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.

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.

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.

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

EdInSaltLake (716) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JAN 20, 2014
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
