COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after California’s Highway 78, this India Pale Ale was brewed in commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the city of Vista. With plenty of Galaxy, Falconer’s Flight, Southern Cross and just a tad bit of Nelson hops, our latest IPA is truly sessionable. Aroma’s include grapefruit, passionfruit, and citrus.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Bomber. Gold in colour with medium carbonation. Odd aromas of chocolate mint, oranges, and sticky pale malt. Sweet orange and sweet malts, along with more of that mint thing. Heavy bodied, and a bit odd.

12oz can from Good Spirits Co. Wine & Beer. Hazy yellow amber, reasonable head. Leafy spicy hop aroma. Sweet perfumey hop flavour. Slightly sickly sweet vanilla & hoppy aftertaste. A bit too sweet for me.
