COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Say hello to Betty IPA! She’s an American IPA boasting a blend of Mosaic, Citra, Simcoe and Centennial hops, and starting in March she’ll be the first new beer to join our year-round lineup in over 3 years! We spent 8 months perfecting this hop blend, and we love the huge range of juicy aromas and flavors we were able to hit: tropical fruit, citrus zest, berries, stone fruit and pine are all packed in, soaring over a base of pleasant bitterness and drinkable 6.5% ABV.

With Betty we had one goal: brew the modern, American IPA that we’d want to drink ourselves, every day. Each time you drank a batch of Experimental IPA in our Tasting Room you helped us build this beer, and we can’t wait for you to meet Betty.

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Pint mug From: Barons Market in Alpine, Calif. Price: $9.99 for a 6-pack Purchased: June 19, 2015 Consumed: June 19, 2015 Misc.: N/A Poured an orange, light honey, semi-clear color with 5-to-6 fingers (bad pour by me) of khaki white, frothy head. Good amount of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Good amount of foamy, layered, spiderweb lacing on the sides of the glass. Very good retention. (Sight - 4.13) Smelled a potent good whiff of hops, getting Citra, Simcoe, Mosaic, floral, tropical, Centennial, grapefruit, light mango, Cascade and faint Nelson Sauviin. Wonderful. (Smell - 4.50) Taste wasn’t quite as good as the nose, but that was understood with my expectations. Got floral, orange blossom, Mosaic, Citra, light Simcoe, Sauvin, Centennial, grapefruit and nectarine rind. (Taste - 3.88) Medium-to-light body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, slightly bitter, but floral finish. (Feel - 4.00) This was just a really good IPA. I have to say that I was mightily surprised. Can’t wait to have my other five. (Overall - 4.13) 4.08 91 A-

Bottle. Dark gold with a big fluffy white head. Aroma is tropical fruit, caramel and pine. Taste follows and adds a little earthy bitterness and citrus. Medium mouthfeel and moderate carb. Very good.

Barnacle_Ed (40) - Milpitas, California, USA - MAY 17, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2015 Bottle. Hazy gold with moderate white head. Floral and pine nose, nicely hopped without being oppressive. Great and fresh taste - hops, pine, honey, citrus, peach, and a hint of caramel. Crisp and light feel. Aftertaste is sweet initially but nicely gives way to a bitter resiny feel. Quite nice, wish it was easier to find here.

Draught at the Blue Palms Brew House, Hollywood, CA. Clear orange golden colour with a small white head. Sweet fruity and citrusy hops, moderate bitterness and sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is fruity hops, mild bitterness and caramel maltiness. Balanced and tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

slowrunner77 (6925) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 22, 2015
nice IPA - adequately hoppy, still tame enough to be a daily brew. I love the hops used...tropical, citrus and pine all in one. feel is a little thin. one catch - date your dang bottles! it’s not that hard. Won’t by again as I don’t know if it’s fresh. This one seemed somewhere between fresh and old....

Draft. Aroma of honey, caramel and floral hops, think Centennial aroma plus some malty sweetness. Flavors are strikingly malt-forward, lots of toffee and caramel and some peanut-brittle nuttiness, with some orangey, stone-fruit hops backing it all up. A beautiful, layered beer, the kind of IPA you want to drink every day.

22oz bomber. Dark golden color with one finger head. Tropical fruit and pine aroma. Easy drinking and an IPA where I can easily finish the bomber.

Dogbrick (9366) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 24, 2015
On draught at Simmzy’s. Pours a clear golden color with a medium bright white head that dissipates steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Citrus, hops and malt in the nose. Medium body with flavors of citrusy hops, pine and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a grapefruit and hops aftertaste. May have suffered a bit from trying right after Pliny but still a solid IPA.
