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 loverís dream. A middle caramel malt presence balances high hop bitterness with hop flavor end to end... learn to love hops! (Editorís Note: originally brewed by Humboldt Brewing Company under the name "Humboldt IPA Nectar" until their acquisition by Firestone Walker.)

Bottle from Liquor Collection Honolulu 271214. Seriously good looking beer with a golden orange colour. Citrus and Passionfruit in the aroma with a big thick creamy mouthfeel.

From a bottle...Light malt on the aroma. Pours a decent head with good lacing. Taste is pine and a little lemon. Palate is watery but decently smooth. A really good and unique IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Itís okay. Not much on the aroma except some weird sweetness. Thatís all Iím able to get. Taste is about the same. Not much but some weird syrupy sweetness. Iím kind of confused who makes this beer now. Iíve seen it a lot in stores and figured Iíd give it a try but itís not really what I was expecting.

BucannonXC5 (937) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 2, 2014
Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Lagunitas mason jar From: Albertsonís in Alpine, Calif. Price: $1.67 ($9.99 for a mix 6-pack) Purchased: Sept. 30, 2014 Consumed: Oct. 1, 2014 Misc.: N/A Poured a caramel, orange, clear color with 3-to-4 fingers of khaki white head. Tons of good looking streams of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Good amount of layered foamy lacing on the sides of the glass all the way down. Great retention on the top all the way down as well. (Sight - 4.06) Smelled a pleasant whiff of hops right away. Got floral hops, Citra hops, caramel, toffee, pine, good deal of bitterness, Cascade hops and some even some roasty smokiness. Very nice on the nose. (Smell - 4.21) Tasted toffee, caramel, roasty malts, buttery notes, floral hops, Citra hops, orange rind and rye hops. Almost seems more like a strong ale than an IPA. (Taste - 3.79) Medium body. Oily texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Long, slightly bitter finish. (Feel - 3.81) This was a very nice IPA. Big fan here. Iíd have it again for sure. (Overall - 3.88) 3.91 88 B+

"a little better balance than the pale (more malt), but the hops are stronger too...and just a touch too bitter. overall, an aromatic, but just ok, effort. 7/11 a little better and more balanced than remembered. 11/11 perfumey super strong aroma"

Westmeister (1839) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Draft. Mellow Mushroom Conyers. Pours a mostly clear golden with decent white head. Bigger malt presence than I prefer, but with some nice citrus burst. Well made, but nothing separates it from the crowd. Medium bitterness.

Light malty on the aroma. Some honey citrus note. Looks fine. Little head. Golden color. Taste is pine. Dandellion. A little lemon. Palate is watery but decently smooth. But hops linger a bit long. Overall an ok beer.

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.
