Sampled in Burlingame. Really enjoyed this one. it was big time hoppy and a bit of cloudiness to it. A really enjoyable brew. Perhaps served a bit too cold.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is a slightly hazy golden amber color with a white head and some nice lacing.
S: A really good citrus hop aroma to the nose to start things off. Plenty of tropical fruit notes, particularly pineapples, too. Pretty straightforward, but really nice.
T: The hop flavor is really big and juicy with a fair amount of citrus/grapefruit and lots of pineapple. There’s a bit of a caramel flavor as well as some mild breadiness that weren’t really noticeable on the nose.
M: The body is medium with a moderate carbonation.
D: A surprisingly solid IPA. I really quite liked this beer and would definitely not have a problem ordering it if I find myself at Steelhead again.

the bottle was a bit old so some oxidation came through. Camarle and toffee creaminess. Hoppy pine, smooth but stale. Still very sweet though apple juice, peach and syrupy.

Bottle. Pour was orange golden with a creamy white head. Aroma was of grapefruit, citrus, orange, some peach and earthy hop. Flavors were citrus, grapefruit. This was a fuller bodied beer but was real smooth. Nice balance of hops to malt bill.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Somewhat cloudy light brown with a small yellowish head. A spidery ring. Aroma features hops galore with grapefruit and some sugar. Flavor features grapefruit and pine along with some funk. The hops are balanced but not by caramel. It is more sugar which serves to offer little flavor thus enhancing the hop profile. A bitter aftertaste. A good beer but very one dimensional.

pale orange color - sugary sweet candylike aroma. Sweet candy flavor - sticky mouthfeel. Light bitterness - too sweet for my tastes.
