@Oceanside: solid IPA. didnt stand out in the cornucopia of awesome socal IPAs, but held its own. Grapefruit and pine in the nose and flavor, medium bitterness and fresh.

On tap at brewery on my birthday. I was very surprised how great this beer is (same as the Maverick) as I havent heard much talk of this brewery. This was a really clean and bitter piney IPA sort in the direction of GFWCIPA. Great aroma, huge pine flavor and clean. Now that I live in Oceanside, this place will become a regular for me.

Draft. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of hops and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and hops, the latter lending it notes of grass and grapefruit, leading to a dry, bitter, and grapefruity finish.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2010
Fresh growler consumed March 2010. The pour yields a clear, dark golden amber body with a small, swirly, off-white head. Trace spots of lacing mark the glass. The nose is classic Cali IPA style, booming with juicy grapefruit and bitter orange hops, and equally resinous with notes of sticky pine, all with a very clean grain malt bill with subtle toffee underpinnings. Theres a bit of dank, bitter grass in the background for good measure. Flavors follow suit, again biting with oily orange peel, sharp pine, and dry grass bitterness. Malts are clean and well attenuated, showing just a hint of balancing toffee sweetness. The palate sports a moderate body and soft, even-keeled carbonation, finishing long, dry, and bitter. Excellent stuff. Damn, California is so spoiled when it comes to delicious IPAs. Why cant we get it right here on the east coast?

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Growler at RBWG 2010. Wow- I loved this stuff! Pours a nice mostly clear deep golden with a sticky white head. Aroma is prickly dank weed and tons of fresh citrus hops, tropical notes but mostly orange oil and some clementine, etc. Flavor is low on the crackery malts, light sweetness, just tons of prickly fresh green hops, citrus, grapefruit and dank weed- some resinous pine notes as well- good resinous bitter finish and pretty dry at the end. Good stuff!

Hazed gold pour with white head and lace. Sweet malt and citrus hops aroma. Taste mirrors aroma. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

Growler @ Woodshop 5.0. Almost forgot to rate this one! Pours a mostly clear glowing sunset orange with a wispy off white head, nice lacing. Nice citrus and floral hop notes with some slightly roasted caramel malts. Finish was crisp and off dry, tasty stuff!
