ineedbeer (892) - Oakland, California, USA - OCT 4, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Aroma is obviously dominated by hops with strong grapefruit character, with lesser amounts of tropical fruit and pine resin. Faint malt aroma with a nice cracker note to it. Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange with some light copper notes. Small white head that exhibits nice retention and very nice lacing. Flavor has a moderately sweet light cracker malt character to it. The cracker notes recede fairly quickly but the sweetness remains throughout. Medium tropical fruit notes with lots of grapefruit and lighter pine resin character. Moderately high bitterness with a surprisingly dry finish. Lingering grapefruit, pine resin and bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a slightly soft and creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Low hop astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall a very nice hop forward IPA with some sweetness to balance and add body without detracting from the hop flavors.

brokensail (11612) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Pours a bright orange with a slight chill haze and a soapy white head. Nose is almost pure grapefruit juice. Intensely citric and wonderful. Plenty of pine, sweet tangerine, and a hint of bready malt. The flavor is quite citric as well with tons of grapefruit, tangerine, and just a hint of peach. There is very minimal malt flavor and a moderate pine note and bitterness on the finish. Fantastic stuff.
