4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy, dark yellow.. Saison looking.. Fresh, fresh, fresh.. Herbaceous, piney, citrus rind, and tangerine dominated aromas and flavors.. Delicate honeyed malt counterbalance rounding out mid-palate and finish, though unabashedly fresh hop dominated. Love the fresh hop layers!! West Coast style all the way! Blind Pig lookout!!!

Hazy golden orange body, large white head, sticky lacing. Piney with a fair bit or resin, followed by some tangerine and clementine. Medium bodied, with smooth carbonation and assertive bitterness. Quite tasty.

Very cloudy. Sticky foamy head. Nose is pine cones resin and tangerine. Yeah, uber resinous. Sticky dank and full of pine needles. Itís as expected. Finishes harsh. Iím not a fan of these but itís still nice

Cloudy yellow orang in color... Aroma of piney hops... Flavor was crisp, fairly hoppy up front but not terribly bitter on finish... Solid

At 99 Bottles in Santa Cruz. Cloudy yellowish colour, but treats like a good IPA. Nice and bitter.

On tap at Sante Adairius, pours a cloudy peachy blonde with a small white head. Aroma smells like a cross between a farmhouse ale and IPA, with herbal hops, farmhouse yeast, and pot. Flavour is similar, bringing out loads of piney hops, and intense herbal, pot-like hops. Theyíre not messing around here - a rather abrasive hempy IPA. Good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler: thanks, Steve! Golden body, bright & substantially hazy with a slightly off-white foamy, soapy head that leaves behind some patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma is loaded with pine, grapefruit peel, bitter citrus, hop oils & leaves... Very juicy, slightly pungent, & definitively hoppy. Not much malt at all, perhaps a touch of cracker. Taste is full of the same stuff; bitter pine notes, quite leafy with lots of mid-palate citrus, orange, & grapefruit pith. Finishing pungency with hop oils & very slight resin. Backbone of very pale cracker malt leads into a non-sweet, dry finish. Bitter but not annoyingly so. Very good IPA, no doubt.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
1L growler thanks to Felipe. Pours a opaque glowing orange with a small white head that fades to nothing. Smell is huge juicy floral hops, hay, orange. Taste again juicy hops, Orange, pineapple, mango, and hay/straw. Nice subtle malt backbone that you hardly know is there. Low carb, but that could be due to the journey it just took. Great beer and I am glad I had a chance to try it.

On tap at Hogís Apothecary, Oakland. Pours cloudy blonde with a rich off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty toffee flavor that slips easily into bitterness. Smooth and well-crafted.
