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.

Poured from a chilled 32 ounce can into a 32 ounce beer mug; a nice waft of hops hits the nose receptors immediately; a thick, huge creamy head floats atop the glass opening, under the ale, which is a cloudy, light honeyed colored hue. If this was readily available here in these here parts, local IPA lovers would, if given the chance to, love it by buying it. Enjoy them 66 IBU’s, too.

A taste from a friend (bottle) @ Vihreä Haltiatar. Pours cloudy golden with a medium head. Aroma is malts with plenty of fruits and a hint of liquorice. Flavor is malts with fermented fruits, liquorice and hops. Nice.

miquelcrush (1937) - Granollers, SPAIN - OCT 2, 2015
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 (1159) - 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 (1614) - 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
