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.

alexanderj (3334) - 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.

Tap at Stone Escondido. Clear orange. Decent lace. Red fruit and melon nose. Clean body, not as abusive as the other IPAs on tap today. Butterscotch adds some density and needed sweetness. Still, quite heavy on the bitterness. Solid.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Flowery hops, light pale and grainy malty base, light fruity hops, and a medium grassy hoppy finish.

Rojum55 (12) - California, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Aroma: citrus, floral. Taste: medium bitterness, peach, pine, very carbonated. Overall: I liked this one this is the kind of beer you can take to a party and enjoy the flavor. I think this a good IPA and I hope expect great things from Saint Archer.

BMan1113VR (7871) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Bottle (Bomber, $4.99). Pours with a clear golden hued body and a larger, fluffy white head that leaves good lace and is well retentive. Aromas are of floral hops, a bit muted. Lightly sweet, honeysuckle, biscuity malt. Moderate citrus, fruity esters and grapefruit pith. Flavors are hoppy, dry, fruity, medium bitter. Lightly chlorine like. A hint of pine. Low bitterness vs high hop flavor (a good thing). Fuller carbonation, dry. Medium bodied. A light resiny cohumulone bite in the finish.

BucannonXC5 (933) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Type: 22-oz. bomber Glass: Manzanita pint glass From: Pacific Liquor at Renaissance at North Park (San Diego), Calif. Price: $4.99 Purchased: June 28, 2013 Consumed: July 6, 2013 Misc.: N/A Poured a honey golden clear color with 1-2 fingers of grayish white head. Sporadic spiderweb lacing on the sides. Average-to-below average retention. Smelled a deep whiff of malty citrus hops. Could smell the bitterness. Caramel, toffee, tropical hops, lemon, iced tea, Columbus hops and orange. Tasted a bit better than the smell. Reminded me slightly of a Manzanita IPA or an English IPA. Bitter and dry at the end, but good flavor. Citrus hops, mainly lemon, iced tea, resin hops and faint sugary grapefruit. Light body. Creamy texture. Soft carbonation. Bitter, dry finish. Had me wanting to come back for more. This beer grew on me as it went down. I’d give it another try.
