This is good, but the like the others I’m not wow’ed. The finish is better than the body, a theme at this brewery. Some bite, but not as much as you’d usually expect in SoCal.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head settling slowly to reveal some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is floral and citrus (grapefruit and tangerine?) with some caramel. Taste is a grapefruit and pine hop bitterness with a caramel malt sweetness. Medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Nicely balanced IPA which is very flavorful and definitely worth a sampling.

12 oz bottle from Santa Margarita. Nose is citrus with a lot of caramel malt. Clear orange with a medium offwhite head that laces heavily. Flavor is bitter with a lemony note and lots of malt sweetness. Pretty modest IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden color with a foamy off white head. Big grapefruit, and tropical fruit hop nose. Sweet beer with caramel, candied grapefruit rind, apricot, bitter orange, and sticky hop resin. NIce IPA and it goes well with the pizza.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle; poured a dull, dark gold color with a frothy, off white head. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, caramel, earth, and must. Flavor was pretty zesty, with a strong orange/citrus presence. Fairly hoppy, but not in an overpowering way. Solid backbone. Easy to drink. Alcohol managable. Solid, but did get tiresome near the end.
