Tap @ Coin-op, San Diego.
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Aroma is hoppy and citric, orange and some grapefruits, caramel and pale malts. Piney, resinous hoppy flavor, grapefruits, and caramel. Hop profile is excellent, very tasty indeed. Excellent.

Citrus and tropical hop notes, light malt base... Citra and Nelson worked really well together in this... Some grainy notes... Not overwhelmingly bitter... Really nice ipa

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Fruity tropical hops, moderate bitterness, some city dankness, and faint sweetness. Good stuff.

Savor 2015. Citra and Nelson area always favorites, explains why this was so good. Nice nose, nice taste, palate medium light.

My Bottom Line:
Biscuity honeyed malts lift citrusy hops in this crisp and refined IPA.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam protects the clear straw golden.
-The mouthfeel is engaging and conducive to great gulps.
-Hops are also herbal and a tad resinous.
-I didnít find this one more aromatic or more flavorful than their Publican (Pale Ale), so I fail to see why I would drink this IPA instead of its less alcoholic sister.
On tap at their brewery tasting room.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Savor. Quite possibly the best IPA I have ever had the pleasure to sip. Aromas of hops of the citrus/tropical variety. Followed though in the taste, totally in balance. My only regret is that it doesnít make it to DC.

On draught at City Beer Store. Pours a hazy yellow with moderate and retained white head. Aroma is moderate tropical and slight pine. Taste gives more of the tropical aspects, with a moderate bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Straw-colored, but hazier. Very tropical brew. Grassy nose, but a sweet fruity flavor. Passion fruit and guava are huge. Resinous backdrop, fresh grass. Sugary sweet and as quaffable as any IPA Iíve come across.
