Nice alcohol content, but the flavor is slightly offensive. I would not try it again, but I am interested in what else Lompoc has to offer.

Sight: very good, dark amber/brown, very hazy, big white foam
Smell: very good , fragrant, not hoppy for an IPA, more malty aroma\
Taste:very good bitter
Mouthfeel: very good, lively carbonation, long finish, bitter aftertaste
Overall: very good beer, ok to repeat

Draught @ Lompoc Hedge House. Pours a clear brownish copper colour with a small white head. Nose is sweet biscuity malt with a pine hop touch. Flavour is upfront sweet and caramel-esque and then lends way to a huge long lasting bitterness. Ferris (17117) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 25, 2017
Draft - Sweet caramel and candy hops. Clear a,beer with a decent white head. Sweet rich caramel and leafy hops with a dry light bitter finish. malrubius (3090) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 2, 2016
Bottle from Brewfest. Hazy caramel color with tan head and lace. Toasted caramel peachy cereal grainy sweetness with herbal piney woody bready finish with assertive lingering toasted caramel and woody bitterness. Medium body with a thin slick edge. I didn’t know people still made IPAs like this. To all their own, I guess. pdxbeermeister (4) - Oregon, USA - NOV 1, 2016 does not count
Good hoppy flavor, nice and strong ABV, a bit on the bitter side, full bodied

[24/12/15] Bottle from Happy Valley Supermarket in Portland, OR: Copper body with medium head. Nose is hoppy for sure. Taste also hops up front, some citrus and then tapers off. Decent. willisread (3811) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 27, 2016
Bottle from Mitsuya Liquors. Pours a deep copper with a finger of head. Loads of caramel and orange in the nose, but the malt really takes over as it warms. I get malt candy (gobstoppers) all over the nose. Almost like a malt shake. Some light cardboard and light funkiness in the background (slight brett issue I assume). Probably not in the best condition honestly. Malty finish. Meh. DocLock (11190) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2016
Shared at Craft. Hazy copper pour with off-white head. Nose was caramel malt, resiny hops. Tasted rich, hoppy, with more resin and some fruity notes late. Bulk_Carrier (6064) - Vermont, USA - JUL 26, 2016
This was poured into a becher pint glass.
The appearance was a slight hazy burnt orange to off sort of brown color. Slim finger’s white foamy head starts and dissipates at a nice pace. Messy lace occurs as the head dissipates.
The smell starts off with a sly citrus hoppiness. Subtle pine notes glide into a sweet malt base. Somewhat dry, with a sticky hoppiness coming in.
The flavor takes in all of the previously mentioned flavors sliding together sweetly. Bitterness shows a sly "oomph" slyly and riding on into the finish (kinda sticky).
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body. Fair sessionability to it. Sly carbonation.
Overall, very nicely done AIPA, I could see myself coming back to this.
