My Rating: 77
Brewer: Latitude 33 (with Pizza Port, Culver Beer Co, and Burgeon Beer Co.) Style: IPA
Stated IBU: unknown
Stated Hops: unknown
Additives: coconut, vanilla
Brewery Location: Vista, CA
5/6 Appearance: SRM 4-5. Half opaque. watery OJ color. Mimosa-like appearance.
21/24 Smell: Citrus, orange juice, lemon, Orange Julius. Nice smell. No hint of coconut or vanilla though.
33/40 Taste: Thin. Lemon, light pine, OJ, toasted almonds. I could not tell if I tasted any toasted coconuts, or if that was the power of suggestion. Again, no noticeable vanilla.
8/10 Feel: Thin. Light bubbles. Slight oil.
11/20 Overall: Tastes like a light session IPA. I appreciate the understated additives (most brewers get it wrong and overpower), however, they were a little too understated. The coconut and vanilla were nearly undetectable. I was hoping for a summer vibe and the smell of suntan lotion and some pina colada flavor, but the Summery part was more the light taste and refreshing drinkability.
Notes: Not a bad beer, really. It has some positive notes, and on a hot day, I could definitely see a cooler stocked with these going quick. With 4 amazing breweries involved, maybe I was just hoping for more in the taste department. The beer was a little too thin for me.

Here’s more blah blah about my ratings:
Beers that land in the following categories are described as:
96-100 Legendary Beer. Beer I will remember for a lifetime.
91-95 Great Beers. A Corvette - super fast, flashy, but not quite the cache of an Aston Martin.
81-90 Above Average Beers. Beers that can marry your sister and hold a steady factory or office job. Reliable and good for all occasions.
71-80 Average Beers. There is something for everyone here, but something holds it back from greatness. Either some flaw or lack of umphhh.
61-70 Beers with Issues. Some major flaws, but maybe some interesting aspects.
60 and below - Total Beer Failure.
A few notes: Please understand that all ratings are subjective--that is the nature of our senses. No two people are alike; and beer taste and appeal will differ from person to person. So if you don't like my rating, understand that it is not an affront to you or the brewer, but my own opinion. We are all products of our genetics, our past, and our beer experience.
I am however aware that behind every beer is a person (or people) who love it. I therefore endeavor to be as kind as possible with every tasting. I try to highlight the good in every beer even when I don't fully appreciate it. I hope any criticism is taken as helpful as it is intended to be. And again, I am just one dude. I encourage any feedback.
Because I am doing IPA reviews, I am judging every IPA beer as an IPA. This is an additional standard woven into the ratings. I do love plenty of other non-IPA beers. I just will not review them with the same lens as I do here. Boy am I wordy--I need a beer.
