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

Nice and pleasant IPA. From bomber, poured hazy gold and small head. Not much of an aroma. Very hop forward but not over powering like a lot of IPA’s now a days. Goes down nice, smooth and refreshing. Gently surprised by this one and it furthers cements San Diego’s place in the craft beer world.

Boutip (5233) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 2, 2015
Bottle: Poured a light orangey color ale with a nice foamy head. Aroma of dry citrusy hops notes with light piney notes is refreshing. Taste is a nice mix between some refreshing piney notes with some light citrus and dry caramel notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Well brewed IPA that doesn’t necessarily steer form the beaten track.

beer-yum (882) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 26, 2015
Alluring citrus aroma in a golden amber pour. Hop forward balance with restrained sweet malt body. Palate cleansing finish is crisp clean and sustained. A good beer - but nothing exceptional.

tricksta_p (2099) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma of citrus, pine, malt, tropical fruits, herbal notes, earthy hops. Flavour is moderate sweet and medium bitter. Well-balanced and earthy, on the malty side with fruity notes. Though I like my IPA more of a fruit bomb, this one is surprising and enjoyable.
