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.

Nice, balanced hop aroma that dances between pine, citrus and resinous hop oils. The flavor is clean, balanced and finishes quick leaving a clean & refreshing hop bite lingering on.

12oz bottle to pint. Pours hazy orange amber. Short white cream head. Aroma is HUGE fresh WC hops...pine and citrus. Taste is hop forward, roasty caramel malt backbone. Carb is low. Mouthfeel is medium-light. Finish is fresh dry hops...pine and light citrus. Good for a hopped-up bitch.

Excellent IPA! Really enjoyable in a tulip glass with some kettle corn. Nose: Hops, slight malt Tasting notes: Dry hops, with a little kettle oil. Barley malt out the ying yang! Excellent mouthfeel: Has 65 IBUs, for the fellow Hopheads out there

Barnacle_Ed (40) - Milpitas, California, USA - APR 16, 2015
Bottle pour. Golden and hazy with generous head that dissipated fairly quickly. Pine and citrus smells with some wheaty malt, but fairly weak in the nose. Taste is well-balanced between hops and malt, along with some sweeter notes making their way in. Lightly oily mouthfeel without being oppressive. Very good for the price I paid for it ($7 for a 6-pack) but not sure I’d go out of my way to pick it up again.

ffbot (57) - Oakland, California, USA - APR 14, 2015
Aroma: roasty, grass, some spice or other unidentifiable. Color is clear, sparkling, with no head or lacing. Taste is nice, loooong aftertaste that lingers. Some interesting hoppiness. Solid IPA comparable to most

16oz draft. The best thing about this beer is the taste. Very weak ln the aroma and color. Flavors of bubblegum, lemongrass. Easy drinking.

drpimento (2482) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - APR 1, 2015
Seems to be an American IPA with some Brit accents. Appearance is good with a very long lasting, cream-colored head, some lace, and a clear amber color. Aroma is mostly caramel malt with bit of hop. Flavor is strongly hop bitter, carbonic tang up front, malt sweet in back with a very long hop bitter resin finish. Palate is good.Good drinking beer.

bnoel09 (474) - Elk Grove, California, USA - MAR 28, 2015
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.
