Poured from 22oz courtesy (craftbeerconnect) - This is no "wipeout" of an IPA, this is spot on! Tidal wave of hops hits all the right marks; considerable malty undertone. Nicely crafted.

An outstanding hoppy IPA with a fresh aroma and golden/cloudy appearance. The taste is fresh and a bit fruity with a lot of fine carbonation. The palate maintains the clean fresh taste, not muddy like many strong IPA’s. Overall a very hoppy IPA with the right price. Available under $4.00 to $4.50 at several San Diego location for 22oz. which makes it a great buy. Currently my favorite. I buy it by the case!

Keg @ Monk’s Cafe. Slightly hazy deep gold color with a strong white head. Pleasant nose. Some tropical pineapple and orange peel fruit smoothie. Dried grass. Fresh, bright and inviting. Light floral hops and white pepper accent some sweet tropical fruit flavors. More orange. Not particularly bitter. Pretty juicy. Slightly chalky finish. Modest carbonation. Easy drinking considering the ABV. Very well done.

Draft. Big fruity pebbles nose centennial. Dank, resinous lingers. Great malt profile, clean, mild, more flavor than normal 2row. Very drinkable for strength.

Hazy amber in colour, white solid head. Aroma is fruity from hops with low malty notes. In taste similar, oranges, mango, and other tropical fruits flavours, almost no residual sugars. Solid bitterness, dry in the finish. Nice.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a big creamy fully lasting white head that leaves gorgeous lacing. Not a heck of a lot of aroma but some pine, resin and grass. Medium bitter taste in a medium body, could use a bit more malt to balance the hops-my only complaint. Flavors of grapefruit and resin and ending with a clean lasting bitter finish.

SinH4 (1087) - Garching, Bavaria, GERMANY - JUL 3, 2015
Hazy copper-orange color with small fine white head, nice lacing. Aroma is oranges, tangerines, not too piney. Taste is fruity hops, again oranges and tangerines, not too heavy, but the malt body is there nonetheless, moderate bitterness, quite refreshing. Soft mouthfeel. Balances my very hot Pizza nicely.

Prototypical classic West Coast IPA. All hops, all the time. Pine notes, some grapefruit, some more resin. Good.

Random bottle from the Woodland CA Costco enjoyed in a sweet Hampton Inn paper cup. Golden color with a huge, meringue head that lasted forever. Tons of carbonation so easy with the pour too. Not much aroma escapes the head but what does is straight hoppy resin. Big hoppy flavor but not over-the-top on the bitterness. Enjoyable.
