3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Oggi’s in Mission Viejo. A for effort, but seriously it tasted like eating a flower. Also, very earthy. I like citrus bombs, so this one was hard for me to drink and rate. I think it is worth trying.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear amber with a big white head. Aroma of fresh hops, citrus, pine, floral with some light malt backbone. Flavor of bitter hops mostly with a light caramel malt sweetness, alcohol well hidden. Medium body with a long, bitter finish. This is a solid IPA, lots of hop bitterness and very drinkable.

Fairly average across the board. Not really hoppy enough and a bit doughy maltwise. Not bad but nothing id seek out.

Orange colored with light, creamy head. Clean, refreshing taste. Nice hops aroma and taste. This is a less malty style of IPA that I generally prefer. No sweet aftertaste. Tasty!

Bottle thanks to thome50, pours a hazy golden/orange with a medium khaki head. Aroma of citrus, topical fruits, and caramel malt. Taste of mellow sweet tropical and citrus fruits with a nice clean crisp bitter hop spice. Nice drinkable IPA!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by brew3crew. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy west coast hoppy aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bitter flavor with a moderate to heavy bitter finish of medium to long duration. Very good brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to taster (thanks brew3crew). Looks solid; a transparent orange with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes of bitter hops with a nice, light West Coast mouthfeel. A good example of the style.
