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.)

This is a smooth, rich and strong aroma IPA! One of the best I’ve had. Better than Dogfish!

cathcacr (634) - 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.

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.

The best overall Ipa I have ever had. The taste is perfectly balanced with hops, spice and a sweetness that makes this Ipa like heaven to drink. I wish that nectar brewing was still up in Arcata , but this beer has stood the test of time to be one of the best tasting Ipa’s ever.

A golden amber color. Somewhat clear. Sweet and very hoppy aroma. Fruity and malty mouthfeel the is nothing short of being full. Has an orange head that slowly depletes over time, but it laces well. This finds a good balance between tart and bitter. Soft carbonation with a long finish. An awesome beer.

On tap at Royale in St. Louis - Hop aroma is superb. Blends nicely with malt aroma. Head moderate and short lived. Deep amber-red color. Well balanced between malt and hops. Hop flavor is very enjoyable. I like the caramel malt character as well. Very nice body.

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.

One of my favorite IPAs. Very citrus aroma and taste. Good flavor and not to much bite. It could be a little more bitter so if your looking for a very hoppy and bitter IPA you won't get it here. It is a good tasting IPA that is easy to drink. Beer Buddy for iPhone
