This is a handcrafted, traditional "West Coast" IPA with a perfect balance of malt blended with Cascade and Fuggles hops. We hope you will enjoy this full bodied, nicely hopped India Pale Ale.

12 oz bottle One the beers that come each month from AOPD. The ale poured a clear light amber with 1/2 inch off-white head and lacing. Floral hops and pale malts greet you. el malt with good c-hops, herbal, clove field, quite nice. The taste is a classic hopped up IPA with citrus and pine resin on the tongue. The ale has a medium body with average carbonation. Bitterness impacts the tongue a bit at the end, but contributes to a long dry conclusion.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed deep golden color with a one finger head of white foam. The head had a decent level of retention, slowly fading to leave a little bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of a citrus grapefruit smell, but has other nice hop smells of a pine and grassy nature as well. Along with these aromas comes some light smells of a sweeter tropical fruit as well as a hint of a caramel aroma. Taste – The taste begins with a mix of a bready taste mixed with a slightly drier cracker taste and a decent showing of a grapefruit hop taste right from the start. As the taste moves forward, the taste dries out even more with the little bit of tropical fruit and caramel that were present upfront, fading as the taste moves on. All the while, a grassy and herbal hop taste moves onto the tongue bringing more resinous hop flavors to the brew. Toward the very end, a nice earthy hop joins the flavor profile, leaving one with a rather nice blend of resinous hop and crisper, but deep malt flavors to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the somewhat crisper but still thick side, while the carbonation level is on the slightly lower side. For the west coast style the brews feel is rather nice as it both accentuates the rich dank and grapefruit hop blend, all while maintaining a decently easy drinking feel. Overall – A fairly nice west coast IPA overall. Nothing too out of the ordinary, but a good one to try none the less.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a thin white foamy head. Aroma of caramel malts and faint citrus. Kind of watered down. Citrus rinds and caramel. That’s all that is going on here. Nothing to write home about.

12oz bottle from my sister for my birthday. Pours a hazy burnt amber color with a finger of frothy white head. Tons of sediment floating around. Aroma is kinda boozy, lots of caramel, and some old rotted citrus fruit. Taste of caramel malt, grapefruit, lemon zest, lemon pulp, and toasted nut shells. Way better then what I was expecting from the aroma.
