Sampler @ River City -
Fantastic example of an IPA with boatloads of hoppy goodness from the aroma to the palate. Punchy citrus hops in flavor was really supported well by the great attenuation of the beer and the back seat that malts played. They really let the hops be the star of this beer, and I was quite thankful for that. This and the hefe were my two favorite beers of the afternoon. Loved it.

meidum body, deep copper colour, well integrated hops and a nice big hoppy head. The aroma in the head was strong and floral, by the hoppy aroma, i was suprised that it went down so smooth.

From a small brewpub in down-town Sacramento. This IPA is nothing spectacular, but it sure hit the spot on a hot August afternoon. Slightly off-balanced citrus flavors, but a nice bitterness to the finish.
