Pours a light amber color with 2 finger white head. Citrus and hop aromas. A piney hop taste, but not overwhelming, and bitter finish. A good ipa.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled on 02/08/14. Nose is folded citrus, lightly exotic fruit, green hop dust with almost whole lupulin, all folded into weak caramel. Pours clear golden with a rocky cream head. Taste lightly sweet and bitterness medium, very green hops as if they’d just been added 15 seconds ago, with a lot of grassy raw dry hopping character. Lightly spicy with huge resin deposits, citrus peels and zests, overall orange down the middle with weak malts. Medium body with watery edges and some alcohol seepage. Enjoyed, but it’s very atypical and gamey, very raw and homebrewy, hard to recommend to others.

From bottle to glass. Pine and resin with a biscuit malt. Clear, orange with a full white head and great lacing. Taste is slight resin and pine. Some orange on the background. Bready malt on the last half. Moderate bitterness with a harsh bitterness in the second stages. Finishes dry.

Bomber thanks to michaelinwa. Pours a hazy gold color with a small foamy head that fades to a bubbly ring. Aroma is very grassy with some citrus and light pine hops. Tastes pretty crisp with sharp bitterness. I would think this is an IPL in a blind taste. Lots grass and good amount of pine. Light citrus rinds in the finish. Decent but a bit hard to drink. The sharp bitterness and high carb hurts it a bit.

Pours a clear light copper with a frothy white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, passionfruit hops with some caramel and rich malts. Taste is passionfruit, citrus, grapefruit hops, caramel and light toffee in really good balance. Excellent ipa.

This has a good color and a smooth taste. The finish is also very smooth, slightly bitter at the very end

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Consistent hoppy aroma...more on the floral side. Crystal clear orange amber with a frothy white head. Nice sweet malt bite up front. Followed quickly with a prickly bitterness that finishes rather smooth...but long. Solid ipa.

Pours light gold with a moderate frothy white top. Aroma is fruity and orange hop with a hint of caramel malt. Taste is moderate bitterness from the citrus and fruity hops. A small toffee from the malt balances it out nicely.

Tried this at Lefty Odoul’s in SF. A well balanced but ultimately boring IPA. Some light citrus. Tried in 2014.

On tap. hazed golden colour. Very hoppy leafy/ west coast brew with some pungent hops. Medium bodied, dry and is moderately hoppy. Fairly pedestrian IPA.
