COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American style IPA. Large amounts of Chinook, Centennial and Cascade hops make this another hop lover’s delight.

brokensail (9921) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Orange pour with a white head. Nose is pretty bland, almost watery. Sweet bread and grain. Some lemon and orange peel citrus notes. Some grass and light pine. Pretty bland flavor as well. There’s a touch of citrus peel, mostly lemon, with some bread sweetness, mild bitterness, and a fair amount of grass.

GT2 (7875) - Carlsbad, California, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Tap now at the rebranded Cucamonga Brewing Co as Six Shooter IPA listed at 7.3%. Pours a hazy deeper orange. Spotty lacing. Nose is pumpkin bread. Taste is nutty, salty, dense. Sort of East Coast IPA with no finesse, lots of boil hops, specialty malts. Pretty solid.

badlizard (5540) - Berkeley, California, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Hazy dark yellow with no head. Citrus and fruit aroma tending toward grapefruit. Sweet grapefruit taste followed by bready notes and an earthy lightly bitter finish. Meh.

l1br4r14n (451) - Rancho Cucamonga, California, USA - AUG 9, 2011
Sample at brewry. Big hop aroma - grapefruit, lemon, citrus. More of the same in the flavor with a healthy dose of bitterness. Decent.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 23, 2011
Sample. Rating #19. Hazy brownish/orange with a thin white head. Light hop aroma and a bit of malt. Flavor is a little astringent, kind of a bad bitterness, an ok ipa. (1668)

joeneugs (2932) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 14, 2011
On tap at the brewery. It pours golden orange with an off white head. The aroma is all hops with grapefruit, pineapple, and mango. Hints of pine. The flavor is piney with some grapefruit and orange. Very big dry, earthy, piney finish. Probably the best I had from them

ocdrinker909 (33) - USA - APR 6, 2010
12 oz glass on tap, Appearance: Pours a clear, new penny copper-colored body with a small white head. Smell: Sweetish toffee malts with a hefty dose of therapeutic citrus oils (maybe a hint of pine, too). Taste: No more of those sweetish malts as we jump right into the resinous, citrusy hops with a moderate bitterness. Back of the throat acidity. Long, lingering aftertaste. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Conspicuously oily. Drinkability: Nice enough for an indiscreet, unbalanced IPA.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
illidurit (2051) - Petaluma, USA - DEC 20, 2009
Sampled on tap at the brewery. Orangey gold with a wet off-white head. Aroma features the same lemongrassy citric note as the pale ale, albeit a little stronger. Flavor is crystal malt iced tea, lemon meringue, and grapefruity hops. Not very robust. Highly carbonated, weak bitterness. This is barely a pale ale, much less an IPA, much much less a good IPA.

alexanderj (3266) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - AUG 31, 2009
On tap at Omaha Jacks. Color was a dark amber. Aroma of fruit and citrus, with perhaps some floral notes. Flavor was the same; nice and balanced.

alagnak (467) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - JUL 8, 2009
Pours almost no head, aroma is subtle hops and malt. Honestly, it smelled exactly like their APA and I had to ask the waitress if she was sure she’d brought the IPA. Flavor is basically APA to start, but a nice finish of grapefruit hops and a little rose hip tea kind of sweetness. Nice IPA. ABV difference is not noticeable at all compared to their ’regular’ Pale. Will order again.
