BeerandBlues2 (12686) - Escondido, California, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Tap at the brewery. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy off-white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is dank, earthy, pine, and herbal hops with biscuit malt and pear esters. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, supporting malt, fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

From the tap came a hazy amber brew with a thin white head. Medium bodied with aromas of orange and butt crack. Malty flavor with a good balanced lingering malt/hop presence.

Tap @ brewery. Orangey with thin dissipating head. Dank weedy, light cat piss, and a faint perfume- plus I almost get a meaty aroma. Bitter and a little perfumey. More bubbly feeling than some IPAs.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2016 had on tap at the brewery. a solid ipa. somewhat suprised at the rating of 95. think this is a decent, solid ipa but was by no means blown away. definitely the right color, nice aroma and balanaced all the way through. good maltiness to it- hops are there but not as much as I would like. sort of lacking the hoppy finish that the best ipas have mastered. some would say balanced but to they are playing it a bit safe with this one. appealing to the masses- can definitely see why its their most popular brew. very nice way to wash down the complimentary bowls of peanuts. wish they offered a flight so could have tasted them all - was intrigued by the hemp brown ale on tap. With Cory and Michelle. Maybe slightly better than I remember but previews review still stands. Decently hoppy but mostly just crushable. Hence the "IPA window". Nice citrus notes in there and not overly dank or resin. Easy.

Growler thanks to Bryan at Westbrook! Cloudy orange pour with a white head. Sweetish aroma with citrus and earthy hops. Similar sweet flavor with citrus and earthy hop bitterness at the end.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Beer 22 Asheville trip. Poured a light clear orange, nice head. Aroma was, well, quite hoppy, citric and earthy. Flavor was balancing caramel accented malts, and a bracing hop finish, surprisingly floral and grassy in nature. A well constructed IPA, although the hop profile wasnt my favorite in the world.

From tap. Pours deep golden with haze. Aroma was earthy hop. Taste was mildly hoppy but balanced with a malt backbone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
