COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
100 IBUs and a simple malt profile really show off this IPA’s character and Northern California heritage. Citra and Galaxy hops were used to dry hop this beer into next week!

I’d have rated this higher all around, but it seemed tight -in the way a wine needs to breathe sometimes. Like its young and going to develop a little more as it ages --which maybe it does? Darker than you average IPA, with slightly less head. Aroma is tight pine and resin a little bit less of citrus and hibiscus. Flavor is similar in profile to the aroma, plus a little lemon, a little sour and some malt backbone behind it.

kaser (4905) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2015
22oz bottle at home. Dark orange clear pour with hardly any head. Dank, bitter, basement aromas. Taste is dank fruit and hoppy with spices. Pretty average

bnoel09 (565) - Elk Grove, California, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Poured from the bomber into a shaker glass. Dark amber / copper color with a tan head. Aroma is caramel malt and fresh hops. Flavor starts with some malty sweetness / molasses and follows with some peppery and resinous hop notes. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a long finish. Decent brew but a bit maltier than I prefer for an IPA and doesn't drink like 100 IBU. Seems more like a hoppy amber.

Hazy dark orange. Dank pine on nose. Taste is earthy, caramel, pine and a smack of bitterness. Solid, though I generally prefer more citrus.

Tap, orange pour, white head, nose and taste are citrus, hoppy, piney, good stuff

Pours cloudy blonde with a decent off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with massive hop bitterness.

Draught @ City Beer, San Francisco, CA
Pours cloudy orange/amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus, grape and pine. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long caramel and bitter finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (16045) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2013
On tap at City Beer. A hazy, orange beer with a small, light beige head. The aroma is a bit sweetish, but with lots of pine cones and citrus peel. It’s rather bitter in the mouth, full-bodied and lightly warming. Nice carbonation too. Sugary malty sweetness, pine cones and lemon peel. Lasting finish where the bitterness beats the sweetness. Overall, too sweet, but I like it anyway. 130805

brokensail (14558) - San Leandro, California, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Hazy orange pour with a tall white head. A very nice nose to this. Plenty of citrus, pine, and floral hops. A slight bready malt sweetness, some herbs, and a touch of wood. The flavor is very bitter and a bit too grassy. Somewhat sweet with a fair amount of bread and toasted malt. Some decent citrus, herb, and pine hop flavors, but too much bitterness and not enough hop flavor.
