes et de malts miellés. Une amertume farouche laisse percevoir des notes de thé qui se transforme en légère astringence au final.

From bottle to draft. Overt citrus and orange with slight pine. Beautiful clear orange with full white head. Taste is combination of solid orange and pine, with solid resins. Moderate high bitterness. Very enjoyable.

daknole (10041) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Copper pour, white head. A pretty nice mix of sweet malts and some citrus and resiny hops. Not overly hoppy or malts. Pretty well blalanced brew.

Bacterial (1953) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Pour from a 22oz bomber. Copper color, white head and nice lacing. Malty nose with a bit of hops in there. Earthy hop profile, slight citrus, with a nice slightly spicy bitterness in the taste. On the sweet side. Good, but not great. Edit, bumping a point up for the really nice nose that I didn’t describe. Citrus and grapefruit.
