Bottle shared by brew3crew in Dec. 2012. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor had dank hops, earthy notes, light resin, moderate citrus hops, toasted bready malts with hints of caramel. Decent enough ipa from a previously unknown brewery.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2014 Bottle thanks to Wittales in the local 3.14 swap. Pours a chill hazed golden orange with thin lacy off-white head that sticks nicely. Aroma is big on the resinous citrus and pine of the west coast hops. Taste follows, a hint of malty back end, bittersweet finish. Mild carbonation, balanced and easy to drink, solid west coast IPA.
