Very impressive...one of the most unique IPAs I’ve had from the standpoint of aroma. Light and bitter and refreshing like you want an IPA, but also hugely floraly aromatic....nose is sweet and bright and citrusy, more so than any other IPA I’ve had. Also, looks great, slightly orange and cloudy and with a lot of white lacing. A happy surprise!

On tap at Monk’s Kettle, SF. Another killer West Coast IPA, one of those that gets lost in the shuffle, unfairly given its high quality. Wonderful pour, one of those bright, fluffy brews that makes you jacked up while your bartender is cranking it out. Massively floral nose, with bitters and fruits blending appetizingly. Some biscuit in there for balance and a dollop of spice, but the pine and fruit are just so fresh and unadorned that it’s hard to argue with this fine rendition of the style.

Taster at RateBeer awards dinner. Lots of floral hop aroma. Tasted of citrus hop with a hint of cherries. Very solid IPA.

Taster at RateBeer awards dinner. Aroma was more floral hop with some cherry in there. Flavor was was much of the same with some hop funk. Very good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can I make sense of these notes? Gold orange, no head. Not much (can’t read). Sweet like magic syrup, with citrus hop madness. Taste is the same, plus bonus pine magic. Drier than I thought. Fwoosh. Doesn’t stick in my mouth.

Shared with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. This poured a hazy ice tea color with a fat off white head and a lot of lacing . The nose is very strong with pine and grapefruit. Medium in body and sort of an oily mouthfeel. The flavor is as potent as the aroma with caramel malts and a heap of hop flavors with some tropical fruit, pine, citrus, and flowers. Some bitterness in the finish my mostly a continuation of all the flavors. A really tasty beer and basically how I like my IPAs to behave. My kind of beer.

Bomber from Hayduke. We shared it via facebook chat but he had to leave early. This beer pours dark golden and has lots of carbonation. It is hazy. A nice white head lasts through to the end. The nose is citrus with grapefruit. Floral hops and caramel. It seems to be a classic west coast IPA. First sip says that it is. Grapefruit and caramel. Some floral, too. This is right down the middle as a West Coast IPA. Caramel and those hops do a nice dance of switching places. This is tasty. Nicely done.

22oz bottle and draught. I’d love to know the additional ingredients in this because this is one hell of a tasty and interesting beer. Lots of zesty and spicy tropical fruit (guava and others) and citrus with a certain degree of spice that I can’t pin down. Just a crazy aroma leading into a bitter and dryish flavor with just the right amount of toasty malt. This is on one hand very much like an IPA, and on the other just its own animal. There aren’t many IPAs these days that I try and immediately feel like I need to have again, but this was like a breath of fresh air into the genre. True innovation, not just food coloring or something.
