Pours a clear copper color with a 2 finger white top that formed a nice ring on top of the glass. Beautiful spider web lacing on the glass. This is an interesting IPA. Smell was mostly sweet malt and some floral hops. The initial taste is also caramel sweetness followed by a punch of hops that follow nicely. Very easy drinking IPA and quite good. beeroverthere (81) - USA - MAR 7, 2012

Picked up a few bottles from WF during my weekend visit to southern California. Have not seen these beers in AZ yet. Nice bronze color. Fair amount of white head that leaves nice lacing for the entire glass. The smell is all floral hops. Taste is not too complex, just wonderful hops bitterness but it’s not overpowering at all. Very nice balance of sweetness to control the bitterness. Very smooth finish for such a hoppy beer. Would like to get my hands on this here. toby00777 (135) - California, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Pours a light amber color, very clear, with a small head that falls quickly and leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. The aroma is citrus, slight pine, and slight spice. Some of the hop flavors come through after swallowing, but there is a solid caramel character and some bitterness. The body is moderate, but still full and interesting. Drinkability is great.

Bomber bought from Whole Foods. Ugh, this is rough. I went and bought a few things new that I had not seen before. This smells like cauliflower (bad for beer). Color is ok and clear. Taste is uber asringent and kinda brutal. I’m all for supporting my local breweries but I can’t buy this again until I know there is some serious improvements.....this is going to be a drain pour as I have other known good beers to enjoy on this Friday evening.

On tap at Blue Palms Brewhouse, Hollywood. Amber colour. Caramel and fruity hops nose. Good bitterness and balance. Nice. hoppyho (56) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 14, 2011
Quite the interesting IPA, and not what I expected. Being a west coast brewery, I expected a whole load of walloping hops. Instead this is a fruitier, sweeter IPA. Definitely an exceptional brew though. It’s dark orange in color, with a perfectly even balance between hops and a very sweet citrus aroma. The most notable comparison of another IPA I can draw to this is Stone IPA, due to its toned-down character, lack of a biting hoppy finish, and the sweetness. Flavors of hops, grapefruit, and tangerines all come to mind. Mildly carbonated mouthfeel. This is hoppy, but not nearly as hoppy as others are. The fruitiness gives it a more unique character as well. Nice brew! beersearcher (2383) - Glendale, California, USA - APR 4, 2011
Pretty solid light IPA. Pours a nice orange color. Good oily bitterness. Biscuit notes at the back end. Aroma is more malty than hoppy. beermanusa (77) - California, USA - DEC 10, 2010
On tap at Blue Palms Brewhouse in Hollywood.
The beer had a nose of fresh citrus with pine in the background.
The first taste is bracing on the mouth. Nice grapefruit bitterness. A bit of sweetness emerges later. Seems well balanced. The taste made me think of a citrus sweet tart.
Slightly thick mouth with nice soft carbonation. Well made IPA but not a hop monster.
