COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aroma Coma is our summer seasonal India Pale Ale. We’ve brewed it annually since 2009 for a local IPA festival, where it was selected one of the top three beers in the competition. The malt bill consists of almost all 2-row barley malt, with a touch of Caramalt for body - leaving you with a delightfully hop-forward experience. Generous amounts of Cascade, Chinook, CTZ & Citra hops create the citrus, pine, and floral notes. Breathe ’Em in and enjoy!

Bottle from Whole Foods SoMa, San Francisco<.i>
Hazy golden color with compact head. Nice hop aroma, pungent, a bit resiny. The mouthfeel is dry and lean, there is no notable malt flavor; strong bitterness, with some resins, but not much hop quality, hence the final is rather boring.
The hops are not bright enough, the malt doesn’t contribute enough; ok beer.

Medium yellow pour. Amarillo and citrus hop aroma. Flavor is light lemon, lime, tangerine and grapefruit, with a little sugary sweetness. Finish is slightly bitter. Body and level of carbonation are light. Pretty easy to drink. Good beer.

Bomber from whole Foods Santa Barbara - no dates so I have no idea when bottled - pours a lighter yellow - ok aroma but I expected more - nice hoppy citrus flavor with malt in background just like I like it. A good but not great IPA - would like to taste this fresh from brewery ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
