COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beerocracy is our grand opening brew that is only going to be brewed for the next couple of months. I actually consider it a strong Pale Ale, but not an IPA. Although it has a wonderful hop aroma it is not dry hopped. I employee that great hop called Simcoe that really gives a giant aroma that is clean.

Uncharacteristically malty for a RR brew. Blood oranges in the nose with big caramel malt notes, Bready and floral makes for a very unique take on the classic pale ale. Hops are very clean and well balanced with a distinct Simcoe character. Well conditioned well balanced and very dry brew.

This is a very nice APA. I had it on draft at Hollingshead Deli. Nice copper color with a citrus/pine nose. It starts out hoppy but finishes clean and refreshing. The hop profile of this APA seems different than others Iíve had.

Big Juniper and dark resiny pine in the nose. Medium dark amber body wit ha fine white head. Malty carmel blends well with piney citrus hoppyness with touches of melon, fresh hop and fresh biscuts. Finnishes with a lot of hop charactor.

On tap @ Hollingshead Deli. Nice rich copper colored brew with a tempting citrusy nose. Very interesting drinking this one as you get a very hoppy citrus bitterness at the front. Malty, biscuity notes in the middle finished with an herbal bite at the end. Very enjoyable brew!

Tap@Toronado, San Fransisco. When i had this beer i wasnít sure i liked the style, but iím seriously getting used to it, this was pretty tasty. Classic lychee, pine, grapefruit, really balanced and soft. Great beer from a pretty handy bunch of brewers.

On Tap at Fatherís Office in Santa Monica. A delicious pale ale that has anice blend of sweet favor and bitter aftertaste. The head was small, but the beer did have some holds a slightly bitter aftertaste

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2004 On tap at O’Briens, San Diego. Absolutely delicious and drinkable beer. Marmalade colour, little head, but big lacing. Fresh, grassy aroma. Absolutely delicious and drinkable beer. Hop encrusted, but fruity and juicy beer, which is satisfying and refreshing. Light in the mouth, with a full, slightly soured finish which tingles slightly. Great stuff indeed.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2005 orange-raped amber, thick tightly woven head...fresh, hoppy aroma with notes of mandarine orange...Hoppy, orange-pine flavors..almost harshly bitter with a mandarine orange aftertaste and subtle hints of doughy malts...Decent hoppy pale ale, similiar to Stone Pale Ale, but more bitter.

Pours a nice amber color with a beautiful off-white head that laces the glass very well. Aroma is very mild, not quite what I expected from an American "Strong" Ale, but still pleasant. Nice malt/hop balance exists. Flavor is almost exactly like Sierra Nevadaís Harvest Ale. Nice hop bitterness meshed well with a sweet malty balance. Good body that holds its own in the mouth. A good beer.
