COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Angel City IPA is made with English Pale Malt and is bittered and generously dry-hopped with Golding Hops. This beer is not for the faint of heart, but because it is so well balanced it will be enjoyed by many.

22oz bottle from BevMo! Sorry to say but, one of the worst IPA’s I’ve ever had. Small, fizzy off white head with little retention. Poured a clear golden amber. Very light nose of dank hops and caramel, flavor was much of the same.

22oz bottle acquired in trade with Foolish_Mortal (thanks!). Poured a medium orange color with an averaged sized off white head. Small suspended floaters. Aromas of some fruitiness and citrus. Tastes of citrus, light caramel, and some toasted malts.

Brewsmith (148) - Torrance, California, USA - MAY 20, 2008
From a 22 oz. bottle purchased locally. Aroma is hoppy, a little citrus and pine, some malt. Deep gold color, clear with small off-white head. Flavor is hoppy at first followed by a strong biscuit/toast malt character that dries in the finish. Not too intense in the hop flavor. Clean mouthfeel. Overall, okay. A little boring. I’ve had more assertive Pale Ales than this IPA.

very very average beer. it tastes like an ipa would taste if it were made by miller. a little sour and unlike the commercial description just seems out of balance.

ChainGangGuy (4281) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 19, 2008
Appearance: Lightly hazy, orangey body with a small, white head. Smell: Sweet and sour aroma of ashamed malts and stale, soapy citrus hops. Here we go again! Taste: Unhappy malts comingling with sad, sad citrus fruits. And it’s all pretty tart! If there’s any hop bitterness present, it’s fully obscured by this tartness. Ugh. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Heavens, no!

unclemattie (4039) - Georgia, USA - APR 4, 2008
22oz bottle. Golden color. White head. Aroma of Red Bull, guarana. No beer characteristics as far as the Aroma goes. Flavor is sour then it follows to a stale loaf of bread. Bad beer taste. Kill yourself.

bsierra (213) - Vista, California, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Nice golden hue, creamy white head with good retention. Mild hops in the front and hints of citrus, good malt and an easy smooth finish. a refreshing ipa, not a overly hopped west coast style ipa~

shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a white head. Aroma is caramel, slight soap, and some citrus hops. Flavor is malty, candied strawberries, and sweet candy finish.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 14, 2008
Pours clear gold witha big white head. Definitely an English-style IPA. Soapy hops, pepper, biscuits, and that distinctive English malts. Taste is sharp and crisp, but somewhat watered-down. Apple tartness, lemons, and the golding hops are prevalent, as is a funky, musty malt flavor. Not really my bag, baby.
