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.

12oz bottle. Poured a light amber color with a fingers worth of an off-white head that left great lacing. The aroma was of citrus, pineapple and mango. The taste centered more around the pineapple and citrus, but had a good deal of sweetness that balanced the beer very well.

Bottle at Good, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of citrus hops, tropical fruits, and syrupy malts. Flavour of oranges, citrus hops, and some dry caramel malts. Decent IPA.

Without dates on the bottles, it's a bit like Russian roulette if your going to get a reasonably fresh hoppy bottle or a tired, tropical, malty bottle... With that said, like Racer 5, a great go to West Coast style IPA. I think Racer 5 has a bit better mouthfeel, though for a readily available IPA, no complaints.. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

It’s a tie between this and Racer 5 for a great go to IPA six pack. They’re both great.

One finger of head on a medium straw colored body. An aroma of lemon and grapefruit, really nice. The taste is lemon with a strong grapefruit balanced with a good malt backbone. The texture is soft with moderate carbonation and medium body. A solid and above average IPA.
