SILVER METAL 2000 Great American Beer Festival! Big, bold hop flavors define this wonderful India Pale Ale. This is a stronger, hoppier version of a regular pale ale. Loads of Columbus, Cascade, Willamette and Centennial hops are used in this beer that would please any hop-head!

Draught at Oggi’s in Vista, California. Clear golden beer with a really nice lasting offwhite head. Hoppy citrus aroma, peach, citrus, grapes, caramel notes. Hoppy citrus flavor, grassy, herbal, bread notes. Not my kind of IPA.

Light lean citrus pine in aroma and flavor. Balanced on the light end, I’d suggest this more of a pale ale. So good pale ale ok IPA

This IPA tries hard to stand out from the crowd. Unfortunately it winds up being just another refreshing alternative that blends into the background. Of course based on all the other pours I should have expected something like this.

Aroma / Appearance - A mahogany base gives this beer a mellow presence. Malt driven and earthy, it is sticky with caramel aspects that briefly promise something more.

Flavor / Palate - Malt, walnut, and earthy hops give this more body than many of the other beers on draft. The finish of cherry pie watered down 50/50 with liquid gives it a reasonable chewiness. Put together into a package it is a forgettable draft.

Buona ipa ben luppolata, con note agrumate e fruttate. Buon amaro nel finale. Niente di superlativo, ma una ipa molto in stile che si fa bere volentieri!

dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 17, 2013
Pours transparent golden orange with a thin white head. The nose is big grapefruit, some caramel, honey, passion fruit and pine tree. The taste is high sweet and low bitter until the finish where the bitter bumps up a bit but not enough. The texture is soft at first but leaves some crisp carbo fizz after. Body is heavy and the finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
