3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Pours clear, yellow-gold, lightly effervescent, with a white cream top. The aroma holds pithy citrus, pine needles, suggestions of grapefruit. The grapefruit character really comes through in the flavor. It’s not too bitter. Lots of spruce notes, some grapefruit flesh and rind. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Mildly resinous on the finish with more juicy grapefruit, spruce, modest pale malt sweetness, hints of alcohol warmth. Novel .

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ PP Carlsbad. Clear golden pour with a white head. Light pine and hop bitterness with some floral hops with grapefruit and citrus rind in the aroma. Taste is clean pine and light bitterness up front followed by some sweet malt and finishing with juicy grapefruit. Clean, lightly coating mouthfeel. The grapefruit is very well done and nicely compliments the beer. Good one.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler shared by Ed5388 during the IPA tasting, I think he wanted to get me drunk to take advantage of me. Poured a hazed orange body with a smaller foamy off white head. Aroma is dank, bad citrus fruits, wet bread and old orange slices. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a long lingering flavor from the bitter finish. Flavor of dry citrus rinds, dankenss, dry grassy hops, earthiness. Solid stuff here.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Pizza Port Ocean Beach, pours a hazy / clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma of citrus zest, crackery malt and pine. Flavour brings out loads of pepper, more so than the grapefruit / citrus notes. This is a peppery hop bomb, with awesome drinkability. Excellent.

Tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Full haze straw pour. Great lacing. Aww man beautiful fresh juicy red grapefruit. So delicious. Powerful hop content and juicy, fresh balance. Nose is super bright, fresh garden, fresh grapefruit. Palate is juicy, balanced, mega hop ’power’ without being soapy, astringent, nutty, or abrasive. Really good. Could drink this all day.
