3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at Zodo’s Taphouse in Goleta CA. Clear mediun amber, small white head, spotty lacing. Toasty malt aroma,with ample floral, citrus and piney hops, this is best part of it. Flavor again is toasty malts, dominated by somewhat earthy and slightly metallic hops, that are herby and piney. Medium body, assertive carbonation. Overall a pretty good west coast style IPA.
Aroma: citrus, grapefruit and pines.
Taste: grapefruit tart and bitter, citrus sour, pine floral notes. Mild and balanced. Easy drinkable Iznogud (3901) - CROATIA - AUG 14, 2017
On tap at the brewery, Santa Barbara. Pours clear golden, white head. Citrus, moderate hoppiness, malty, bready, malty, caramel, sweet. Light to moderate bitterness in finish. Medium bodied. jake65 (3942) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JUL 14, 2017
Bottle: Dark orange color with a big beige head. Aroma is modest florals and earthy spiciness. Floral hops are herbal and spicey, has a bit of a tea flavor. Lightly sweet and crisp with lingering bitters. Seems like I’ve had a whole lotta citra lately, so this was a nice change of pace... this probably has citra and I don’t pick up on it, either way I dig it.

Sample at TK Pizza & Pasta. Clear copper-amber color with a medium thin bone white head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of herbal hops, dank citrus and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall. tightslice (1350) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 2, 2017
Bottle from Key Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is soggy hops, some earthy spice, maybe some agave. Taste is murky, earthy and vegetal. Very soggy for an IPA...had this back-to-back with Marin Three Flowers IPA which was much more wet and fruity.
kathouse (1911) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - APR 3, 2017
Slightly hazy with a small white head. Aroma is citrus and some floral notes. Flavor follows suit but not a strong hop bitterness. Finish was refreshing without too much dryness. PugUglyBrewer (692) - - MAR 26, 2017
Golden-orange color with a whispy head of white foam. The aroma and flavor is surrounded in dank citrus, sweet caramel grain, earthy/vegetable herbs, and finsihed by sweet cereal and dy spicy hops. back (2160) - Holstebro, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2017

Within the FM big beers and again within the hoppy beers were all pleasant alone, but all had far too many similarities in supposedly different styles and treatments. Too much in common to appreciate as much as a whole.
A touch more bitterness than the other two. Still clean and fruity. Not bad. rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 17, 2016
Draught at Figueroa Mountain, Buellton, California.Clear golden beer with a nice offwhite head. Hoppy citrus aroma, grapes, caramel, floral notes. Hoppy citrus aroma, grassy, caramel, some pine. A bit laid back.
