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.)

Don’t see a date. Think of a sweeter kind of union jack, lots of sweet crackery malt.

Une robe cuivrée qui se targue d’aboir une belle tête. Quelques traces se collent ici et là. Un nez de caramel, de houblons aux agrumes et de mangue avec une ouverture vers les fleurs. C’est intéressant mais c’est trop doux pour mes narines. Une bouche bien portante en malts caramélisés. Dommage que les fruits y restent collés. Des saveurs plaisantes qui sont d’une autre époque. Cette IPA est une bonne IPA comme on en brassait dans le temps. Au palais, je note un corps de moyen-fort avec un pétillement adéquat et une texture huileuse. La finale est équilibrée, à cheval sur les notes douces et les notes amères.

Bottle: Amber color with sweet fruity nose. Also sweet tasting with more hops than malt. Solid west coast IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From bottle. Pours amber with off-white head. Floral aroma with grapefruit. Grapefruit flavor, with definite caramel sweetness. Nice and refreshing.

Ferris (3896) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2014
Draft - Floral grapefruit hops and caramel sweetness. Clear copper with a good rich beige head. Grapefruit with upfront bitterness followed by the sweet caramel. Decent.

beerfest5 (1147) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 21, 2014
Nice but fairly typical West Coast IPA. Nice hop aroma, but perhaps a bad bottle that had sat too long on the shelf...seemed like the caramel malt had gone off a little. Nice but forgettable.

Bottle. Nice aroma, great balance. Smooth finish. Great IPA that leans toward the refreshing side vs. the hop bomb.

Bookseeb (113) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Appearance holds a golden amber color supporting a fair head that dissipates leaving fair lace. Smell has a very nice sweet malt aroma balanced by the grapefruit bitter of the hops. Taste again has the sweetness of the malt with the grapefruit piney bitter of the hops. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. A sweet tasty IPA.

Strife21 (139) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 Pours dark amber with light sticky head. Smells of sweet floral hops, resin, citrus and mango. Tastes of sweet hops and caramel bitters to a resin and grapefruit after taste. Pretty one sided and not as hoppy as I prefer. Easy to drink tho and goes down smooth. Medium body lightly carbonated.
