Like IPA’s?? Then you will like this one. On tap @ The Press Room. Pours golden hue with a white, foamy, long lasting white head. Aroma is of citrusy hops and biscuit malt. Light-medium, tangy body. Citrusy hops dominate the flavor with a biscuit malt provide good balance. Finish is long lasting, dry and hoppy.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2011 Complex hop flavors here, big bitterness at the end, that ramps up afterwards. Not balanced with malts though, decent

It’s become a standard for California IPA’s. Aroma is hops, pine citrus. Appearance is gold clear with a nice white head. taste is hops. Where I feel like this falls flat is it lacks a nice smooth malt backdrop, it tastes a bit like hop tea. Palate is also a bit thin. Overall a good refreshing IPA but nowhere near the best.

Appearance is clear amber with a medium white head. Aroma is pine hops with a little sweetness. Taste is a hint of sweet malts, but mostly earth hops and medium bitterness. Overall very well balanced and probably the best IPA I have tried.

Pours golden with an orange haze. Nose is citrus with hints of honey, some pineapple.. Fresh mouthfeel, crisper palate than most IPA’s (?) but bitter overtone from beginning to finish.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2012 Great citrusy aroma with a pale golden appearance. Hoppy taste with citrus overtones. Crisp light mouth with a lingering bitter finish. Not bad, a good IPA.

Keg at Craft Beer Co., London. Bouquet of floral fruitiness on the nose. Powerful bitter sensations on the tongue, noticably bracing but soft and buttery underneath. And I hear they do even more intense IPAs? Sign me up.
