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.

November 10th, 2013 - St. Archer’s Dry Hopped IPA smells slightly sweet, like honeyed peanuts, but more of a generous honey drizzle than a fresh harvest of peanuts. The palate is both thicker and sweeter than the aroma portended, and with a solid hop profile, or at least enough of one to stand up to the residual sugars. This is more traditionally and sweet like an IPA without the dry hopping, and not quite the bitter and herbaceous flavor I expected. But a drinkable IPA is always welcome.

Ok grassy iPA. Hops of mowed lawn, clear and bitter taste. Finishes pretty clean with slight metallic edge.

Maker: Saint Archer Brewing Company, San Diego, California, USA *** Beer: Saint Archer IPA (bottled, unfiltered, 330ml) *** Style: India Pale Ale (IPA) *** ALC.VOL.: 7.0% *** "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. " [brewery notes] *** Colour: Bright yellow, slightly hazy. Big, frothy white head. *** Nose: Sweet lemon, pinewood, herbs, grass. *** Texture: Medium body, hardly watery. Moderate carbonation. *** Taste: Bitter pine and herbs dominate the start. Mixed citrus fruit. But mostly pine. The middle increasingly so, with resin added to the mix. Finish is only marginally less bitter; hoppy, resinous still. And so is the after taste, with a more generous citrus note there, too. *** Impressions: Very much a hardcore American Pale Ale, with bitterness conquering everything. I like that, but lovers of fruity or maltier APA’s/IPA’s should probably abstain. This is a hoppy, pinewood-dominated beer.

Santa Clara, Ca - Santa Clara Liquors - 22 oz bomber. Sparkling, light golden pour, soft snow-white head, decent film of lacing. Resiny aroma with a hint of cat urine, some spruce accents. Solid IPA flavor with some resiny citrus bittersweet notes, some light caramel sweetness, a bit of saffron - like spiciness. Thick, sticky mouthfeel. Pretty solid.

Lean and blah, no real hop aroma for iPa clear orange. Very fizzy. Taste astringent and bitter but not in fresh hop way. Not good in my opinion.
