Definitely a West Coast IPA! Nice hoppy nose with grapefruit and pine aromas. Light malt flavor with a lingering hop resin. Delicious!

This one was really quite good. Nice citrus aroma and first sip has a good hop body. The finish is pretty dry but this is still an excellent beer

Pours a nice slightly hazy medium yellow wihta soapy white head. Aroma is spicy, juicy and sweet with a slight pineapple scent. Very dry bitterness hits first with a woody, vegetal taste. This is immediately followed by a juicy, citrus pith bitterness that rounds out the taste. Thereís a candied sweetness that balances out all the bitterness very well. Surprisingly, thereís also a very evident toasted malt flavor that isnít present in a lot of IPAs which is really nice. Finishes very dry with waves of hoppy bitterness as well as a lingering honeyed sweetness. Excellent West Coast IPA.

On tap at Rough Draft (two pints) and from a few big bottles on later days. I *really* like this everyday drinkable IPA. It has that orange zest/tangerine pine resin with pretty crisp carbonation all wrapped into a medium bodied (but barely any malt) combination. Not sure about other reviewersí opinions, but I really think this makes an excellent base IPA from them. I canít wait until it gets to Texas someday. In the meantime, Iíll be visiting again and Rough Draft will be first on my list, and a pint of this my go-to IPA.

Tap at Slaterís 50/50. Pours clear pale orange with a large, frothy white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is Fruity Pebbles, melon, citrus, and floral hops with light pale malt. Flavor is moderate fruity and tangerine hops, light crisp malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

I like it. Textbook IPA. Golden amber. Nice lasting head. Hoppy nose. Solid Malt base. A hint of alcohol. Tasty hops, strong but restrained enough to quaff.

Poured from a bomber picked up at Total Wine while in Arizona. Aroma was pretty good. Not skunky at all since I donít have a bottle date. Super clear golden color with a light fluffy head and some lacing. Taste - easy drinking ipa. Smooth with a nice backbone.

Good to be the 10th rater. Bomber from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. (Fredís the man for beer!) Pours a light amber gold with a four finger creamy/bubbly/frothy white head. Aroma is a cross between orange zest and cat pee. Execellent beginning. Med body. Flavor is lots of (to me) citrusy hop over a decently roasty caramel. Bitter assaults the tongue, yet there is a certain lurking sweetness. Itís not a NW mouth burner, but it is a seriously smooth and hoppy ale. Finishes nicely bitter. Seems to be more resin in the finish than citrus. Almost earthy.
