This is a light, lively and easy-drinking IPA, despite the label describing it as a “West Coast Style.” Tart, juicy lemon and grapefruit juice is at the forefront of the nose and palate, with hints of lemon verbena, cereal grain, green plum and citrus pith in the background. The palate offers more weight than the bright bouquet suggests, although it's still friendly and accessible, with flavors of cracker, citrus oil and pepper that carry through the medium-length finish. If you're a fan of Sam's Boston Lager, but wish it just had a bit more hoppy twang, this might just be the Goldilocks beer for you.

Minutely hazy golden yellow color. Bright, toasty, grainy grassy aromas and flavors of lemon pepper muffin and grapefruit marmalade with a supple, vibrant, frothy, dry-yet- fruity medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length orange-mango chutney, arugula, and pepper finish. A solid, toasty, session IPA with nice crushability.
