COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our India Pale Ale exhibits a complex hop aroma, largely due to the generous usage of Cascade and Centennial hops, as well as a subtle malt character from the various malts used to achieve the wonderful balance exhibited in a world-class IPA. San Diego has become world renown for the wonderful and flavorful beers produced here – and India Pale Ales are no exception. Our national award winning interpretation of the style reflects both the history of IPA and the American variation of this distinct beverage. We hope you enjoy it! 66 IBU

odannyob (122) - Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2015
Poured from a chilled 32 ounce can into a 32 ounce beer mug; a nice waft of hops hits the nose receptors immediately; a thick, huge creamy head floats atop the glass opening, under the ale, which is a cloudy, light honeyed colored hue. If this was readily available here in these here parts, local IPA lovers would, if given the chance to, love it by buying it. Enjoy them 66 IBU’s, too.
