Can from a trade. Pours light copper, thick foamy off white head. Nose of pine. Taste is massively bitter, pine, earth, mud, then malt. This is just an old skool IPA like Run DMC.

Tap @ Toronado. Aroma & appearance are top notch! The first 2 seconds of the beer are amazing, and then it goes downhill... Initial citrus hops turn into a sweet maltiness that is unappealing and prone to headaches. To be fair, this is a 4/5 IPA anywhere else but San Diego. I'm being picky here

Draft @ Beer wars, one of the blind tastes I enjoyed. Golden orange color and a modest sandy head. Nose is heavily hopped with citrus and tropical fruit, very nice. A nice blend of bitters and sweet citrus taste. Hoppy and delicious.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can, 0.50l. Pours clear golden color with large soapy off-white head, good lacing and sparkling appearance. Aroma of tropical fruits, berries, caramel and linden. Taste starts by moderate sweet caramel, following is resinous, grassy, slight medicinal with mild melon note and heavy bitter finish. Medium body, oily texture and soft tickling carbonation in palate. Hops are my only future hope...

Can. Nose is floral, warm, peach, mint, lots of mango. Very appealing a suited to a beach front. Taste follows, floral mango, resin, sweet peach and lychee, in the finish. Citrus floats above a grain and malty body. Hints of mint and a dab of coconut add depth. Surprisingly malty.
A very well balanced beer and it’s possible to see the genealogy of the beer in developing the west cost IPA as suggested.
