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.

jehoesefat (272) - Poway, California, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Skunky aroma, but very appealing. Pours extremely clear light orange with a white head. Good bitter flavors, not too strong. Refreshing, but the aroma is off putting.

Bottle. Hazy bright yellow color, white edge head. Nice tropical fruit aroma. Taste is bitter fruit.

joet (2172) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Big grapefruit aroma, beautiful golden color and big rocky white head. Some light dank and pine, bushy vines, light mineral. Biscuity, honeydew. Mostly sweet finish. Lots of potential here but too bitter and too sweet. This is negatively affecting the body, finish and hop expression. Less bittering, keep dry hops, soften feel, less residual sugar.

San Diego Trip Summer 2014 - Nice easy drinking IPA. Awesome hops flavors and finish.

Brenhophead (559) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 29, 2014
Small can into a spig IPA glass. Pours a clear light golden with a nice big white head. Very nice tropical fruit/perfume like aroma. Very resinous and bitter in the flavour with some of the tropical fruit as well as piney notes.

Barreras (980) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Pours a yellow-orange color with a hops aroma. Taste is simple, mildly hoppy, with a slight bitter aftertaste. A really simple IPA that was less than impressive. Kind of watery and not complex, tastes mass produced.

reebtogi (4183) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 6, 2014
650ml bomber pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that retains well and leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is bold with pine, grapefruit, tropical fruits, and hints of caramel. Taste is a caramel malt and tropical fruit sweetness with a bold pine and grapefruit hop bitterness. Well balanced and tasty. A very well crafted IPA that I thoroughly enjoyed.

chinchill (1873) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2014
On tap at True North in the North Park area of San Diego. Pour is light amber-gold with fine-grained visible carbonation and a very durable, semi-creamy off-white head. Exceptional sticky lacing. Smell: strong and pungent (hops). Taste: Not as intense as the aroma suggests yet this could still pass as a DIPA. Medium-high bitterness. Bitterness is moderated by some malts. . Feel: medium body; medium-high but soft carbonation. O: Very good IPA IF you like this hop load ... but not my cup of tea.

bytemesis (3152) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Can. Pours clear golden orange with a large creamy off-white head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is passionfruit, mango, dank dank dank, pine, cat piss. Flavor is light sweet, light plus bitter, dank and tropical. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. A bit harsh on the finish. Very nice beer - not sure why the ratings are not better on this one!

jdjuice (324) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - JUN 17, 2014
Pours hazy amber gold. Smells of piney and citrus hops. On the tongue, strong pine notes give way to citrus pithy notes that linger cleanly. Pretty good weight for a regular IPA, not too heavy, not too watery, good carbonation. High hoppiness but pretty easy to drink. Quite a solid all-round IPA.
