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 - 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.

On tap. Pours with a clear copper body with a small off-white head. Aromas of hops: floral, citrus. Light esters and some caramel bready notes. Flavors are medium bitter with a bitter balance overall. Mostly citrus from the hops with light undertones of earthy and more herbal hops. Some caramel/crystal malt flavors. Medium dry with medium carbonation. Alcohol creeps a little bit for what I was expecting. Pretty good overall.

Ibrew2or3 (7511) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Enjoyed at gabf 2014. It pours with a clear gold body that supports an off white head of foam. The modest aroma offers up a bit of malts and a light degree of hops that are grassy, a bit of pine, some floral and a dash of lime peel. The taste begins with an even hoppiness that’s pine and floral and grassy all at once where there’s a good bit of hop bitterness going on. To midway a little bit of malts rise up to meet the bitter hops and mild flavor hoppiness and take this into the finish. Interesting take where it isn’t so much juicy but rather resiny with a decent malt base.

pine and citrus up front, with a decent malt backbone for balance. dryer than the others, and a touch older (2-3 mo) just like the Mayberry.

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.

Draft...at party. Amber capped nicely. Bright pine and citrus hops in the aroma. Smells chewy also. And is chewy but still refreshing at the same time, good body. Some cannabis hop character too. Leaving lingering array of hop bitterness including pine, fir, cannabis. Nice overall.
