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.

ZaRue (11) - Laguna Laguna Niguel, California, USA - APR 12, 2006
Bottle. A good IPA for the IPA shy. Not near a hoppy as most. Copper to Gold in color with a decent head and slightly bitter aroma. Deceptivly mild in flavor with a not to bitter finish. I don’t normally like IPA as a rule, but this one is quite good.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2006
Bottle by way of trade with odeed: Red pour with an off white head. Floral hop aroma with some caramel. Flavor was maltier than I expected, there wasn’t much bitterness. It did have a nice dry finish.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 9, 2006
On tap at the Toronado. This was the cask conditioned version. This beer is way beyond the level of citrus that you usually get in a hopped-up IPA. It is downright sweet from the virtual fruit. Has a cloying dryness. The hop bitterness is deceptively mild to be this strong. The candy fruity sugar flavor almost seems like watermelon to me.

pineypower (2479) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2006
Pours out a nice deep copper color with a decent sized lacing head. Aroma is very hoppy, ummmm grapefruit/floral hops. Nice mouthfeel and very drinkable. Nice aftertaste of hops on the finish good balance. Top notch IPA

Odeed (1775) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAR 27, 2006
nice clear ruby red body with a hint of orange.head was whit in color and left nice lacing.the aroma was a of a classic west coast ipa.flowers,citurs,and ice tea with a crisp feel.flavor was much in the same with a liitle seltzer water thrown in.overall this is pretty solid.

jimbowood (1036) - Freeport, Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2007 Bottle. Another quality West Coast IPA. The question I have is this: why can’t anyone else brew IPA’s like the California guys can? Aggressively hopped w/ huge floral hop nose and great, crisp, hoppy flavor w/ bready malt undertones. Very drinkable.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2006
Dark amber colour, bright. Bright foresty hop aroma with pearlike esters and a rich caramel malt backdrop. Moderate bitterness, though the finish is kind of sweet and pale malts let you off the hook a bit following a bit of woody hop and toasted breadcrust.

thebeertourist (4757) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2006
Dark amber with a small off-white head. Good citrus and grassy hop aromas. Caramel blends nicely with the grassiness from the hop- a great balance. Medium body, well-carbonated. A very harmonious, though potent IPA.

A fine IPA indeed. Orange. Offwhite head dissipates into very thin flilm. Big hop aromas. Sweet malty backbone. A fine IPA indeed.
