COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bitter and bold. This single hop american style IPA features 100 percent Columbus Hops for an intense citrus, floral and spicy aroma and flavor. Five different malts form the rich backbone that balances the hops’ 77 IBUs. The resinous mouthfeel is followed by a clean, dry hopped finish that refreshes and satisfies. Additional Information: Delve into this beer and you are going to see the complexities that this highly hopped beer has to offer. Grapefruit, orange, lemon, and flower essences are just a few flavors/aromas you are sure to find.

On tap at the brewery. It pours orange with a disappearing off white head. The aroma is caramel, toffee, tropical hops with a touch of weed. The flavor is very bitter with tropical, grassy, weedy hops and a touch of toffeeish malt. The mouthfeel is a tad frothy with a strong bitter finish.

From a bottle poured a straw color with a good amount of head. Nice citrusy hoppy flavor with a lingering finish.

Growler… Hazy orange ale with a small, white head. Fruity, floral aroma – pineapple, mango and peach stand out. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Heavily bitter and fruity. Finishes crisply and heavily bitter. Kudos to DuffManSW for floating the growler my way!

1 liter growler thanks to Tim, pours hazy reddish orange with a medium off white head......excellent lacing. Aroma is wonderful. Light citrus, dank grass and pine. Very earthy. Flavor is rich toasted malts and bitter pine nuts with a nice big grass and pine hop profile that dry the mouth out in the finish with notes of citrus peel coming forward. Very nice IPA.

I had this on tap at Hangar 24 in Redlands. This was a nicely done IPA: good citrus hops but nicely balanced.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2011 A growler from a friend. Gorgeous pour, really clear and great looking small head. The aroma was nearly absent, I couldn’t smell anything, which I found disappointingly remarkable considering a fresh growler pour. The taste had a lot of orange and lemon peel zest. Nice clear finish and if this is 7%, I could not tell, it went down crazy smooth. Overall a nice IPA, just surprised from no scents/aromas. May 19th, bumped up from 3.6 to 3.9: This is a bomber and smells SO good, the Columbus is very inviting aroma, a very good enjoyable IPA!

On tap at the brewery. Poured a hazy light amber with no head and no lace. Aroma of old orange candies, citrus hops, orange peel, relatively dank hops. Taste of butternut squash, overripe cantaloupe, soapy hops, resinous hops. Gets a bit of a vegetal character. Average.
