3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Itís not often that I rate an IPA higher than itís average, but this one stood out as being a full-flavored, smooth bitter beer. I had it on tap at Lamppost Pizza in Davis. It was the only brew there that I hadnít had in the past. The flavor was citrusy, but very controlled and direct. A very drinkable IPA.

Not sure why I never saw this one before as it appears it must not get wide distribution. From a 22 oz bottle this poured a clear copper with a fat off-white head the left nice lacing rings in my Chimey glass. Nose of caramel malts and citrus hops. Very smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is mild malt and both piney and citrus hops. Long dry bitter finish. Very easy to drink.
