Our first beer brewed and released to the market. The IPA style was developed by the British to enable beer to survive a long voyage by ship from Britain to the colonies in India to supply the troops during the late 1700s and early 1800s. Beer usually spoiled on the trip, so a higher alcohol content and additional hops were used as natural preservatives. Our version is the American style, using a higher hopping rate than the British style, and American hops that produce citrusy and herbal/floral aromas. Moderate bitterness.

This golden colored beer has a citrusy aroma. It has a good IPA flavor but isn't too bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty run of the mill west coast ipa with not much malt character and a lot of bitterness from citrusy snd piney hops. Water charscter seemed off to me, too much sulfate or carbonate or something.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2015 Bomber poured into a Stein. Nice aroma, minimal lacing and good mouth feel with tasty lingering hop bitterness! Well done.

Slight grassy, citrusy aroma. Very light and caramel-like. Copper with white head. Great thirst quencher. Very good example of British IPA albeit too strong. Nice assertive bitter finish.

Bottle. Clear golden orange beer with a large white head. Aroma is fruity with notes of citrus, peaches, oranges, caramel and pine needles. Flavor is fruity with notes of caramel, citrus, peaches, oranges and pine needles. Balanced but not super fresh.

Enjoyed at gabf 2014. It pours with a nice deep clear gold body that supports a thin tan head of foam. The aroma is very light offering up spicy to grassy hoppiness and then followed by some malts and then almost a cracker sort of note. The taste is smooth and gets into a decent amount of pine hops balanced by some malt sweetness. To midway it gets a little grapefruit and tangelo like and those citrus notes only build into the finish. At the finish a thin feeling body is noticed but this doesn’t really distract from the taste all that much. Pretty nice.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2015 this beer didn’t stand out at all. It was however an average iPa and was quite fresh. Citrus hops slight fruitiness and a light malt balance. Not bad but I could see a lighter iPa like this fading quickly in a bottle." After twice fresh from the source - just not a fan.

Definitely hoppy. maybe a touch out of balance on the aftertaste. Malty on the knows but hoppy on the finish. The two match all too briefly in the middle.

From a tap at the Sierra Nevada Beercamp across America. The pour is a light gold with a spruce melon taste .

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle , golden with a good sized white head. Nose is mild, mostly malt, some mild pine aroma. Taste was somewhat balanced, body was on the thin side of medium, with a oily texture. Lively beer, with an abrupt finish. Drinkable, not too bad, but not up there with my favorite west coast IPA’s.
