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.

Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours hazy orange gold with an off-white head. The aroma has a very complex set of hops. Med + body. Flavor is lightly roast caramel, with hops that are fruity, citrus, earthy. I think one could pull out about any flavor from this beer. D..n good drink.

Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Fruity hops, sweet mango, tropical fruits, some light candy sweetness, and moderate bitterness. Good stuff.

krumbum (706) - truckee, California, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Deep tan copper with light but covering head. Fall leaf hop smells. Bitter hop front with lingering oily hop. It balance by the end of the sip then juts out a tiny bit so you can remember it like a bitter good by kiss.

RedSox2004 (1443) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Clear amber orange with a two-finger foamy tan head that dissipates to a solid film and leaves nice lace. Aromas of citrus, bready malt and alcohol. Taste is similar and includes some honey and a touch of caramel. Medium body and carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, and a crisp finish.

Gription79 (2615) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber, thanks to Mike. Lots of caramel and toffee, resinous hops, citrusy, pine. There are notes of oxidation in the finish.

GriffDaddy (93) - - JUN 3, 2014
Dark copper pour with a fine tan head. Very light piney aroma, not much on the nose. Flat resiney woody pine palate, kind of syrupy on the tongue. Not a strong first impression, a mild bitter finish. As it warmed, more caramel-biscuit came out but overall just underwhelming. Would I drink again? maybe. Would I order again? no.

From bottle to glass! Pours a light amber with a light head. Aroma has citrus and pine. Taste is nice and hoppy with a nice malty backbone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear dark amber color with lasting ivory head. Nice spicy, tea leaf, pine, citrusy aromas. Medium bodied with soft co2. Pine, floral, tea leaf hoppy bitter flavors with a pale malt sweetness____nicely drying bitter finish---good.
