COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with extra hops and malt in the English tradition, but with West Coast style. This deep golden India Pale Ale is artfully balanced with a fresh, powerful aroma and a luscious finish.

Aroma is slightly balanced to the malt, with floral and perfume scents from the hops. Moderate low citrus as it warmed shows nicely. Hazy orange with a full white head that patterns well down the glass. Taste is more malt accented with biscuit predominating. Slight orange. A spritzy carbonation on the end, and residual sugars leave a sweet finish. Moderate bitterness is a little detracting from the beer.

not a gusher, but a little overboard bubbly. smell and flavor are again malt dominated, even for an english style ipa. that said, itís a fairly well balanced beer, but it does nothing to justify being in the 98th percentile. fruity malt, with little in the way of bittering or floral hops...maybe a little past itís prime, but there is no date, so iíll never know."

On tap, pour deep golden yellow with a nice thick head that laces for the full drink. Big grassy, pine, sweet citrus nose. Attack is bright, crisp, light. Critus and grass notes. finishes just a bit sweet and fruity.

Banksiz (33) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Nice malty nose with pine-resin notes. Pours a dark copper with a good head. Rich bitterness with no harshness, balanced well with the malt, and a nice lingering hoppy finish. Excellent IPA.

Mild, hoppy. Nutty. A little but peppery. pretty mellow. Slightly mushy. Crisp, solid brew.

Bottle pour at Milagroís Restaurant in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is pine, cedar, herbs. Taste is the same. Strong yet crisp. Herbal yet refreshing. Very sharp and chewy stuff.

Bottle, thanks Chris! Prototypical west coast visuals ... orange-tinged amber, big rocky head. Tart citric aroma stings the olfactory glands. But on the palate, this is more mellow ... thereís definitely a mellower aspect of that California wet, mushy hoppiness. But itís also a bit more base ... a hint of cedar even. Woody.

drGreat aroma, dank and floral underlying pine, yep the flavor is the nose and well above average. Tropical fruit with citrus and nice lingering pine hints in the finish. The bitterness lingers for a few seconds after the sip. True to style, west coast IPA. Draft sample from the source.

Burnt orange color aroma is a bursting grapefruit and crisp apple. Great mouthfeel. Crisp, dank. Super chewy. Almost medicinal but insanely crisp. Really sticks around for a whole
