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.

Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Created a vigorous sizing of fluffy foam head while the liquid was a hazy glowing golden honey color. The aroma is bold with a heavy dosage of floral green hops that ooze citrus while a grassy aroma lurks in the background. The flavor is initially bitter with the taste of hops that has an organic raw honey and spicy profile to it but there is also a sweet taste of malts that actually convinced me this beer was actually interesting. Sort of reminds me of a west coast pale ale recipe I brewed at home once.

Pours amber with a white head. Very nice hop aroma. Citrus, floral, some pine but more fruity. Malt is noticeable but not overdone. Pretty well balanced and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUN 5, 2013
22oz bottle, purchased at BeerCraft. Pours a generally clear, orange-amber color; off-white head with modest retention and solid lacing. Earthy, floral, and orange-y hop character in the nose; slightly vegetal; some sugary sweetness. Medium-full body; fine-bubbled carbonation; grassy, citrusy, slightly vegetal IPA with a fair bit of core sweetness; alcohol levels keep things lean, but still not a great IPA. Lasting orange bitterness, alcohol, quiet sweetness.

Bottle from Windy City shared with Pat, Sean, Tony and Dan. Pours an amber body with nice thick off white head. Aroma is super caramel, sweet malty bread and light citrus hop. Mouthfeel is medium, super sweet but still holding somewhat of a hop profile - just a bit on the sweet side now. I would love to try this offering fresh and/or on draft.

Solid citrus aroma and palate, decent malt backbone supporting the alcohol, overall nicely made, but a little light on the palate

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2013 Very refreshing taste with balance of citrus, bitter hops and malty sweetness. Very easy to drink ice cold with spicy foods and BBQ.
