COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Continuing our summer sun series, Spotless is named to honor our sun that has been spotless for over a year. This aggressive IPA has a rich golden color with a fruity finish. The beer is well hopped to 70 with Willamette and Zeus hops, lending the beer a bright bitterness and a rich hop flavor. Available in 22oz. bottles and draught. ABV 6.5% IBU 70

Pours clear orange with a large white head. Aroma is orange peels and grass. Flavor is bitter and grassy hops. Some orange and a hint of caramel. Finish is a long lingering bitterness. Slightly thin, and muddled by the over the top bitterness.

Bomber. Pours amber-orange with quickly disappearing head. Sugary aroma. Slightly bitter citrus taste with a lot of caramel. Refreshing for summer though.

DYCSoccer17 (3302) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 19, 2010
22 ounce bottle from the Davis Food Co-op. Has the same husky, grainy Full Sail house character that I have become very bored with. Some spicy, grassy hop aromas come through...perhaps some Nelson Sauvin? Smells reminiscent of Anchor Humming, and that is not good. Just sorta swampy. Modestly hazy copper body (perhaps chill haze) with a good whitish head and nice lacing present. Starts sweet before this becomes toasting and cloyingly sweet, milky, and generally repulsive in the middle. Finishes with some spicy, grassy hops. Some floral notes are also in there. This is just entirely fucked up and reminiscent of vomit. What ever happened to Full Sail?

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Bottle: Pours a transparent amber bronze with a stringy-lacing froth of khaki head. Has a sweet lightly toasted caramel and pale malty nose with some fresh resiny grapefruity hoppy notes. Starts with pretty good fullness and sweet light doughy malty flavor with a fresh piny hoppy balance before a clean bittersweet finish. A fresh and very drinkable IPA.

Rich orange pour, white head. Thanks to walter for this one. AKA Dionysus. Tart oranges, citrus peel, resin, honey, syrup. Flavor is bitter and hoppy followed by a nice honey malt and fruity note. Pretty good brew!

Reid (1860) - Salem,Oregon, Oregon, USA - AUG 7, 2010
22 Oz bottle from Roth’s Vista Market,Salem OR Nice looking IPA here deep slightly hazy orange body and a nice thick ,bubbly off white head.Aroma is hoppy but not as much as expected, mainlly grassy, fruity in aspect..some breadieness in the back. Very hoppy flavour to it, but like the label states..very bright and fruity..really gives a "zing" to the exierience. OK on the palate, not astonishing but to style..nice fruity bitter after taste Overall a pretty simple beer actually. Not Full Sails best IPA but acceptable.

The Dan journal #389. Tasted 8/5/10. 22oz bomber. Filtered with a dark golden hue. Webbed off-white head. Aromas of subtle oranges and herbal grassy hops. Medium bodied and rather astringent. Good bitterness with a bright effervescence and a dry finish. Flavors of citrus fruit, especially oranges and grapefruit. Bitter finish and mildly sticky. Very well crafted and drinkable!
