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

Cervesa amb fort aroma i gust a cítrics, potser el pomelo és el que destaca. Cerveza con fuerte aroma y sabor a cítricos, quizás el pomelo es el que destaca.

IslandHaole (1216) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - OCT 2, 2015
32 oz can all to myself! Big grapefruit peel hops with a bit of spice & caramel. Light haze, orangey color with a foamy head, off-white with a touch of gold/yellow color. Thick lacing. Light carbonation, good feel but IMO, needs a bit more for the style. Well balanced, quality ingredients, very flavorful, alcohol noticeable. This is damned good and almost great!

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2015
Poured into a perfect pint. 3.0 A: Moderately hazed light orange brown color. Just under one finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is below average and just a few wisps of lacing are left. 3.5 S: Citrusy hops - orange, mango, and papaya. A touch of sugary hops as well. Light caramel maltiness and some bready yeastiness. Smells good, but doesn’t stand out among the myriad others. 3.5 T: Moderate bitterness. Citrusy hop flavor with the fruits mentioned above. Bready yeastiness and a mild caramel sweetness. 3.25 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation, but a little bity. Light creaminess and a bit chewy from the yeast. 3.25 D: Again, solid all around, but it loses some zeal from the style being ubiquitous. ★ 724 characters DavoleBomb, Sep 08, 2013

tomekk1978 (1278) - Z±bki, POLAND - SEP 19, 2015
Aromat: z pewnością nie świeży. Mieszanka cytrusów, cytrynowego płynu do naczyń, alkoholu (likieru), chleba, spieczonej skórki od chleba i herbatników. Do tego mokry karton, miód, co sugeruje utlenienie. Raczej nie zachęca do spróbowania. Dopiero po dolaniu dolnej części piwa (z drobinkami chmielu) aromat stał się wreszcie bardziej cytrusowy.

Wygląd: barwa złota, głęboka, klarowna (po dolaniu zamglona z wyraźnymi drobinkami chmielu). Piana biało żółta, zmieniająca swoją strukturę. Od obfitej i grubo pęcherzykowej do niewielkiej i drobno pęcherzykowej. Ogólnie umiarkowanie trwała.

Smak: niewielka słodycz, nuty miodowe, kwaskowe, alkoholowe, drożdżowe. Po prostu nieświeże. Dopiero po dolaniu dolnej części piwa zaczęło się coś dziać. Goryczka powyżej średniej owocowo- ziołowa, wsparta alkoholem. Nieco drażniąca i raczej długa. Średnia do krągłej pełnia, niskie do umiarkowanego wysycenie i kwaskowo- goryczkowy finisz z wyraźną nutą alkoholową, rozgrzewająca przełyk.

Po raz kolejny trafia do nas piwa amerykańskie, które jest wyraźnie nieświeże. Nuty utlenienia aż bolą i trudno je tak naprawdę ocenić. Szkoda zwłaszcza, że trzeba za takie gnioty zapłacić ponad 15 zł. Niestety bije to w browary z USA, które będą się nam kojarzyć niezbyt dobrze. Świeże być może warto, to sprowadzone do Polski na pewno nie.

Spab (3229) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2015
650 ml bottle courtesy of MK. Pours a clearish golden orange colour with good-sized whiteish head with solid retention. Aroma is earthy and piney with some citrus and caramel. Flavour has lots of earthiness and pine with a subtler citric hoppiness and some underlying caramel maltiness. Drying finish. Good one.
