On draft at Slaters 50/50 in RC. It pours gold with a frothy white head. The aroma is a bit faint and bready with some peaches. The flavor is dry and bready with some florals and strong bitterness. Not a lot of hop flavor, which was disappointing, but nothing seriously off. Decent stuff. kaser (6312) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2013

Slightly hazy copper coloured body with a bronze glow and a thick, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of pungent citrus, grapefruit and especially piney hops coupled with a good amount of malt and some alcohol. Medium-bodied; Assertive resinous and rather piney flavours at first with a good herbal and slightly grassy hop character and a good malt backbone coupled with some light earthiness. Aftertaste shows a good balance of hops and malt with a nice grassy and herbal note and a strong but bearable alcohol flavour. Overall, a great Southern California IPA and one that should be sampled by all that like the style, that is, if you can find it! I sampled this 65 cL bottle (mine says 7% abv on the screenprinted bottle) purchased from Texas Liqour in Carlsbad, California on 19-March-2013 for US$7.99 sampled a few hours after returning on a subsequent trip from San Diego on 10-June-2013 at home in Washington.
