This is a classic Californian IPA brewed with all California grown malts. The “ABZ” comes from the names of the hops used: Apollo, Bravo, and Zythos. Bright citrus notes are prevalent on the nose with a dry and pronounced bitter finish.

Tap at Salted Pig. Hazy lighter golden. Big lacing. Nose is a bit of with cabbage, urine, rotten orange. Taste is aerated but there is sticky banana, chemical, and ultimately tannic paper. Overall, not good at all.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 27, 2013
Cloudy orange pour with minimal white head. Orange and grapefruit aroma, lots of pine, and a strong citrus peel aroma. Sweet caramel, oxidized and old hops, and candied orange peel. The flavor is quite bitter, but very caramel forward. Sweet malt, pine, grapefruit peel, and candied orange peel. A bit grassy, particularly on the finish. Maybe a hint of pineapple and melon.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 7, 2012
On tap. Pours with a clear golden-yellow hued body with a lasting white head. Aromas are fruity, grassy, jammy, stone fruit, orange, citrus and lightly rotted fruit. A touch buttery. Flavors are sticky sweet, rotten fruit, orange, hop character. Grassy, suntan lotion, and lots of butterscotch. Medium bubbles. Slightly slick. Unpleasant levels of diacetyl.
