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.

RedSox2004 (1272) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Clear yellow orange with a one-finger white head and nice sticky lace. Big grapefruit aroma accompanied by a hint of bready malt. Overpowering grapefruit on the palate with a barely detectable bready malts in the background. Medium body and carbonation, sticky mouthfeel, and big citrus in the finish.

ADfan (539) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Poured from the bottle it has a golden yellow color with a medium head. The aroma has lemon zest and hops. Taste has hoppiness up front with pine, straw and citrus. Tastes like a true California IPA.

greenhorn1 (813) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear light gold. Grapefruit nose. Pine, citrus, and some floral undertones. Definitely a hop forward beer, classic west coast style ipa. Long bitter finish, very impressed with this ipa.

hapjydeuce (941) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Bottled. Light gold color, lively carbonation with a 1cm frothy white head. Aroma of lemon pepper, grapefruit, hay and danky weed. Similar flavor, leaning slightly more malty than hoppy. Dry finish, crisp, clean and refreshing. Decent balance and easy to drink. Not quite up there with the rest of the SD IPA veterans, but they’re off to a damn good start.

jgb9348 (4749) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Hazy golden coloured body with a nice three centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of bright citrus and piney hops with a good floral and grapefruity note at the end - mouth watering! Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and floral hoppiness up front with a good malt backbone to balance and a smooth but pungent grapefruity hop finish. Aftertertaste has a deep hop bitterness with a great malt backbone and a relatively light and smooth finish for a San Diego based IPA, but still shows nicely. Overall, a good IPA that I wish I could get regularly, but not as hoppy nor as intense as AleSmith or Stone, but a solid choice for a SD-based IPA! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Olive Tree Market Place in San Diego, California on 07-June-2013 for US$4.49 sampled at home in Washington in celebration of finishing the USMC Marathon on 27-October-2013.

alexanderj (3318) - Branson, Missouri, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Bottle; clear dull dark gold with a white head. A lot of carbonation streams. Arome of NW hops; fruity, earthy, and a touch of pine. Very resiny flavor; hops were a strange mix and probably didn’t reach its full potential. Flavor needed some tweaking but it was good enough.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - AUG 11, 2013
22oz bottle. Rating #18. Dark gold, light copper pour. Very clear with a white head. Pine aroma, with a bit of citrus. Very bitter, light pine and a huge bitter aftertaste. (2867)
