COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Built in 1881 to showcase the electrification of the west, San Jose’s Electric Light Tower stood for over 30 years as a shinning star above the Santa Clara Valley. Our Electric Tower IPA reimagines this icon as an intensely West Coast Style IPA. A firm malt base builds support for the abundance of hops, allowing hints of pine, citrus and tropical fruit to shine through and light up your palate!

PhillyCraft (3146) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2014
On draft at San Pedro square brewpub with Scott and Heady. Pours clearish golden color with smaller head. Medium carbonation. Tasting notes were orange, pine, light malt and some other citrus fruits. Good brew to sip on while watching some crunchy tuneage.

mcberko (6045) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 3, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy golden orange with a medium off-white head. Aroma of piney hops, a little buttery hops, and a slight fruitiness. Flavour is very sharp, full of soapy floral hops, a little dry pine, and dry biscuity malt. This is quite sharp and astringent, finishing on harsh soapy floral hops. Super dry and quite drinkable. Very solid IPA.

GIJOE (600) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Pours golden with a frothy white head. Aroma is all bright floral hops. Flavor a little on the bitter side; not unpleasantly so. Palate a little thin but definitely drinkable. I would not turn it down. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared at The Bruery. Pours clear gold with a white foam head. The nose has dry pine, orange rind. Medium sweet with dirty pine bitterness, more citrus rind, moderately sugary toasty pale malts. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Lightly resinous to finish with further pine notes, dried citrus rind. OK stuff overall.

Pourer from 22oz bottle from blackwells. Dark orange, almost amber color. Sticky white head. Fruity floral aroma. Taste is very bitter. Malty citrus pine and spicy notes. Not too bad but was expecting to like it more
