Nice. Amber like appearance and more bitter on the second half of the glass. Hop juice all the way. Solid and decently balanced...if you can ever say that about IPAs.

San Clemente: Very bitter, as expected, with plenty of citrusy grapefruit bite! Nonetheless, I thought it was terrific, which is something I don't say about IPA's often. Must be because there was enough malt to make things interesting. The Cascade hops are plenty evident.

Best of the bunch on this visit. Nothing to write home about but a solid "west coast" ipa. Golden color with a thick white head. Citrusy nose and flavor. Medium bodied, you all know the routine by now...

had this on draught at Pizza Port San Clemente. it's their version of an IPA. Using Centennial and Cascade hops, this IPA is definitely some serious hop juice. It is a bit one dimensional. It was enjoyable, but nevertheless, there are plenty of good IPA's out there
