3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2010 Orange-blonde with a thick rocky head. Aromas of citron, pine and spices. Snappy bitter flavor. Very fizzy on the palate. This has been a go-to session beer for me for a while. One of the best Bay Area IPAs for sure.

Clear, golden-amber with lasting head. Fresh citrus-grapefruit, and mild caramel notes. Mild sweet malt caramel and citrus-grapefruit hops. Refreshing, with the expected bitter finish.

An okay IPA. More ingredients than usually = a bit over average, which means it’s delicious and nice with its fresh wellhopped flavor. Nice and more..

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber with medium white slowly dissipating head. Aroma of citrus and floral hops with some caramel and pine. Decently balanced with enough malt to mix with the hops that do slightly win out in the end. Not an overpowering bitter finish, a little dry with notes of grapefruit & earthy hops.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I haven’t rated this one yet? This was recommended to me b the guys at Willow Bend Liquors in Lutz, FL. Compared to the Dogfish varieties 60/90. An incredible IPA with a fresh and perfectly intense hoppy taste balanced by malts. This is smooth and refreshing. An incredibly good IPA if not one of the best on the market.

I think this is a solid IPA with great flavor. It’s not overpowering with hops.

Bottle from Canals. Golden orange pour with a one finger thick head. Nice hoppy aroma witha sweet pine citrus flavor. Not a bad IPA. This company is pretty solid.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of my favourite IPAs out there. How could you not love a beer made from 43 different hops?! Very citrusy, bright, vibrant floral aromas compliment the attractive amber coloured body. pine, grapefruit and nectar tastes.

Bottle @ home. Pours in golden with a respectable two finger off white head. The aroma is classic IPA, slightly sweet and I can already smell Cascade hops. The flavor is spicy with a dominant pine hoppiness that is very nice. This beer is very smooth on the palate, mouthfeel is medium to light. The finish is hoppy bitterness but very clean. This is a very sturdy IPA that is a nice ensemble with all parts working very nicely together.
