COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
While respectfully following the guidelines of this traditional British ale, we added a truly American twist. Using 100% U.S. grown hops throughout the brew, a complex variety of imported and domestic malts, and a truly unique British yeast, the result is a well balanced India Pale Ale. One that exemplifies the classic style, yet brings with it the flavors and aromas of our American hop innovations without forgetting the barley.

Aroma of caramel malt, pine and grapefruit. Very thin and dry; very grassy and earthy hopps. A somewhat weird roasted flavor. Pretty bad for the style.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - MAY 4, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of some citrus hops / grapefruit. Flavor is a little disappointing. There is very little malt, and the hops are very grassy and slightly harsh.

Slightly hazy pale with a small off-white head. The aroma is herbal, piney hops with gramcracker and honey malts. The flavor is fairly dry, lightly bitter with pine, grass, honey and bread. Medium body with moderate carbonation and a bitter finish that is a touch on the thin side.

Tried the East Bay IPA during a weekend staying aboard the USS Yorktown CV10 in Charleston Harbor. It sure hit the spot after a long day exploring the aircraft carrier and other boats in the fleet. The East Bay IPA pours a clear yellow and goes down smooth. Not the strongest beer for an IPA - it sort of reminds me of a regular pale ale. A good beer on a hot day.

Thanks to tronraner for sharing this bottle with us at the Tennessee Spring(ish) Tasting! A slightly golden/amber pour without much haze. A large cat piss aroma (almost like amonia) and a hint of pepperiness, Not an overpowering bitter and not alot of malts either. Decent carbonation but a tad thin. Rather weak for an IPA or slightly old?

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAR 13, 2007
Thanks to tronraner for sharing this bottle with us at the Tennessee Spring(ish) Tasting! Poured a hazy amber with a white head that leaves light lacing. The aroma has grapefruit and hints of pine. The flavor was found to be a subdued classic IPA with a slight malt background. Medium body and dry texture. Decent but just average.

Tasted at the Tennessee Spring(ish) Tasting held in Knoxville, TN on 3/10/2007. Bottle shared by tronraner... Besides having a name that rhymes, East Bay IPA pours a slightly hazy copper-orange color. There is only a small, diminishing, mostly white head. The flavor has some toasted malt and slightly nutty characteristics. The hops seem to lend some floral and citrus/grapefruit flavors, but only a weak bitterness. I thought that the body and palate were a bit watery. Overall I enjoyed the flavor and muted hoppiness and bitterness. This is a good interpretation of a British ale (evident by the malt profile and flavor). It is easy to drink and quite enjoyable without being overly heavy or bitter. 12 oz bottle (09107FX).

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 12, 2007
Bottle at Knoxville tasting. Nice beer label. Pours amber orange with a thin white head. Mild aroma of butterscotch and caramel. Mildy sweet and british type malt and fruity yeast flavors, but counterbalanced with some more american like hop bitterness. Not terrible, but nothing ground breaking either.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 11, 2007
Clear orange, thin white head. Faint aroma, mostly fruity, from what I can tell. Flavor is mostly grapefruit, then some more citrusy notes. Finishes surprisingly dry.
