3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A clear orange pour with a white head. Nose is okay with some orange peel, grapefruit, and floral hops. Sweet caramel and sugar aromas, a bit of grass, and mild herbal notes. The flavor is a bit chalky, like a lot of the Pismo beers. Moderate caramel sweetness, citrus hop notes of orange and grapefruit, floral notes, and a hint of pine.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Has some hops in the aroma. Looks incredibly red for an IPA. The flavor is hoppy yet flat. The carbonation level is off. Yet, itís still good. More like an Imperial Red though.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught at the brewery. Hazy blonde color. The cleanest beer of the lineup, which figures considering the anti-microbial properties of all the hops that must have gone into this, even if they donít make the best showing. Fruity yeast stuff going on in the aroma and almost no hops showing up. Lightly malty flavor with a lingering grassy bitterness and astringency. Medium-light body. Not a good IPA at all. Sorry, guys, but this needs a lot of work, as do the other beers.
