Aroma is grapefruit with floral notes. Pours a clear golden with a mostly lasting white head and abundant sheet lacing. The taste is strong grapefruit with hints of bread and grain. Medium body and crisp carbonation. Overall, a very well crafted and enjoyable IPA.

On tap at the Carlsbad brewpub. A crystal clear dark golden beer with an off-white head leaving some curtains. Mostly peachy aroma and flavor, little room for the malty flavors and aromas. Nice bitterness though. Medium body, quite dry, nicely carbonated. Lasting finish. Sure lovely and dangerously drinkable. 130813

Glass: Pint glass
From: Pizza Port in Solana Beach, Calif.
Misc.: Had on Jan. 20, 2013
Poured a caramel amber color with about one finger white head when I got it. Good lacing and good retention on the way down.
Smelled floral hops, citrus hops - grapefruit and tangerine, and some light caramel malts. A nice bitterness on the nose.
Tasted not quite as good. Got some skunky resin hops, citrus hips (light grapefruit and tangerine) and once again a lot if IBUís. Still some floral hops to it.
Medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish.
A decent IPA overall, although I may have given it higher ratings than it deserved.
