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

Kroney (158) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 29, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2013 Pours an orange copperish color, with a thick white head. Big citrus hop aroma that gives way to almost a stale malt smell at the end. Just like the first smell, the first taste is big citrus hop(orange, grapefruit, and even a little lemon zest)... but there’s something not "fresh" about the malt background. Maybe its the bottle I got, but this leaves a lot to be desired, especially with how many good things I’ve heard about this beer. Decent, but probably not worth the $6+/bomber.

Fat på Flying Dog. Dimmig bärnsten med vitt skum. Doftar söt humle och granskog. Smakar detsamma med kraftig granskog i eftersmaken. Rätt average, men god! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pours a nice orange with nice white head, found it more malty than bitter, not really into that when it comes to IPAs but solid beer

A bit too malty, no clear character to the hops and almost boozy. Not bad per se, but lacks character or direction

A hazed golden orange ipa with a super thick frothy light mocha head. In aroma, light biscuit malt with good floral hops, light citrus, OK. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with grassy floral hops, light treacle, orange pulp, pleasant.
