COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full bodied and noticeably more amber in color than most California IPA. Our flagship IPA is bursting with fruity hop character, balanced well by a rich, silky body. The Simcoe hop makes itʼs distinct presence known with pine and passionfruit notes with Cascade filling in. Itʼs hop aroma is complex and hearty, and is mirrored in the palette. This IPA has a pronounced malt profile with a touch of caramel showing, yet the beer finishes dry. The bigger body gives more of a base for the hop character to grow from, and more to balance.

Citrus, light caramel aroma. Bitter, a little stale-ish, kind of? Citrus fruit and pepper hop flavor, with dry, light caramel malty flavor. Firm but nice bitterness. Nice mouthfeel; A little "heavy", but not too much. Thanks to Mike...

Dark orange and slightly cloudy. Pine scents and not too hoppy for a California IPA. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

joeneugs (2932) - Livermore, California, USA - SEP 21, 2013
22 oz. bottle. It pours a deep orange/copper color with a nice creamy orange head. The aroma is nice fresh pine and citrus with some candied hop and caramel sweetness. The flavor is full with fruity hops… grapefruit, passionfruit, peach and pine all with a reasonable dose of specialty malt and hints of caramel sweetness. Good strong bitter finish. Really a nice IPA.

Ferris (2026) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 1, 2013
Draft - Perfumy and pine on he nose. Clear copper with a great persistent head. Flowery, slight grapefruit and a great malt backbone to balance. More of an east coast style. Finishes with a nice mellow grapefruit. Super IPA.
