Draft. An unclear dark golden beer. The aroma has ntoes of hops, grass, and grapefruit. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, grass, and grapefruit, leading to a bitter finish. The hops leaves a light burn in the throat.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bomber from Rothís Vista Market Salem OR.
Clear slighly burnt golden coloured ale, as a huge rocky off white head.
Aroma is mainlly of grapefruit like hopping,sweet and slightly spicy.
Taste is a bit of a let down, its mainlly sweet a sort of artificial sweetner type sweet, there are hops but they are buried for an instant under the sweetness,the hops do emerge near the end.
Watery palate..but the aftertaste is OK.
Overall dissapointing IPA, coulda been way better.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Santa Cruz Ale Works IPA is a clear, golden ale with a small, off white head. It has an aroma of pine resin. Itís light bodied and crisp with a slightly gritty finish. Itís a resiny flavor thatís well balanced. The aftertaste is long and resiny. Itís a simple and tasty beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The solid basis of an IPA. Great aroma, nice hazy appearance, fantastic lacing. Generic bitterness, not much late-kettle hop additions. With a little bit more on the hop front this could be a solid IPA, but as it stands, a bit thin with a solid base. Improve the recipe.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 3, 2010 The beer pours a hazy fold with a small frothy white head that leaves lacing. Aroma is vague hops, a bit fruity and grassy but not strong and a bit sweet. Flavor is that of a proper IPA. Hop flavor and bitterness, atop a decent caramel malt background. Real nice bitter finish. Canít see why itís rated poorly, I really have to disagree. Not a top IPA, but solidly decent.
