COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Here’s 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!

On draught at the brewhouse. Pours a clear copper-orange with a nice sold white head. Herbal and floral aroma and flavor with clean bittering.

BelgianBeerGal (3102) - Panama City, Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Traded bottle. Nice looking pour with a big, fluffy white head. Fairly big aroma I can smell across the table that reminds me of ripe pineapple. Nice flavor too; slightly sweet and perfumey but that gets covered by the bitterness a little. Nice.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2012
Pale golden orange colour. Tight cream white head. The nose is softly fruity and a little bit spice. Assertively bitter with a bit less hop flavour than I might have liked otherwise. Decent though. A bit of malt sweetness. A touch of minerally almost medicinal bitterness.

Dodgrblu (588) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 1, 2012
22 ounce bottle from bev mo. Solid IPA; no surprises, no disappointment. Pleasingly bitter and floral.

Koskela (273) - Marysville, California, USA - MAY 17, 2012
The aroma and color and clarity are amazing. Nice hoppy scent and a beautiful light amber color. A nice hoppy and a bitter taste coats the tounge and a light body as well. A very good IPA. At first there seems to be a little sweetness but it is quickly overcome by the awesome hops. The aftertaste is a great taste of hops. And more hops...amazing. Worth a buy and rebuy

BeerBoxer (232) - Sacramento, USA - APR 2, 2012
On tap at the brewery. I don’t understand how this beer is a 91 overall. One of the best ipas I’ve ever had. You can smell the hops while the waitress is still carrying it to your table! Has a great floral pine aroma and packed a floral bitter balanced flavor.

thetmaxx (739) - West Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Poured from the bottle into a shaker. Nice color, slightly cloudy and great lacing. Aroma is earthy, pine. Flavour is more of a spicey hop, maybe nugget hops. The bitterness is nice. This tastes exactly like the IPA I brewed last year with nugget hops. I think it was good, maybe better with Amarillo and simcoe though.

BlackEyePA (570) - USA - FEB 25, 2012
Draught from Sac brewers showcase. Very nice. Hoppy with malt back. Real balanced APA- what you’d expect from an West Coast American IPA. Well hopped, palate held hops and maltiness rounded out the IPA. Good stuff.

AgentSteve (1614) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Attractive light copper pour with a two finger frothy cream colored head. Nice citrus and pine in the nose and flavor balanced by caramel. Dry finish.

Ratman197 (9502) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bomber poured a clear amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of biscuit, earthiness,pine and light citrus. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, earhiness, pine and light citrus with a crisp dry bitter finish.
