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.)

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.

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.

A very nice sweet malty hoppy beer. very light on hop but enjoyable non the less. FAding head. Good on the tongue very enjoyable. Sweet as nectar, brewed in Cali? Well they did what you said. Could be hoppy but I understand.

mverity (265) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Pours a nice light amber brown with half an inch of cream colored head that faded into wisps, a medium collar and very good lacing. Aroma is toasty/bready malt, with faint pint and citrus hops. Taste is appropriately bitter, with the bready malt taking main stage. There’s some earthy and piney hops behind the big malt presence. Nice bitter bite on the tongue, medium body and med-high carbonation.

Not my cup of tea (bottle of beer). It’s an IPA for sure, but it is lacking somehow. It would probably taste good if I was drinking it while touring the brewery.

A vibrant sunny clear amber body sits beneath a loosely structured 2" off white head, falling in a couple minutes to a frothy cap and ring with erratic splotchy lace all around

Juicy sweet citrus highlights rich floral notes with pine and melon accents with little bitterness, over a sweet caramely malt base, all on an exceptionally smooth, lightly drying medium body with well controlled carbonation

12oz bottle served at 45º into Spiegelau IPA glass

[Bottle] Pour is a deep amber color with about a half inch of dense white head. Strong floral hop nose is accented with caramel and lighter tropical fruits. Taste comes across as more bitter. Pine sap and grapefruit hoppiness. Sticky caramel provides balance. Syrupy, with low carbonation. Tasting notes from early 2012.
