This is an amazingly smooth IPA. I first had it with pizza in Fremont, CA, and fell so in love with this beer that shortly after I drove to Marin/Larkspur just to have it at the brewery! Itís a great IPA, if you get the chance to try it, donít pass it up.

Another amazing IPA, really puts the cascade hop/grapefruit taste forefront, which is a good thing for me. Just behind the great hoppy beers at Russian River.

On a good day, this beer is one of my favorites, but they arenít the most consistent brewery around.

On tap at Toronado. Orange-brown color. Earthy hop aroma with pine and citrus. Taste is the same but amplified tremendously. The beer is amost chewey in your mouth and has good amount of malt to poost the flavor. A variety of hop flavors dance on the palate and linger for a long time. i am not a huge fan of Marinís brews but this is a really great beer.

Oh, my! Tis good. Tis very freakiní good. Huge floral boquet of hops. Deep flavor of malts, with fantastic bitterness. A slight reddish hue with this white head, but does leave stickly lacing. Excellent!

This is my favorite IPA as of right now. Rated 100 points by the Bev Mo beer ambassadors. Not very hoppy for an IPA, tastes between a pale and an IPA. Nice light malty flavor as well. I love Marin!!

On tap at Toronado. Oh my, this is the pure essence of IPA. Stripped of the traditional carbonation, what remains is the residual hop nectar, and it is fantastic. The smell was delicious: fruity, piney...this is are fine IPA, made excellent by the traditional hand-pump serving mechanism. Lovely.

An English-tinged interpretation of the IPA style. Big time earthy flavors characterize the malt, and the hops are minty and a bit over-powered. Average at best.

On tap at streets of London for beer week! Aroma is very nice, floral hops, grapefruit and citrus. Flavor reminds me of pliney! Smooth bitterness, with a balanced maltiness. Oily and thick. Nice medium head with lacing down the glass.
