3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a dark copper with minimal head. Aroma of citrus and slight pine. Taste is very lightly bitter. Orange citrus with a little grapefruit on the end. Light bodied with a somewhat sticky texture. Soft carbonation and a decently long finish. Not bad, but the texture is a bit off.
5 ounce draught sample on first visit to the brewpub, August 4th. Opaque medium amber-copper with decent head retention...fresh leafy, lightly fruity nose, a somewhat indistinct or muddled mix of citrus, wet limestone, and a bit of pine, it’s hard to get a complete grasp from this sample but while I can’t come up with distinct impressions, I enjoyed it...very balanced on the palate, moderately sweet, lightly to moderately dry, fairly bitter especially towards the end...quite full, especially compared to a few other samples that were on the thin/watery side, it’s nice to know that this brewpub isn’t consistently using too little malt...average carbonation, on the whole perhaps nothing really distinctive but quite enjoyable, and something I’ll likely get a larger sample of soon.

Not much west coast. More just a basic bitter IPA. Nothing special for sure. Not much aroma. Basic in general.

10oz draft at the brewery. Overly bitter with some stale grassy hops. Drinkable, just not very flavorful. kaser (6364) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Watery yeast aroma. Draft pour at Rockford brewing. Yellow with white head. Mild hips. Also a dull grainy flavor. Not very good at all. Was most excited to try this one too. jbrana (640) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Great aroma, and nice flavor, though slightly over hopped and grassy in the finish. Flavor of peach, pineapple, and grass.

On tap at brewpub, pours a clear dark amber with a creamy white head, the aroma has quite a bit of citrus with a kick of tropical fruit as well, the flavor has a lot of the same going on, good amount of citrus and floral hops in the finish, nice mouthfeel, good stuff.
