3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A decent offering full of citrus and pine, with some resin and tropical fruit flavors. Not over the top but decent and repeatable.
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Piney and citric hops, a bit dank, with juicy grapefruit and a touch of malty sweetness. Pretty good; certainly drinkable. Capa (3395) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Clear golden pour. Solid citrus hop notes. Light resin. Medium bodied. Finishes with a lasting bite. Good IPA. skmikeg (1826) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Pours a clear golden orange with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, tropical fruits, sweet malts, and some light bread malts. Taste is pretty similar the the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a decently tasty IPA that is well balanced and drinkable.

The best beer I had on my visit which doesn’t say a huge amount about these guys! Leighton (22027) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2013
Draft at the brewpub in downtown San Diego. Pours hazy gold with a creamy white top. Lots of semi-dank citrusy hops in the nose, like grapefruit and tangerine, along with suggestions of pine. Light to medium sweet flavor with sturdy, sticky hops, more grapefruit, some pee, ripe lemon, dry pale malts. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Resinous and lightly warming to finish with bitter pine, grass, grapefruit rind, slight floral spice. Passable. brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Lightly hazed orange pour with a white head. Nice lacing, too. There’s some orange, grapefruit, and lemon aromas. A hint of sweet bready malt, too. The flavor is almost acidic, but has a lot of nice citrus flavors. Orange, grapefruit, and lemon. A touch of pine and sweet bread.
