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

Poured into tulip glass a hazy amber with small quick head that receded to the edge of glass. Aroma was grapefruit as is the taste. A small amount of bitter in the finish. A little lighter than many of the current American IPA’s was perfect with the pizza I had it with. Mouthfeel was thin.

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.

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 I’ve had in a while. Overall - a good beer, not sure I need to have it again anytime soon.

SilverfoX (542) - 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 (1427) - 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 it’s not too bad... Get rid of this and this ipa is easily a 4.5.

MrHult (381) - SWEDEN - JAN 16, 2015
Tap på Bishops arms Hornstull. Dimmig guldfärgad vätska med hyfsat tjockt skum som hänger kvar. Frisk tropisk doft med maltig kropp. Fruktig frisk när den kommer in i munnen men övergår snabbt till en maltig tallbarskänsla ala dubbelipa. Smarrig
