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.)

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2007 12 oz bottle via Liquid Solutions. Pours a clear amber with a small head. Nose is mostly orange and caramel. Taste is the same, with a somewhat hot acidic finish. Bittersweet honey/english hop aftertaste makes you long for the next drink. Medium body, lightly carbonated. ...a very good...no- a GREAT brew.

This was a very good IPA and a new find for me at my local bar that specializes in craft beers. Nice orange color with a thin white head. Hops abound, this is a great beer for the style and one I will revisit.

Amber with a nice bubbly head. Sweet floral aroma with some citrus. Sticky sweet taste with a good grapefruit/orange hop bite. Lots of caramel malt, but a decent balance. Long grapefruit finish.

This has a big piney aroma.....love that. Pours a bright orange with an off white head. Lacing is plentiful. There’s not much to dislike about this IPA. Caramelly, fruity front end with a balanced, hoppy finish. Very good for the style.

This brewery never ceases to impress me....strong floral and grapefruit aromas, and a light scent of pine. the flavor is well balanced with strong notes of sweetness...carmel-like and orange peel. a light toasty flavor too. the palate is the best part...a good amount of carbonation and bitterness is perfect. will def drink again

Well done West Coast IPA...restrained, not the hop bomb that many brewerys are producing. The bitterness is a bit rough but it has a great floral citrus aroma.

TomDecapolis (4427) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - AUG 6, 2006
Thanks to tomgibson for sharing this again. Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with an average bubbly off white head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit and caramel malt to balance. Flavor of malts, sweetness up front followed by a citrus hop splash.

bubbleflubber (1746) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 6, 2006
Pours caramel-amber into the glass. It has a very nice thick, frothy lasting head and great retention and sudsy lace. The nose is spot on for caramel. The flavors are of sweet malt, caramel, toffee, very light citrus, and a medium-mild hop back palate. The finish is slightly peppering, very dry pine hops. A sweetly syrup mouthfeel on this, sticky but not necessarily refreshing for heat (outdoor temperatures NOR food-flavor pairings), as is the case with most IPA’s. Overall, a decently unique take on the IPA. Not completely indicative of style, but a very good malt-sensitive offering. For those who enjoy sweet(er) complexities, this will be quite comforting and enjoyable.

On tap @ Firestone Walker poured a clear copper with a lasting white head. Aromas of carmel, orange, light lemon and a hint of pine. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, orange and light pine with a smooth lightly bitter finish.
