3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can, thanks to Ingo! Sampled on April 7, 2015.
Clear golden color, white head. Scent is intense tropical fruits; passion fruit, mango, papaya, pineapple; hoppy, a bit caramelly malty sweet. Hoppy, green, herbal, bitter, alcohol taste. Warming alcohol. Hoppy, citrus aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium high to high bitterness.
Alcohol and bitterness a bit unbalanced for my taste.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: Pours a regal yellow gold with a tight white cap of foam atop.
Aroma: Grapefruit, sativa, tangerine, fruit cocktail.
Taste: Beautiful mixture of dank citrus and grassy American hops. Very dry pilsnerish bready malt. Finishes with moderate length clean bitterness that lets up for repeat sips.
Mouthfeel: Bone dry, average carb, medium bodied.
Overall: This is exactly what I want from an IPA, and a perfect example of a San Diego IPA. With that said, if you like your IPAs a bit sweeter, it might get some taking used to. This might be in my top 3 IPAs as of this posting.

Pale yellow pour at Blue Palms. Slightly hazy with a nice white head. Citrus and tropical fruit nose. Bright hoppy goodness in the taste. Dry. More bitterness than I typiclaly like, but this all worked together quite well.

On draft at the brewery. Yellow orange pour, with a white head. Citrusy, bitter, sweet malt, caramel, and pine. Nothing special, but still a pretty solid IPA.

Wow. Great San Diego style IPA. Aroma, piney, hop forward beer. Not to bad an ABV. Enjoyed anytime.

Gold/Orange haze with poor head retention. Citrus, herbs, mandarin, slight bitterness with a bite. As IPA’s goes this hits the marks but with that said there is no real "wow" factor. Great summer drink.
