COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA pours a slightly hazy, pale orange with a balanced malt flavor and finishes with a wonderful flavor and aroma only American hops can provide. This beer is served unfiltered to retain all the bouquet from the hops.

brokensail (12886) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 29, 2011
A: The pour is a clear orange/amber color with a big white head and some sticky lacing. S: The nose is rather nice. Lots of citrus notes featuring orange, tangerine, and grapefruit. A light grass note and plenty of pine and floral hop aromas. Just a little bit of bready malts. T: Tastes just as citrusy as it smells. Nice fresh orange and grapefruit flavors with a little bit of tropical fruit, too. The requisite pine bitterness is there with only a touch of grass and bread. M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. O: Just my second beer from these guys, but both have been quite enjoyable.
