COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Everything you’d expect from a great American IPA: Hop-forward, yet civilized. Bitter but balanced. Cascade hops ring loud and clear with citrus/pine notes and are backed up by a chorus of our other favorites - Apollo, Centennial, Chinook, Columbus, Crystal, and Simcoe.

To be honest my least favourite Saint Archer. Gooey, heavy toffee body really distracts from the hop showcase. Not very West Coast. Decent, but there is so much competition on the shelf that there is little point revisiting.

mcberko (5916) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 1, 2014
22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy golden blonde with a small white head. Nose brings out earthy funk, piney and floral hops, and dry biscuity malt. Flavour is rich and robust, with a load of pine and floral hops. Super dry and flavourful, with exceedingly high drinkability. Excellent stuff.

22 FL OZ ($5.99) Its an okay IPA, But at $6 I can get two 22fl.oz long hammer IPA for the same price. just a run of the mill IPA. but at least this is better than their pale ale. so far a mediocre brewery and over priced for their product. RateBeer.com need a rating for the deal of the drink!

wlajwl (3738) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Aroma yeast, light pine and grapefruit/citrus. The flavor is grapefruit, tropical fruit, definite hop resin, malts, slightly coarse in texture and a dry and very bitter finish.

SlovakSniper (3013) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2014
Une bière légèrement orangée. Une dentelle qui pousse derrière une tête enthousiaste et blanchâtre. Un nez de Cascade avec ses agrumes et son côté floral doux. Des biscuits et une touche de miel comme un tranquille repos malté. Sur les papilles, des oranges et un détachement du pamplemousse. Un profil céréalier qui s’ajuste à chaque gorgée. Je ne connais pas la date d’embouteillage de ce liquide. Rien n’est dit sur cette bouteille californienne. Ceci dit, il me semble que je suis devant une bouteille jeune. Les houblons sont bien aromatiques et assez amérisants. La bouche est bien structurée. Le corps, la texture et les bulles rencontrent sans doute les normes sévères de la buvabilité. En fin de parcours, l’amertume florale des houblons a de bonnes propriétés asséchantes. Peut-être s’accompagne-t-elle aussi d’une petite touche résineuse, à bien y penser. Une IPA parmi tant d’autres. Efficace mais convenue.

Weezel (161) - Florida, USA - APR 24, 2014
Tropical hop aromas meet a clear golden IPA. Mango, slight pine and peach dominate the aroma. The taste is citrusy hops with more Mango shining through balanced by a decent malt backbone. Pretty good.

Theydon_Bois (7895) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2014
Bottle in the hotel room, SD, from Surf Liqour, SM, 19/04/14. Almost clear golden with a good sized off white covering. Nose is bitter grapefruit, orange pith, pine resin, bitter hops, grassy. Taste comprises mango, bitter orange, grapefruit, juicy hops, toasty malt, light pine. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with punchy hop bitterness. Solid IPA !

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottle shared by jackl at the April 2014 Charlottesville tasting. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a thin creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of toasted malts, floral, citrus hops. The taste is caramel malt, bitter citrus hops. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness, decent balance.

jackl (4291) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottle @ The Charlottesville Tasting. Light amber pour with a small white head. Light mango smoothie. Nice and bright. A bit of lemon. Sweet caramel malts, cows tails. The taste is pretty clean. Mellow lemon poppyseed cake. Chalky mineral. Dirty grass. Much more subdued malt profile than the nose suggests. Light body, soft carbonation. Not bad. Fresh, bright.
