Draft. Thick but not dense lace. Faint whiff of grass. Flavors of peach, melon and caramel malts mix well. Brewer’s description promises bitterness, but I get none of it. Terrific beer.

Koskela (400) - Marysville, California, USA - MAY 27, 2015
Grassy hop bitterness and a hint of sweet malt come from this hazy pale copper brew. Grassy and citrus peely with a bit of maltieness come from this mediumish bodied brew. The aftertaste is sweet with a slight bitterness.

arminjewell (8606) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, hazy orange pour with fluffy eggshell colored head, very lively carbonation. Aroma brought notes of caramel, bread, some lemon into a bit of orange peel, orange marmalade into a slight herbal note. Taste was a mix of herbal hops, grass into some lemon, orange, some slight hints of mango into some caramel, toffee, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter, a bit too much carbonation.

Geruch nach Citrus und Eisbonbons, zusätzlich stark brotig. Gute Restsüße. Bitter, aber gut ausgewogen.

Dittoson (24) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Strong in odor with a murky appearance, it provides a nice earthy, almost brush-like flavor that leaves a good sharp taste that quickly vanishes from the palate.

Bottle. Pours a clear deep amber, creamy thin head. Sweet IPA with complex aroma. Decent, balanced, but not on par with Sculpin. From notes 2/15/10.

June 9th, 2012 - When I first arrived in San Diego, Marin Brewery’s beers were here and there, but more or less a rare bird. Spotting them was an exercise in chance. Nowadays (reviewing the beer in June, 2012 and writing the review in February 2014) Marin is much more common, and the market has shuffled over and made room on the couch. I have had some Marin beers that made me see why, but their IPA is not one of them. It’s an adequate IPA, with a uniform IPA taste. The bitterness is underdeveloped, perhaps intentionally, and by San Diegan standards it comes across as the lovechild of a weak kneed IPA and an Amber, with a boozy stickiness and none of the hoppy burn. The hops flavor is there, sure, but without the forward flavor that hop addicts get riled up about. From the hazy dark orange color comes a lovely aroma of cinnamon and peanuts roasted in honey, but again, the hops is somewhat quiet. This is perfectly drinkable, and worth a try, but is a little dull in a roaring, frenzied market filled with exciting India Pale Ales.

Decent but not great. No piney hops. More flowery and Carmel malt flavors and a bit bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kaser (4065) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Poured from 22oz bottle. Cloudy orange. Huge citrus aroma. Taste is bitter but packed with tropical grapefruit and citrus hoppy flavor. Delicious IPA

beertholomeus (1179) - California, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Pours a golden yellow color with a fluffy white head. Hop, citrus, caramel, floral, and malt aroma. Hop, citrus, floral, caramel and light malt flavors. Light body and medium carbonation. Light mouthfeel and slightly underwhelming flavor and bitterness. Floral finish.
