COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Modeled on the beers brewed for the long sea voyage from England to India, our India Pale Ale unites a strong malt backbone with a bitter and aromatic finish. Hopped at 2 pounds per barrel with Horizons, Simcoes and Amarillos, our IPA is fully prepared for the long journey from the slopes to the hot tub.

Pours an orange color typical of IPA’s. Aroma is floral with hints of citrus possibly tangerine. Taste is a bit on the bitter side with a citrus and floral taste throughout. You can taste the malt and hops in the beer. This beer is for people who like a bitter beer. Overall sub-par in my book but I am not a huge IPA fan in the first place.

headheldhigh (100) - Walnut, California, USA - APR 2, 2011
On tap this brew pours out a golden yellow with a nice head. Smells of hops pine trees and lemon peels. Tastes of California hops and citrus fruits. Don’t expect Pliny the elder Arrogant bastard or DFH 120 but a refreshing ipa. Went well with hot wings and smoked cheddar.

DYCSoccer17 (3357) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 20, 2011
16 ounce sample on tap at the Davis Graduate. The aroma is nice and hoppy with pine and citrus orangey notes. Some grapefruit is pleasant, too. Nice aroma. Transparent copper-orange body with a small, off-white head present. Trace lacing. Starts lightly hopped with floral notes before this becomes very husky and toasted with lots of tannins in the middle. Finishes with a scant herbal hop character and light bitterness. Epic IPA, eh? The only thing epic about this is how forgettable it is...

Pours orange in color. Aroma is strong and woodsy. Taste is strong too. But it stops heavy hopping midway through and has a solid set of flavors.

Tap at Mammoth mountain. Pours copper with a frothy off white head, nice lacing. Nice nose of citrus hops and caramel malts. Medium bitter on the finish.

marcus (6788) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Bottle from BevMo Arden. Pours light copper with a generous beige head and a toffee aroma. There is a sweet hearty caramel malt flavor with a citrus and pine hop bitterness.

hayduke (3474) - Eureka, California, USA - JAN 5, 2011
This 22-oz bottle came from from BevMo in Sacramento, CA. It poured a clear copper with very nice foamy off-white head that tended toward light yellow. Medium body and a very slick and oily mouthfeel The flavor is lightly roasted caramel malts with a big hop profile with a good dose of citrus, flowers, and pine hops. Lots of resin in this one. The finish is long, dry and bitter. I like this a great deal, and would serve with pride to any of my beer loving friends.

bhensonb (11534) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Bomber from the Arden BevMo in Sacramento, CA. Pours copper with a 2 finger foamy beige head. Mixed aroma of roast malt and sugary/floral hop. Sugary? Med body. MIld carb. Flavor is roast malt, quickly covered over with citrus and floral hop. Maybe some resin underneath. This is sort of a over hopped ESB. To my perception. Pretty good stuff.

West USA trip 2010. Bottled. The aroma has grapefruits, pine. Hazy, ornage coloured with an off-white head. The taste is citric, bit malty, piney. Bit harsh mouthfeel. Okay.
