COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For the Spring 2014 Release in our Custom IPA Series we’ve partnered with the LA River Revitalization Corp to brew 2020 IPA—a dark red IPA, with a rich pine aroma, light roast, all balanced by a hearty hop bitterness. 2020 IPA celebrates the Greenway 2020 Project, which will connect 51 miles of the LA River—transforming it from a neglected, concrete riverbed to a connected, public green space by the year 2020.

bhensonb (12587) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 21, 2015
Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours ruddy amber with a beige head. Aroma is pretty piney! Med + body. Flavor is hop forward - quite pine, a little earthy. The roasty malt backbone is detectable. But this is hoppy stuff. Finishes both malty and bitter. Strongly bitter. Good drink.

Draft at the brewery. Pours clear copper with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like sweet malt, caramel, some booze, and grapefruit hops. Medium body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like sweet caramel, orange citrus hops, malty, and light booze.

PartyFowle (669) - - APR 10, 2015
Draft. Crimson-colored, dark but very clear. Sticky layer of sandy tan. Aroma is grapefruit peel, pine needles, caramel, biscuits and a little toast. The flavor begins with Hawaiian honey rolls, followed closely by citrusy and floral hop character and finishing with a flash of caramel and subtle toast. Good balance, finishes squeaky clean.

$5 Sunday draft at Aces and Ales. Pours Amber with a pillowy beige head. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, a hint of lime and mango. Flavor is caramel, mango up front leading to grapefruit and pine bitterness. A bit of rye spice as well. Solid.
