Bottled. Nice looking clear, dark copper color with a wispy white head. Malty and very floral hop aroma. A bit thin on malt in the flavor. Hoppiness is good but it’s a bit one dimensional in that it’s all hops with no malt.

marcus (6419) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 29, 2005
There was a hoppy aroma and a corresponding hoppy and buttery flavor. Overall, not very well balanced, but quite drinkable.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2007 West coast ipa, citrus, grapefruit & passion fruit with a touch of cat pee (in a good way if that is possible) from either chinook or simcoe hops. Nice big aroma with firm bitterness. Very little malt presence but the nice aromatic hop notes make up for it.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 15, 2004
Exceptionally glowing red-orange appearance, piles of long-legged head. Mango, papaya and assorted citrus fruits in the aroma, also some red fruits (cherry, raspberry). Overall a very tart yet full aroma. Flavor continues with some nice tartness cheerful but bready, winey base malts. Finishes with a nice bitterness and fairly dry.

On tap at the brew pub. Hops were not as bitter as in some IPA's. Nice citrus flavor that didn't come on too strong.

Looks very much like a classic IPA, slightly hazy, orange, slight white head. Aroma is of old cut grass or more than likely cascade. Flavor is similiar, no bitterness to speak of, well made grassy flavor. Body is a little watery. Balanced finish. Thanks Jazz88 for this one!

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - NOV 1, 2003
Great floral/hoppy, lightly citrus aroma. Bright orange gold, white head, generous lacing. Taste was strongly hopped, with a thinner malt sweetness in the background - could've used more body. My bottle just has an India Pale Ale label, but matches this description. Thanks Flipbrewer!

Bottle. It looks like they are finally shipping this beer to the Bay Area. Golden color with a foamy off-white head with rising bubbles. A strong grassy hop aroma. Sweet malts and strong hops flavors. I found this IPA quite interesting and enjoyable.

Bottle says Sacramento Brewing IPA.. Orange gold color. Large head. Aroma is citrusy hops. A medium bodied IPA. Malts are slightly sweet. Hops are very pronounced, grapefruity and somewhat bitter. Nice juicy hop flavor. Well balanced. A nice drinkable IPA. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is bitter.
