Score Appearance Smell Taste Mouthfeel Overall Impression Year

Had a few pints of this at La Bella Pizza in Chula Vista (thanks Tony!)

Appearance is yellow color with some touches of amber. Thin head but retains very well, with some lacing as well. Very nice.

Wow, probably the best smelling IPA I have ever had. Tons of citrus, fresh citrus fruits like tangerine, pink grapefruit, orange, sweet lemon. There's also hints of nectarine and peach; this one is just very fruity. Then there is the nice balance of biscuit malt and bread dough, making a perfect combination with the fruitiness of the hops.

Taste is very similar but hard to live up to that wonderful aroma. Citrus and fruit, some lemon zest and a great biscuit malt backbone. Lots of citrus hops as well with a nectarine/peach sweetness in the finish.

Mouthfeel is very good. Not thick or heavy on the palate so it's easy to reach over for another.
