3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a medium orange with a one finger white head which fades to a little lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, tropical fruits, (a lot of melon), light dankness, and some herbal hop notes. Taste is similar to the aroma with the addition of some light bready malts. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi bitter, medium finish. Overall, a pretty nice IPA that is very drinkable and refreshing.

[ Keg ][ Churchills San Marcos ][ 5oz ][ Mini Flute ][ $2-3 ][ 3/12/14 ]
>> Amazing foam, glowing gorgeous straw. Perfect lacing. Nose is delicate with beautiful floral notes, jasmine, lavender, honeysuckle. Taste is chalky, dusty, papery...perhaps oxidized. Really like the aroma on this one and the no specialty malt is my thing. Will have to retry this.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Downtown Johnny Brown’s: Poured a glowing yellow liquid with a slight haze to it while having a thin frothy head. Aroma is nicely hopped with scents of citrus fruits and juices that mainly suggest grapefruit, orange peel and brown onion. The flavor is bitter and packs a surprising punch of hops that really delivers the feeling of San Diego made beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brewery. Pours a clear orange with white head. Aroma is generic hops once again, seems to be a theme with their IPAs, with a small amount of grass. Taste is minimal. Has some hop bitterness at the front, a small dank hop aroma taste, slight grass notes and then overly watery to finish it off. Overall, this tasted like a middle of the road homebrew.
