Not terribly complex but there's some good flavors in there. Bitter, hoppy... a little too much rind IMO

12oz bottle, yuck, tastes like soap and cleaner, mouth is super slick too, not sure whats up with this. Kurtos (200) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours an Earthy Red Colour.
Aroma is of Sweet Citrus.
Taste. Can taste some Piney bitterness with also notes of Citrus followed by a candy sweetness.
Overall. A good beer, certainly not one of the best, but still worth buying again.

Bottle. Pours hazy orange with white head. Nose is sweet malt and citrus. Flavor is sweet malt, hop bitterness, citrus. Slightly dank and not a lot of hops. Decent.

Pours a light orange with a white head that disperses to leave a foam cap on the beer. Grapefruit and Citrus dominates the nose as well as flavor, however a solid malt base keeps it together.

Pours a golden colour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma is malt and fruity - grapefruit mainly - with some pine, caramel and nice hoppiness. Taste is light to medium sweet fruit leading to a medium bitter hoppy finish. Pretty decent. Stew41 (2025) - Phuket, THAILAND - FEB 8, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2013 Bad bottle last time? Much fresher with better cleaner more moden hop definition. Green fruits are nice and there’s a mild ping of metal. Very slurpable. baraciisch (3234) - California, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Clear golden in color... Aroma of citrus and floral hops... Flavor is dominated by hop character, reminds me of sierra Nevada with bitter palate.... Solid Kroney (255) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 20, 2013
UPDATED: APR 19, 2013 This beer is actually better out of the bottle than it is straight from the tap. Pale orange with a thin white head. Very balanced, but the quality is "meh". Just doesn’t have that "wow" factor that most SD IPAs have. Good entry level IPA for those trying to broaden their palate.
Re-rate: tap at the Carlsbad location. They must’ve reworked the recipe. Flavor is much better. Distinct hop profile now... grass, lemon, pine. Aroma is still not really there. Palate is dryer and longer with the bitterness really settling on the tongue. DedicatedToFun (4000) - Santa Monica, California, USA - JAN 11, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2015 Tap at Nikki’s in Venice, gold pour white head, nose and taste are citrus. Hoppy, bitter, nice.
