COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA is created from a base of Pale and Crystal malts and is aggressively hopped throughout the brewing process with a final hop addition in the conditioning vessel. A beautiful flowery hop aroma will greet you as you dive into this hop lover’s dream. A middle caramel malt presence balances high hop bitterness with hop flavor end to end... learn to love hops! (Editor’s Note: originally brewed by Humboldt Brewing Company under the name "Humboldt IPA Nectar" until their acquisition by Firestone Walker.)

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Lagunitas mason jar From: Albertson’s in Alpine, Calif. Price: $1.67 ($9.99 for a mix 6-pack) Purchased: Sept. 30, 2014 Consumed: Oct. 1, 2014 Misc.: N/A Poured a caramel, orange, clear color with 3-to-4 fingers of khaki white head. Tons of good looking streams of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Good amount of layered foamy lacing on the sides of the glass all the way down. Great retention on the top all the way down as well. (Sight - 4.06) Smelled a pleasant whiff of hops right away. Got floral hops, Citra hops, caramel, toffee, pine, good deal of bitterness, Cascade hops and some even some roasty smokiness. Very nice on the nose. (Smell - 4.21) Tasted toffee, caramel, roasty malts, buttery notes, floral hops, Citra hops, orange rind and rye hops. Almost seems more like a strong ale than an IPA. (Taste - 3.79) Medium body. Oily texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Long, slightly bitter finish. (Feel - 3.81) This was a very nice IPA. Big fan here. I’d have it again for sure. (Overall - 3.88) 3.91 88 B+

"a little better balance than the pale (more malt), but the hops are stronger too...and just a touch too bitter. overall, an aromatic, but just ok, effort. 7/11 a little better and more balanced than remembered. 11/11 perfumey super strong aroma"

Draft. Mellow Mushroom Conyers. Pours a mostly clear golden with decent white head. Bigger malt presence than I prefer, but with some nice citrus burst. Well made, but nothing separates it from the crowd. Medium bitterness.

Light malty on the aroma. Some honey citrus note. Looks fine. Little head. Golden color. Taste is pine. Dandellion. A little lemon. Palate is watery but decently smooth. But hops linger a bit long. Overall an ok beer.

A clear amber beer with a small white head. The aroma is citrus and tropical fruit with light malt. The flavor is grain, floral and citrus hops, mild bitterness.

nakedwhendrunk (2199) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a decent gentle hazy amber to slight brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. The lacing that was left in the wake of the dieing head was somewhat messy and foamy thick. The smell had a decent balance of citrus hops to caramel malts. There seemed to a decent toffee underneath. The taste was bitter and sweet at separate times in the beer. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body. The carbonation was somewhat harsh as it carried what it should to be decent for the style and for me. Overall, good AIPA I could have again.

Since we’re trying to move and my glasses are packed, I enjoyed from the bottle.... All six of em. Aroma is nice citrusy and grapefruity. The flavour i has a nice bitterness, great citrusy notes. The palate is on the watery dry side that dissipated quickly.

Tap at Lazy Dog. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin layer of off white head. Aroma of bitterness and malts. Same in the taste, with a nice balance.
