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.

Bottle pour at Milagro’s 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 ... there’s definitely a mellower aspect of that California wet, mushy hoppiness. But it’s 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

jkwood04 (3850) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 1, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pours golden/amber with a white head. Aroma of floral and citrusy and resinous hops, pale and caramel malts, and dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

Berard (291) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle. Orange citrus aroma with a murky orange appearance. Thin white head that dissipates and mild carbonation. Nice hop flavor but limited complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355ml bottle from Whole Foods

Pours dark orange with a smooth head. Aroma of grassy hops, citrus, fruits and malts. Taste is smooth, malty and hoppy with some stingy grassy notes and caramel. Finish is lingering bitter, hoppy and grassy with some maltiness. Okay IPA.
