3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 25, 2011 Pours an orangish amber with medium white head, lots of lacing. Aroma of floral and slight citrus hops, pine, caramel, and strong malt. Flavor matches, but overdone. They just don’t have the combination right or something. Heavy body, slick mouthfeel. Drinkable, but nothing I would go back to.
Update 4/26/11: Available in MI now, so I thought I would try again. Read my old rating and completely agreed. I was really hoping for more, but there are a minimum of 20 IPAs I have readily available I would go to first.
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with average-sized tan head. Hoppy tangerine aroma. Heavily bitter with big citrus presence. Quite good. Cowboy2131 (2) - - DEC 31, 2017 does not count
Great tasting beer if you like IPA BEERS. Has a bitter aspect that all IPA beers have that I really like. I think it's the hops??? Give this one a try!!!

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2017 First rating via the app. Don't know how I never got around to rating this one. Pours a clear golden yellow. Minimal off white head and lacing. Aroma is tangerine and pine, perhaps some honey. Super sharp bite of hops but mellows during the sip. Good stuff. Beerowulf (136) - , Indiana, USA - NOV 22, 2017
On draft into shaker. Generous lacing. Aroma of lemon and hops. Very strong hop palate and medium carbonation. Decent. Not sure if I’d try again. More of a wont for other IPAs.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2017 0,3 litre Bottle from Total Wine Laguna Hills. Cloudy Golden with white head. Tropical aroma and taste. wheldfond18 (12) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 13, 2017
Delicious hoppy IPA! Beware though, if you drink 3-4 you will be pretty full. eallenbrown (40) - - OCT 7, 2017
Little bit of a wang but a nice change of pace...might be a skunked bottle, but I can still enjoy it.

12 ounce bottle. Honey gold color. Rocky white head. Rich malty nose. Nutty, caramel undertones. Bittersweet with burnt sugar and dried fruit notes. Resiny pine hops in finish. meccahh69lol (366) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - OCT 1, 2017
A west coast classic IPA that is always a joy to revisit. It has a clutch of hoppy aromas with some wheat in there. The appearance is a clear eyed amber typical of a 90s/early 2000s IPA. The flavor is a wave of bitter hops cascading into citrus swirls and a smooth rugged piney foam finish. An old favorite that still holds up against a new generation. Good for chilling in an east bay airbnb with your boo boo while she tries to sleep before bombarding her with some Total Divas on hulu and/or the WWE network.
