COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
From the cliffs of Seabright beach, wind your way up the San Lorenzo River to where the sun filters down through the redwood branches of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Call up your sense of adventure and appreciation for the lusty flavors of organic hops and try our India Pale Ale.

Tap. Pours hazy amber good, small of white head, good lacing. Aroma is quite light, a bit of floral and citrus. Flavor is amazingly subdued, just not much going on here. Light sweet, light bitter, light body, low carbonation. Meh.

brokensail (10935) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 2, 2013
On tap @ Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing. Hazed golden pour with a white head. Really grassy hop profile with a heavy dose of pine. A light bread aroma and some orange peel. Flavor is quite bitter. A lot of grass and pine. Quite resinous. Some bread, lemon, orange peel, and a hint of bread.

mrhoppy (1285) - Santa Clara, California, USA - OCT 26, 2013
This a nice refreshing beer. Nice hazy orange color. Creamy mouthfeel and high organic bitterness. Grain malt and a hint of sweetness. The bitterness really satisfies the hophead in me.

Pretty undeveloped nose. Stale malt. Pours a cloudy orange. And flat. Not very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

r464 (1928) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Hoppy aroma. Hoppy up front with a bitter, not floral, taste. Earthy flavor with just a hint of malt, but the finish is thin and trails off quickly. Could use more punch in the end.

Not a bad IPA. Pours a grey red color, with very little head. Not much smell, a little fruity. Taste starts nutty, with a light hoppy finish. Not too much aftertaste. Ha on tap at the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

In Santa Cruz we call this IPA, gutterwater. But it’ll get you drunk. I live a block from the brewery and they have a pacman machine in the taproom so I go there quite a bit. Im pretty sure they add more hops to their secondary fermentation than their primary.

On tap at Davenport Bar & Grill. Tastes nice hoppy and bright after a 20 mile bike ride. Doesn't get the best scores from others but I'd definitely put it in the 3+ range for drinkability on a sunny day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
