brokensail (10606) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 3, 2011
A: The pour is a slightly hazy golden amber color with a white head and some nice lacing. S: A really good citrus hop aroma to the nose to start things off. Plenty of tropical fruit notes, particularly pineapples, too. Pretty straightforward, but really nice. T: The hop flavor is really big and juicy with a fair amount of citrus/grapefruit and lots of pineapple. There’s a bit of a caramel flavor as well as some mild breadiness that weren’t really noticeable on the nose. M: The body is medium with a moderate carbonation. D: A surprisingly solid IPA. I really quite liked this beer and would definitely not have a problem ordering it if I find myself at Steelhead again.

Sample at the Burlingame brewpub. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Medium to full body with flavors of citrusy hops, toasted malt and a bit of pine. The finish is moderately bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

Strykzone (4782) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2008
Somewhat cloudy light brown with a small yellowish head. A spidery ring. Aroma features hops galore with grapefruit and some sugar. Flavor features grapefruit and pine along with some funk. The hops are balanced but not by caramel. It is more sugar which serves to offer little flavor thus enhancing the hop profile. A bitter aftertaste. A good beer but very one dimensional.
