Everything you’d expect from a great American IPA: Hop-forward, yet civilized. Bitter but balanced. Cascade hops ring loud and clear with citrus/pine notes and are backed up by a chorus of our other favorites - Apollo, Centennial, Chinook, Columbus, Crystal, and Simcoe.

Very fresh tasting. Tons of hops with a smooth finish. Every bit of a San Diego IPA as I could have expected.

Blueshawk (386) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2016
- goldenfarben mit leichter Schaumbildung - sehr schön wahrnehmbare Aromen nach Pfirsisch und Mango - perfekte Carbonisierung - geschmacklich fehlt dann die Ausgewogenheit zwischen den Fruchtaromen und der Hopfenbitternis - der Abgang wird dann durch eine würzig-pfeffrige Note nochmals verschönt Fazit: Etwas unausgewogen, aber gut trinkbares IPA

One of my first forays into the Holy Grail of craft beers, especially IPAs, that is San Diego. Poured from a bomber into a large wine glass. Prestige gold color in the appearance with a fluffy clean white head. The aroma and flavor is balanced between a slightly sweet malt base and the supporting cast of a perfect hop blend showcasing grapefruit and pine characteristics making this a classic example of another great West Coast IPA.

asheft (2989) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2016
On tap at Petco Park. Classic c-hops pine and grapefruit aroma and flavour with assertive bitterness and a base malt in the background that holds up the hops pretty well. Medium body, medium carbonation, crisp. Almost clear gold.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2016
Can out of Cousin Matt’s Californian selection box, 10/01/16. Gauzy pale orange capped slenderly with white. Slightly pissy, sharp, kumquat and lime squirted flowers aroma. Not the expected peach and menthol attack but something subtler and fresher with good stewed cheesy floral and soapy dragon fruit shower gel bitterness. No alcohol. Lemon curd and shower gel on crackers. Moderate bitterness. Vomit in the nose. Don’t mind it one bit.

DenverLogan (1100) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - AUG 25, 2016
From a bottle into a 2016 New Belgium tulip glass. Pours gold with head and lace. Aroma of pine, pink grapefruit, honey & cat box. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of under atenuated malts, grains, bitter herbs, straw hops, hay. Overall very bitter but not in a really enjoyable way. I should also note that this was the last bottle on the shelf at a Total Wine, and may have suffered from age and light. I’ll re-rate when I get a can or tap pour.

tightslice (1001) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Bottle from Safeway in Redwood City, CA. Big hop notes with a great mixture of sweet and bitter reminiscent of a citrus, herbal marmalade.
