3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at PPSC. Another good one, maybe I just don’t like the cans. Clean Mosaic IPA. Pretty balanced, easy drinker at 7.5. El Segundo Mayberry beats it as a Mosaic IPA but not much to dislike here. Asked for a fresh hoppy brew at the bar and this did not disappoint.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the brewpub. The beer pours a clear orange color with a medium thin white head that dissipates quickly to a wispy film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, grapefruit and roast malt. The finish is hoppy with a citrus aftertaste. Above average overall.

Tap at PPSC. Clear, bright orange to golden pour. Dank, juicy, sweaty nose. Normal West coast dank citrus IPA. Taste has aggressive grapefruit peel, juicy fresh orange. Long, wicked finish. No soap, nutty, astringency. Really solid, straightforward. Long, aggressive grapefruit finish never goes astringency, nutty, or harsh.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Week old batch at Pizza Port SC. Pours a medium golden orange with light white head. Aroma is grassy and faint hops, doesn’t overwhelm but I always chalk this up to the pint glass. Tastes a light tropical hop forward single IPA with very mellow malt, some grass, not a lot of fruit but it is there. Overall, nice but nothing crazy different or that makes it stand out.

Growler. Pours with a thin white head over a clear golden hued body. Aromas are hoppy but with unusual aromas of blueberry, citrus, peaches, kiwi, really grassy/resiny. All hops notes, seems like Mosaic. Flavors are a bit of tannic malt, bitter, fruity, grassy, quite bitter, tropical fruit, resin, low malt flavor. Lower carbonation with a dry finish.
