When brewed? Might be a rotating beer.

What's on the Website: "Earthy, Grassy, & Danky like a plant you may grow in Sonoma County"

Hops: Altus, Citra, Eureka, Strata.

Where distributed: Parliament Brewing likely just distributes within California for now.
Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light orange into a pint glass. Unfiltered, lots of sediment at the bottom of the can. Very frothy white head, almost no lacing. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Somewhat assertive dank mixed with pulpy citrus orange/tangerine and oaty notes. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Blend of dank. citrus, and earthy/grassy notes. Aftertaste is pulpy citrus orange/melon. Controlled bitterness and lots of flavor. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-full bodied, some carbonation. Some juicy with trace dry tongue. 4.25/5

Overall (20%): An excellent IPA. This is the second beer that my friends sent me from their Bay Area trip. Sonoma Aroma will bring a more assertive danky bite than Kaleidoscope, so if you like that earthy, danky experience, this beer is for you. 4.25/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.325/5
