3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A standard-setting IPA, heavy on the pacific hops with a strong but enjoyable bitterness. The appearance was surprisingly golden clear and luminescent, included a solid white head. Smell and taste were both of a strong flavorful intensity. Very satisfying and fresh hoppy flavor, hoppiness seems intentionally out of balance with malty or sweet flavors. Some floral hop accents. Finishes clean and appetizing for another round. Worthy of its reputation, although not my personal favorite IPA.

5 oz taster from tap @ BJ’s Montebello, CA. Golden color, almost clear. Dense white head with good lacing. Aroma’s: pine, resin, hints of citrus. Pine needles, resin and citrus retronasal. Flavor is full on bitter. Medium bodied. Bitter finish, not too long lasting. Truly Westcoast.

Straw. Medium amount of white head. Above medium bitterness. Medium body and a bit below medium carbonation. Grapefruit, grass. 4th bottle sampled. A bit overrated maybe?

UPDATED: APR 19, 2014 From bottle. Nice, hazy gold in glass. Super fresh. Dank hemp perfume with mango and citrus spritz. Inviting. Like sticking your face into a bag of hop pellets. Taste has plenty of tropical fruits, tons of green hops and a orange grass follow up. Wonderful. Fresh throughout.

Just gross. Super hoppy, to say the least. I wish it had a nose better than basic hops. Ps, appearance was pleasant.

A nice clear gold color. Strong bitter aroma of hops and a little citrus. Flavor is robust with piney hops that ride all way through the finish. Great beer

Great session west coast IPA. Crisp and hoppy, but not overwhelming. It is just right for a 4 beer night.

Solid IPA. Nice middle of the road and well balanced 'every day' drinker. If you're not feeling to adevnturesome, and just want a comfort beer, this will fill the bill quite nicely.
