3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft from the brewery, this pours lightly hazed straw-golden with a huge ice cream head that has great retention. The nose is citric and floral. Big citrus notes in the mouth followed by a solid bitter finish. Definitely west-coast inspired, this complements a cigar perfectly. Goes down well in the heat and provides substance and complexity with the active carbonation and medium body. Nice example of a hop-forward "left coast" IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Native Kitchen. Suprised rating was so low- to me it’s a decent, crisp, light, summery, clean IPA. Pours hazy with an orange hue- not much head but still appealing. Taste is grapefruit up front with some pine, orange, and slight floral notes. Decent balance- not overly hoppy. Medium carbonation and slightly slick mouthfeel. Good. Solid.
