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.

Bartzilla (551) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Very fresh tasting. Tons of hops with a smooth finish. Every bit of a San Diego IPA as I could have expected.

hawthorne00 (2553) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 27, 2014
Can. Gold with a frothy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, lime, some earthy and tropical notes. Light bodied. Sweet clean pale malt, lots of fruity hops, a little pine, medium high bitterness. The tropical fruit notes are nice and it’s clean and pretty tasty but the malt side of things is just so anonymous.

bphicks123 (9) - - DEC 23, 2014 does not count
Solid IPA. very piney/earthy all the way through but not too bitter to be undrinkable. Missing the citrus/fruity notes that really make an IPA for me.

jazz88 (2564) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Bottle. A golden color with a white head. A robust hop aroma with layers of grass, hops, citrus and pine. A full rich palate for a single IPA. A strong bitter bite with lingering hop goodness.
