4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: Pours a regal yellow gold with a tight white cap of foam atop.
Aroma: Grapefruit, sativa, tangerine, fruit cocktail.
Taste: Beautiful mixture of dank citrus and grassy American hops. Very dry pilsnerish bready malt. Finishes with moderate length clean bitterness that lets up for repeat sips.
Mouthfeel: Bone dry, average carb, medium bodied.
Overall: This is exactly what I want from an IPA, and a perfect example of a San Diego IPA. With that said, if you like your IPAs a bit sweeter, it might get some taking used to. This might be in my top 3 IPAs as of this posting.

This is a really refreshing IPA, on a hot day after a long day of work this is my go to beer. It is very citrusy, and has a fresh hoppy flavor. One of my favorite drinks right now.

Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Hazy golden color with medium sized head. The aroma is pungent, with resiny hops and some fruity hops too. The mouthfeel is rather dry, lean, with underlying toffee malts, and above an explosion of fresh resiny hops; piney and citrusy.
Very easy to drink, the pleasure of an IPA.

Unique hop blend the way I like - aromatic, fruity, bitter and strong! The aroma is actually weird and reminds me a little too much in both a good way and bad way of a woman's nether region. I can really catch the citra hop hints but so many hops in this one.
Bottle in SoCal.

Pours hazy gold. Good foamy head. Aroma of tropical fruits, earth, pine resin and lemon. Taste of caramel malts but overwhelmed by trop fruit, hop spice, and floral. Finish is grapefruit with lasting floral and woodsy qualities. Nice medium mouthfeel.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a bright light orange with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, tropical fruits, dank weed, and some light sweet malts. Taste is citrus (grapefruit and orange), resiny pine, grass, tropical fruits (pineapple and mango), and light sweet malts. Has a medium body with a slighty creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, pretty bitter, medium-long, slighty refreshing, juicy finish. Overall, a tasty, fresh tasting, hop forward IPA, that is nice on warm day.

12oz bottle pours with a deep crystal clear gold body that supports a modest dirty white head of foam. The aroma offers up an initial note of grapefruit like citrus hops and then it gets into a pleasing array of dank onion and shallot like earthy hoppiness that swirl around the citrus notes. The taste is similar with a tasty rich mix of grapefruit and tangerine as well as bitter hoppy onion dankness and slivers of pine hops. These notes come together very well and lead to a semi dry finish that creates a fairly sessionable sort of drinkability. Solid IPA.

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.

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!
