BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 4, 2010
On tap at Ladyface. Pours with a huge creamy, eggshell hued head and a clear golden body. Aroma of mango, pine, herbal, light alcohol and a dry husky, graininess. Taste is hoppy, dry, fruity (yeast), tropical fruit (hops), light caramel and biscuit. Tasty. Dry finish with lively bubbles.

Sampled at the Bistro IPA fest. Another nice one from Drakes. It pours gold with an aroma of pot and citrus. The flavor is very fresh and earthy with pine, caramel, citrus, and a nice bitter, bready finish. Solid.

beerguy101 (5359) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 20, 2009
Tasted on tap at the Bistro 12th Annual IPA Festival on 8/8/09. This IPA poured an orange gold color from the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is grassy and piney and a touch floral. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are grassy and spicy. Nice balance. Not a lot of hop bitterness. Good carbonation. An Interesting hop combination, wish I had this one a little early in the day. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Tap @ K&B. Pours a hazy golden orange with a frothy off white head, good lacing. Nose was bursting with citrus and resiny hops. Medium bitterness on the palate. Damn tasty!

Draught at the Bistro IPA fest. Gold with a sticky head. Another unique hop combination in the aroma and flavor. It was almost weird, mixing grassy and spicy saaz with some crazy fruit notes from simcoe and amarillo. The aroma had a light earthy touch, with lots of spicy fruits. The flavor mixed this odd combo with a toasty malt flavor in near perfect balance. Medium-light bodied and smooth on the tongue with no obtrusive bitterness. This was one of the more unique and refreshing IPAs that I have had lately. Unexpected, but almost perfectly balanced and interesting.

popery (1994) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 1, 2009
On tap at City Beer Store. Very nice IPA with a big pine-citrus hop character. This beer poured a medium amber with a white head, pretty standard for an IPA. The aroma was quite assertive with a big hop punch. It smelled of candied grapefruit rind, flowers, freshly cut grass and pine sap. The flavor was a bit more middle of the road, but there certainly wasn’t anything wrong with it. The American IPA field is just awfully crowded and Bass Ackwards was just a bit standard for a juicy West Coast IPA. It was dangerously drinkable. My glass emptied very quickly.

Pours medium golden with a thin off white head. Nose is refreshing, with sweet citrus and pineapple, along with a bit of caramel. Flavor is similar with the addition of an earthy hop presence that lingers as a lasting bitter finish.
