COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hereís a nugget that James Marshall missed! Pale and crystal malts provide the backbone and golden hue, while Magnum, Simcoe and Chinook hops do the dancing on your tongue. Late hop additions to the kettle and aging on the "dry hop" give our India Pale Ale hop aroma and flavor worth digging for!

Bomber from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Clear honey gold with a big almost white head. A citrus aroma with pine (and I can never smell or taste pine!). Citrus beginning and that includes grapefruit. Cat pee. Cinnamon. Fairly big bitterness and it is making the top of my throat become numb. Some tropical fruit comes in mid glass. Simcoe is not a favored hop for me and this one definitely features it.

Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Poured a very clear gold with a big white head and moderate lacing . Nose is tropical fruit, citrus, pine, and peach. Medium plus body. Smooth in the mouth. Flavor is very rich with the fruit dominating, some grapefruit, pine, and some cinnamon spice. The finish is pine bitterness and the flavor hangs in there. Really nice beer, very drinkable.

On tap @ Auburn Alehouse. Clear golden pour with white foam. Really nice, juicy orange and grapefruit. Pine, hints of peach, and a slight tropical note. Flavor is a touch sweet and has a lot of orange and peach. Bitter pine, grass, and citrus pith on the finish. Pretty good IPA.

Barnacle_Ed (40) - Milpitas, California, USA - JAN 17, 2015
A very nice West Coast IPA with a huge - almost gratuitous - hoppy taste to it. Very piney and resiny, with just a hint of sweet caramel in the aftertaste. A good session beer for any hops fanatics.

Golden colour, thin head, fairly fizzy. Hoppy, nice at first but with a strange aftertaste.

Natai (115) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 29, 2014
On tap at DeVereís Irish Pub Auburn Alehouse night. Liquid gold with a slight white head and excellent lacing. Simcoe hops are evident and import wonderful pine and resin aromas, followed by a hint of citrus. Smooth front end that transitions to a bit of a dry bite on the back end.

"close to a double, if it isnít indeed one. This is among their best beers...it was the second best (best in my opinion) beer at the Music In the Mountains brewfest 8/08. Wonderful hop aroma and a body and strength that tends to lean towards an imperial. had it at the pub a couple times too, and itís never disappointed. 11/09-strangely enough, this big IPA didnít fare well cask conditioned. a little boring, especially compared to the awesome Rubicon Hop Sauce (cask). Iíd like to compare the regular versions of each beer..."
