    I had it on draft on release day at the Karl Strauss brewery tasting room. My experience was somewhat different. I wonder if that is the slight difference a couple of weeks makes, or a difference in packaging, or a difference in palates? Here’s what I wrote at the time: “Soft initial impression expands to a hoppy bite that lingers lightly but long. Light piney w/ fruit in the background. It isn’t a WC or a Hazy—“New Cali” is a perfect name. I don’t detect the advertised citrus. Can’t decide if I love it or ‘meh’ it.”

    BTW, if you like Rye IPAs try Mike Hess Habitus. It is one of my very favorite beers.

    And I totally agree that KS needs to join the modern world and put packaging dates on its beers.

      Thanks for the comment. Agree on it not being too citrusy. Good call on the Mike Hess. I really like their beers. Super underrated in my opinion. I haven’t had Habitus in a long time. I need to go grab some now.

    I’m going to have to try this out.

    #1–It’s not hazy (thank god!)
    #2–I’m a big fan of all the beers I’ve had in the “Similar Beers”section

    Great review. Thanks!
