Pours amber. Pine notes in the aroma, with overtones of pine and grapefruit in the flavor. Nice balance between the big hops and the malt sweetness. Not as complex as I might have liked, but overall a good American IPA.

Can. Pours a nice amber color with lots of head. Aroma is really great for an ipa. Has a lot of citrus and even some skunkiness. Taste is a nice punch in the mouth, dry, but just sweet enough. Bitter enough for about anyone. Very smooth aftertaste and easy to drink. Bonus, the cans are extra big.

Pours a dark orange with a good tan head that lasted and left thick lacing.
Sweet thick malts are balanced with a very pronounced earthy, pungent hops aroma and some alcohol.
The taste is very nice. Sweet malts are everywhere, there’s a nice caramel malt and fruity backbone. Hops flavors are earthy, piney, resinous and pungent. Balance is nice but is a little towards the sweet malty side.
Body is pretty thick yet drinkable almost like a pale ale. Bitterness is not that high for a IIPA. Finish is sweet malts and resinous hops.
It’s a very tasty beer, and absolutely wonderful for fishin’ in its 16 oz can!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ PP Solana Beach. Pours a bronze/caramel with a white head and thick, sticky lacing. Aroma is dominated by pine with hop bitterness and a sweet but somehow complimentary malt profile. Taste is bitter hops, pine, garlic, and sweet, near syrupy malt. Somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Bit harsh and one-note but nice for what it is.

This is the most amazing IPA I have ever had. Beautiful pour with a thick long lasting head. Aroma and tastes of citrus , pine , juicy hops. Full mouth feel. Damn near perfect. Yes it is $$ but for a once in a while treat you need to grab this up.
