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.)

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - NOV 16, 2007
Dull Copper pour, slight head, Some slight bitterness, followed by sweetness on the first sip, Mellows well, as sweetness overtakes in flavor, very floral aroma, great drinker!

Truly a classic IPA. Found to be just as delightful as Russian Rivers Pliny the Younger but easier to get. Beautiful label as with taste is even appealing to the ladies. Tap Handle kicks butt as well.

Pours out a nice coppery color with a small beige head. aroma is fairly hoppy, with a nice note of citrus and grass. The flavor was somewhat better than the aroma. Had a bit of sweetness and a nice resin hit along with a balance of hops. Over all a solid IPA.

Speedle (266) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 18, 2007
amber with a small white head...floral aroma, sweet citrus/grapefruit...head disapears quickly....taste of tropicals fruits, smooth bitter/sweet taste...nice malt in the background...finishes with a sharp bite....I’m putting this on my list as a contender with some of the higher rated IPAs...I wish I had tried this sooner, I think I was turned off by the label

cathcacr (644) - Oregon, USA - OCT 1, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2008 A fine and distinctive example of this style. Very crisp, very fresh floral, citrusy presentation, followed on the back end by honeyey sweetness, full body, soft and smooth finish. The balance of bitter and sweet in this is top-notch.

12 oz bottle. Clear orange brown with a small off-white head. Some lacy strands. Nice nose of caramel and orange with a dash of sea salt. Light carb but body has some heft. Nectarine and caramel with quinine, lime peel bittering.

I was a little worried when Firestone took over SLO but the IPA has remained the same. A golden IPA with a great balance of floral and bitterness. Still one of my favorites.
