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.

Poured into a shaker glass. Bright amber with a cream colored head. Aroma has some caramel malt, a nice dose of citrusy hops, and a touch of alcohol. Flavor matches the aroma nicely with some biscuity malt notes up front and a nicely hopped finish. Medium bodied with a slightly oily mouthfeel. Overall a very nice IPA!

From a bottle, pours a hazy light orange. Thin, sticky lace. Heavy caramel malts to the nose. Hops and spruce on the tongue. Bready on the palate.

Joakgust (1146) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2015
Bottle. Hazy golden orange beer with a large white head. Aroma is fruity with notes of caramel, citrus, peaches, pine needles and mangos. Flavor is fruity with notes of citrus, caramel, peaches and pineapple. Amazing.

Nero55 (885) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Bottle. Hazy deep copper with small off white head. Aroma of citrus hops, light pine undertones, and some biscuit. Medium/light body, moderate citrus pine hop bitterness, light malt backbone, and a dry citrus finish.

As standard as standard gets with IPAs. It's not poorly crafted and not stand-out in anyway. It's drinkable and has key elements of a traditional IPA; I just like something unique. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Zymurgeist2 (1323) - Redwood City, California, USA - DEC 3, 2014
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.

slowrunner77 (7278) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 5, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2015 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." Much better these days (2015) but I canít just forget the crap ones :)

cstuartj (1020) - Washington, USA - SEP 9, 2014
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 (55) - 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.
