Perfect example of san diego style ipa. Very clean and dry with citric hop flavors taking center stage. Very good stuff.

Can to pints shared with wife. Thanks Mr. 50. Light colored. Thin white head. Aroma is a handful of green hops before you throw them in the kettle. Smooth drinking and bitter hops on the finish.

Can. Straw yellow pour with a foamy white head. Enticing grapefruit and resin aromas. Grapefruit and grassy hop notes dominate. Just a bit off balance with bitter hop notes dominating the show. Still, a very tasty IPA that letís you know your not in the grave yet....

16oz can extra from FiremanChris, pours a hazy gold, and has a faint smell of mango/citrus on the head, overall the taste is a slight citrus and passionfruit up front, and is backed by a bread tasting malt. overall a very refreshing beer, something i would definitely enjoy a few of in the summer

Can thanks to - shit, I forgot! Pours slightly hazy butterscotch with a large off-white head, creamy and long lasting with nice lacing. Aroma is pleasant citrus, tropical passionfruit, dank forest floor. Flavor follows, very tropical fruity, light sweet and light bitterness. No harshness at all. Light bodied and refreshing. Nice IPA.

On tap at CBB, I ordered Dr. Brew but got this instead. No apology or discount & was just told to drink this... service was pretty sub-par for the Pizza Port event, slow with many mistakes. Very clear shining gold pour. Spicy, resin, weed, floral aroma. Nice clean spicy weed flavor, tasty stuff. Exceptionally clean easy drinking lightly hoppy beer.

Raunchy tropical fruit and pine needle dominated IPA. Big body - can see the DIPA comparisons. Sweetish body with a moderately dry finish. Not as nuanced as the classics but a very respectable big IPA.

translucent orange gold, puffy large bubbled white head with plenty of lacing. Tons of resinous pine and orange with sugar, considerable caramel and biscuit, a little BO. Too sweet, the off notes distracting. More muted flavor, less caramel and more pine with a huge dough presence mid before lightly papery bitterness and soft grain finish, a little cat litter with warmth. Full body with zesty carb accents the bitterness. Generally clean and moderately bright, no heat anywhere so drop the sugar and this wins.

Can shared at the end of the 1st night of RBWG in jtís room. Poured a not so great looking muddy gold under a foamy bright white soapy head. Aroma is real nice, notes of tropical fruit, apricot, peach, slight toast and honey sweetness. Average to fuller body with avergae carbonation and a lingering finish. Flavor isnít quite as great as the aroma but still good, grains, old citrus, dry apricots, tangerine. Good stuff.
