3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap, poured a light amber color, very clear, not cloudy at all, which made me somewhat suspicious that the wait staff had again screwed up my order. However, the aroma was extremely hoppy, as was the sweet somewhat biting flavor. A great IPA on a warm day in the sun, I ordered two, I liked it so much.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma is medium to full with fresh, bushy slightly citric elements. The color is an appropriate light-medium golden with a slim white head. The remarkable thing about this beer happens after you’ve got it in your mouth. (I typically get half of my judging done before it touches my lips.) The beer is medium bodied, remarkably clean and crisp and with a resonant bitter finish

Slightly hazy shinny light golden with a meringue lasting white head and effervescent carbo. Aroma is strong pineapple with some grapefruity notes. Flavor is same tropical fruits with just the right amount of malt, very hoppy but remains very well balanced, also the finish has just enough dryness. Light palate l, refreshing and tasty

On tap @ United Club SFO. Somehow, I have not rated this beer. I know I’ve had it many times over the years... Clear darker golden colored beer with white foam. Smells a bit musty and dusty, and big on the pine. There is some decent enough citrus quality. Crazy bitterness, particularly on the finish. A bit of sweet caramel. Super resinous. Pretty grassy as well.
