Golden in color with an assertive hop bitterness. This beer won gold medals at The Great American Beer Festival in 1989 and 1990. A true American Classic.

Hmm this IPA is run of the mill. Nothing wrong with it but not overly exciting. It is like a Toyota Camry comapred to a Ferrari or like Jennifer Aniston compared to Scarlett Johansson. It does what an IPA is usppoed to do but not in a spectular fashion. Hoppy flavors are there but all that dominant. Maltiness is there as well but again not really in a spectular fashion. Solid but not exciting.

Bottle from City Beer Store. Classic orange-brown IPA color, nice and hazy, long lasting off white head. Citrus and pine hops in the nose, mostly pine hops with a good bit of bready malt, very bitter. Pretty thin. Not distinguished but I’d drink it again if someone bought it for me.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - OCT 12, 2007
22oz bottle from Hi-Time Cellar. Citrus piney hop aromas are strong, malt evident. Hop flavors come through well, malt struggles to balance the strong bitterness. Overall this is real close to being a good west coast IPA, but falls short on balance.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Bottle, brewed by Sudwerk for Rubicon. Pours with some chill haze that clears soon enough. Citrus and grass hop aroma with grainy malt and alcohol. Decent hop and malt flavor but some metallic, vegetable and metal notes detract. Prickly finishing bitterness.

fordest (2135) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Tasted during the San Diego Fesival of Beer. Nice hoppy aromas. Very citrus and fruity. Flavor fell off a bit, still very hoppy, just not quite as pleasant as the aroma was. Still good.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 2, 2007
22oz from HiTime. Big pour, halfway between amber and gold, with a decent head (average retention). Very, very bitter beer, but a bit one dimensional in the hop profile. Refreshing, potential quaffer if readily available, but not overly memorable.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 21, 2007
Pale orange-gold with a very thin, loose head. Low-level hops in the aroma along with honey, oranges, and some sweet malt. Very light flavor profile--thin and sweet with weak bitterness and vague hops flavors. It’s thin and watery mouthfeel doesn’t offer much either.

DYCSoccer17 (3513) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 15, 2007
Pint on tap at Lamp Post Pizza in Davis, CA. Orange, citrus, piney, metallic hop aroma present. Transparent orange body with a medium off-tan head and fair lacing. Starts a bit resiny, but becomes a little sweet. Husky, chewy, roasty malts follow. A nice juicy, grapefruity "C" hop finish. Very drinkable and quite solid. Well-crafted although not mind-blowing.

First sample Stone Anniversary Fest XI. On advice from my pal bikesandbeer a native Sacramentonian this is there best beer so thats what I had. Pours amber with a bright white ring head. Nose was light and hoppy. Tasty strong with a big hoppy bite. Nice.
