Sampled on 10/13/2012 at GABF. This India Pale Ale pours a slightly hazy yellow gold color from the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, sweet and citrusy hops, lots and lots of citrusy hops. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy and grapefruity, some herbal as well. Decent carbonation. Nice long lasting bitterness. Crisp and clean. Nicely balanced. Very solid IPA. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Draft at Hamiltonís Tavern in San Diego, CA. March, 2013. Pours a very hazy, pale golden straw yellow color with banana hues and a 1.5 finger frothy, pillowy white head. Nice retention, slowly settling into a thick, lasting ring. The pint is left coated with streaks of soapy lacing. Dank floral hop aroma with grassy pine and a ton of tropical/citrus fruit. Pale biscuity malt backbone with cracker, bread and light fruit. Resinous oils, dank buds and pine followed by hints of grapefruit, pineapple and lemon peel. The earthy and sweet hop notes are countered by biscuit, bread and graham cracker. Medium bodied with a crisp, spicy hop bite that lingers throughout. The mouthfeel is perfect. Light enough to pound yet a touch creamy with a complex hop profile and subtle pale malt presence. Dry, dank and bitter up front with a perfect fruit presence. Not overly tropical/citrusy like some other WCIPAs but just enough for great balance. Some pineapple and grapefruit sweetness along with subtle citrus rind. Pale malt backbone with biscuit, bread and cracker flavors that donít interfere with the fresh hop character. This is a great IPA that very refreshing and easy to drink without giving up any complexity. I would drink this beer all of the time given the chance.
