COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our organic IPA uses Tomahawk, Cascade, and Centennial hops for a rustic, rough-hewn hop character that pairs great with food or relaxing among friends. Prominent citrus and pine aromas and bitterness that is not over the top balances this medium bodied copper-colored brew.

Not as hoppy as other IPAs, but it has a flavor that makes it sweeter and subdued enough to keep it true to style

July 2010. I guess if organic is your thing, itís OK, but something went missing while making this IPA. Room for improvement.

I had this a long time back and somehow it didnít get rated. This was a pretty standard IPA for me, and just a tad on the under-hopped side.

maxwelldeux (3791) - Everett, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange-amber color with a thin white head. Nose is a little bitter with a hint of citrus in there. Taste is somewhat bitter, but balanced well enough. Meh for the style.

theMole (5) - California, USA - FEB 12, 2013 does not count
The alcohol is actually 6.0% and it is brewed in Ukiah not Berkeley ( it was started in Berkeley) The description on this site says this is a winter seasonal but it would make a better summertime IPA. Light and easy drinking. Good for a float trip if it came in cans.

Imaena (1881) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Bottle @ Yeah Burger V. Highlands. This is a pretty generic IPA that is not worth the extra buck - unless you really need organic beer.

Stevesie (329) - - JAN 13, 2013
Single bottle. Average aroma, decent orange pour. Lousy balance; too much malt, not enough hops; lacking in bitterness. Gritty finish. Utterly forgettable. But hey, itís organic! Yawn.

mile (3121) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, light caramel and light tropical fruitiness, citrus - piney hoppyness, faint alcohol. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel and light tropical fruitiness with citrus - piney hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dryish, light frutiness with citrus - piney hoppynes, light alcohol. OK dryish IPA. In the finish hoppyness gets bit sharp.

BucannonXC5 (932) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Plastic cup at a Motel 6 Price: $10.49 for the 6-pack Misc.: Drinking out of a plastic cup in a Motel 6 might hurt the ratings Misc.: Had on Dec. 24, 2012 Caramel orange with 2-3 fingers of frothy white head. Thick white lacing on the sides with good retention on the top. Smelled wet Cascade hops, caramel, tangerine and orange. Tasted similar to the nose. Wet, icy Cascade hops. Also sharp citrus hops (orange and tangerine). Bitter finish. Light body. Creamy texture. Lively (above average) carbonation. Bitter, but loner finish.
