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 Ė 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

Lambister (276) - 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.

vandc01 (158) - North Branch, Minnesota, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Poured from a bomber picked up at Total wine in glendale AZ. Aroma - slight tropical notes. Definitely has some good aromas, but not overwhelming. Taste - very unique tastes. Most front of the tongue beer Iíve had in a while. Overall - a good beer, not sure I need to have it again anytime soon.

SilverfoX (576) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2015
smell peppery hops from a cloudy golden body with a foamy white head, hoppy pine cone flavour too bitterly dry for me.

Reimer96 (1447) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 31, 2015
Pours a lightly hazy golden orange with a big huge frothy white head. Aroma is a beautiful blend of pine, citrus hops, grapefruit, light caramel and sweet pale malts. Taste is pine, grapefruit, citrus fruits, bitter orange peel, sweet pale malts and a light vegetal flavor with a balanced bitterness. The vegetal flavor gives it a weird unfavorable finish but itís not too bad... Get rid of this and this ipa is easily a 4.5.
