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

TheCrowsNest (76) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Golden-orange with a slight haze and rich, khaki head. Great aromas balanced between pine needles, papaya, and fresh cut grass. Cascade and Centennial hops take full control of the flavor, lending a very drinkable bitterness and some nice dank, fruity flavors near the end. Finishes bitter and dry. A classic West Coast IPA.

BrewMaster0912 (42) - Marysville, Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Has a nice amber color with a a frothy top that is a creamy color. Has a hop aroma but smells a bit tart. It has a strong tart/bitter taste and leaves a bad aftertaste and feel on the tongue.

retinadoc (156) - - JUN 19, 2015
Bottle. Grapefruit aroma, average carbonation. Very well finished medium hoppy IPA. Slightly bitter finish. Unlike the current trend of IPAs that try to beguile you with mega hops and high ABV, this one is balanced and very drinkable.

VeinAle (123) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Aromas of pine, peach, and citrus. Pours cloudy yellow with a mild head that fades, carbonation carries it onward via my snifters etches. Flavor is more pine, sweet citrus, with a mild bitter finish. Smooth in the mouth with good subtlety.

A simple and refreshing West coast IPA. Not boring but nothing out of the ordinary other than it’s a great tasting beer.

Pours a huge head on a hazy straw body. The aroma is pine forest, orange and lemon. Nice. The taste is moderately bitter. Solid. The texture is crisp. It’s a nice, balanced IPA.

Lambister (315) - FINLAND - APR 16, 2015
Bottle @ Tommyknocker Helsinki. Light pale straw color with small diminishing head. Bit closed dry nose with some hops and grassy notes. Palate is dry and has nice flavors which are bit short. Not as fresh as I like.

Tap at irreale. Light hazy golden, offwhite lace. Light metallic citrus and pine hop aromatics. Fairly light clay and blueberry base, herbal, piney finish. Needs more substance for my taste.
