COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our West Coast inspired India Pale Ale is rich in flavor and abundant in citrus, pine, and floral aromatics created through a wonderful infusion of Citra hops. Completely refreshing and possessing a medium mouthfeel, crisp bitterness, and nearly balanced malts. Finishes dry with a head that creates beautiful lacing down the entire glass. A truly inspired and coveted IPA.

gururyan (638) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Poured from can into snifter. Wonderful burnt orange, medium head and lacing, classic west coast aroma, but the finish...the finish is not good. Lingering bitterness that coats the tongue. Best to have chips and salsa nearby. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beaver (1370) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 27, 2015
12 oz can. Pours clear copper orange with a medium creamy off white head that retains fairly well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet soapy malts with some fruit and stinky, resiny hops.

The flavor is sweet bready malts (slightly biscuity crystal) and fruit with a big resiny, tarry bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a decent IPA, just not my thing. I’m not a huge fan of the biscuit malt and the tarry hops.

On tap at FreshCraft. Amber and clear appearance with a lacy white head. Aroma of fresh citrus, tropical fruits, floral notes and a touch of piney resin. Similar flavor, clean and moderately bitter with a crisp, lingering hoppy finish. Medium body, kind of dry. Overall, a refreshing and tasty IPA.

bigda83 (317) - Jamestown, New York, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Pours a very clear copper color. Aroma had some sweet malts, pine, and resin. Taste showed some citrus fruit, pine, and a bit of caramel and sugar sweetness. Not a bad IPA. Pretty basic and nothing out of the ordinary. Good drinking beer though.

A fantastic IPA. Aromas are musky hops, and cat pee. Beautifully balanced herbal, green hop flavor with a touch of sweetness. Excellent.
