3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at pizza port cbad during strong ale fest. Herbal & earthy aroma, flavor follows suit. Notes of grapefruit, tangerine, and grass. Very herbal overall, but pretty balanced. Dry hopping almost gave it a vegetable character but it stays fairly even throughout. Pretty good.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This looks fine. Not overly-hopped in the aroma but the flavor is quite aggressive. An extremely dry beer, especially in the finish, yet it has a bit of the Lagunitas-like sweetness to it as well. Great.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. The sign on the board had what appeared to be Han Solo in lederhosen and holding a stein. Orange color, good head, sticky lacing on the sides of the glass. Smell was nice and hoppy, pretty much west coast style, citrus and pine. Flavor was very bitter, dank hops. This was a nice west coast style IPA and one I would order again on sight. Alas, I won’t be back to Pizza Port for awhile so I probably won’t get that chance soon.
Serving type: on-tap

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ PP Carlsbad: Aroma is full of mild hops that suggest pine and notes of lemon zest and grapefruit juice. Appears as a golden honey liquid with a tiny topping of film covering. The flavor is thick with a bitter citrus like hops that really carry this beer well as an IPA recipe. Slight metallic aftertaste.
