3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of thebeerprophet. Perfect one finger white head with a nice pale golden color to the body. Uniform head that held for almost a minute; lacing is okay. Aroma is grapefruit, kumquat, and tangy unripened peach. Taste is boldly hopped, but the use of simcoe/cascade/crystal reminds me of citra and willamette. Slightly bitter, but with that nice unripened peach flavor as well. Mouthfeel is a tad watery.

Poured a dark, dull, even coppery brown. Was pretty hoppy with average bitterness. A fairly standard IPA by all accounts, but it’s good to see the valley getting into the beer game.

This is a solid IPA, one of the Central Valley’s best. Lots of citrus and pine notes. One of my favorite beers.

Pours a clear golden orange color with a sticky white head. Smells a bit like grass. Some citrus peel and herbal hop notes, maybe a bit of soap. Incredibly grassy up front. There is a bit of sweet malt flavor to it, mostly bread. Some light line notes but not much bitterness.
