Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 21, 2007
On tap at Lucky Baldwin’s IPA Festival ’07. Medium amber-gold color with a loose head. Very light hops aroma with some lager-like characteristics, light banana and caramel. Light fruit and malt notes in the flavor--nothing too distinctive here. Light malt body with some bitterness in the mouthfeel doesn’t leave a lasting impression. One of the most unexcitind "double" IPAs I’ve had.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2007 draft @ lucky baldwins IPA fest - amber colored with a creamy head. definitely a PNW style IPA/IIPA. lots of grapefruity hops with a slightly sweet malt background. solid but at the same time kinda run of the mill IPA. nothing extrordinary, but very drinkable

FlacoAlto (4152) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 9, 2007
Sampled at Lucky Baldwin’s IPA festival, June 2007
The beer is mostly clear, with a reddish hued, copper color. It is topped by a barely one-finger thick, light tan colored creamed froth for a head. The smell is quite sweet and fruity; notes of tropical fruit, candied orange peel, melon, lychee, tangelo, mandarin orange syrup all jump from the glass and are even noticeable as it just sits in wait on the table in front of me.

The flavor is not nearly as sweet as the aroma suggests, but that exotic, smooth fruitiness still plays a big role in the flavor. Actually, this beer is very light bodied, even for a west coast DIPA. A nice, bracing bitterness runs throughout the beer and it becomes increasingly bitter and even a bit astringent even after the beer has left my mouth. Underneath the hop onslaught there is a dry, fresh ground, malt character that is sort of biscuit-like with some soda-cracker notes noticeable, but only at times. Otherwise this beer is purely hop driven, there is even some menthol and even mint-like flavors from the hops too.

This has a very tropical fruit driven hop character and it is very drinkable. It is quite interesting and I am not quite sure what to think of its über-fruitiness, bit I do like it in the end. Actually some more malt and even a touch more body would amplify the hop character a bit to make this even more over the top.
