On tap from the source. It had a orangeish amber color in the glass. It has pine and grass in the nose. Small amount of citrus. The taste has some tartness like grapefruit and some earthy qualities. Small bite on the finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden orange with a white head. Nose opens with citrus peel, floral, and pine hops. Nose is quite dry, but there is a bit of bread and toasted malt. The flavor is very bitter and very dry. Tons of pine hop bitterness with only some mild citrus and just a hint of tropical fruit. Some bread malt, maybe a hint of toffee.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at PPSC. I have the t-shirt. Never had the beer. Clear golden with small white foam. Nose is cantaloupe, pineapple, and resin. Taste is dry and astringent. Nutty and dry. Very palate wrecking or maybe the Tustins beer ruined my palate for the day. Grrrr. Webby white lace. Resiny and soapy nose. Hmm.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Pizza Port SC. Straw in color, big head. Strong citrus aroma. Flavor tasted like grapefruit, but had a slight maltiness that was strange. Nice hop bite and lasting bitter finish. Just not balanced, but still a decent ipa.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear cooper with a one finger head. Pine aroma with some grapefruit. Thin head persists with nice lacing. A touch of sweetness on the palate and a full bodied IPA. Overall a good beer.

On tap @ Pizza Port San Clemente.
Golden color with very little head. Aromas of pine and citrus hops with lots of grapefruit - flavor is bitter. Caramel malt with lots of hop bite. A bit too bitter and unbalanced for me.

Pours a nice orange/golden color. Pretty unbalanced a lot of unpleasant bitterness here. Really strong and more of a DIPA to me. Poormans and Danger Zone are better.
