Taking a break from Slutfest ratings to catch up on some Mekong backlog. Told people I had something hoppy from the Bruery, but no one believed me. Gold, nice head. Aroma is massive floral and hay hops. Flavor matches, clean, with enough honey accented grain to hold it all together. Very nice, really loved this one.

Tap. Reminds me of hoppy jacks Abby IPA. Some grapefruit. Pleasant fog and green grass. Nice body. A lighter version would be more refreshing. But this was good.

On tap at the Bruery: all 4 version - regular, dry hopped w/ Chinook, dry hopped w/ cascade, dry hopped w/ Centennial. I liked the Centennial the best of the dry hopped versions, but all in all, its a nice brew w/ some good citrus notes.

Growler from "the bruery". Pours a mostly clear medium golden yellow with a frothy white head that lest some great lacing. Nose was quite hoppy with notes of citrus, apricots and Pineapple. The nose also really reminded me of Sculpin from Ballast Point. Very crisp bitter finish, great stuff!

Tap at the Bruery. Rating #28. Medium yellow pour with a white head. Aroma was pure hops, like sticking your head into a fresh bag of hop pellets, very powerful. Flavor was big hops as well, very citric and acidic and very enjoyable though. (1292)

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Verdugo. Clear golden with a one finger off-white head, fading to a creamy film before long. Aroma of hops--dry-hopped to high heaven with them! Citrus, herbal, pineapple and pine hops all up in here, and lovely. The flavor is much the same--citrus and pineapple dominating with the herbal dry-hop notes following, also has some moderate dank weed notes. Not much in the malt realm. Finishes dry with lots of bitterness, peaking at a 7 and lingering. No trace of alcohol noted. Light body with moderate prickly carbonation. A most excellent hop bomb.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler fill from old e courtesy of some bros. Appearence is hazy gold with medium white fluff head, nice lacing. Aromas of dank and pungent hops, lots of bitter rind and floral pineyness. Taste was pretty sessionable with a good citrus hop bite in the finish. Easy going with a Medium body. Great summer drinker.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a golden yellow color with a thick white head. Nice aroma of lemon rind, pilsner malt and hard citrus candy. The flavor is big with lemon rind bitterness and lots of florals. A bit too intense with bitterness in the finish, but otherwise a top notch IPL.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the Bistro IPA fest. Hazy blond with a lasting head. Resinous grapefruit peel aroma with some sweetness and flowers. Clean and dry with a bitter finish and low fruitiness. Medium bodied and smooth. Good stuff, but not a standout.
