No one could give me any information on this beer while I was at the brewpub. I know they have 2 other IPAs listed and this may actually be one of those. I know there has been a change in ownership and management recently, so this may be an entirely new beer. I am creating a new listing just in case.

Zymurgeist2 (1027) - Redwood City, California, USA - APR 7, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Moderate pine and slight citrus aroma. Moderate biscuit malt. Pours orange-amber with off-white head. Flavor is geared towards hop bitterness, with slight pine, resin and grapefruit. A little harsh on the backend.

Great aromatic hops, not overwhelmingly bitter. Dark copper color and plenty of malt. Good beer. Would recommend.

Tap at the brewpub. Pours very dark hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma seems citrus/resin. Med body. Nice malt backbone - which is fairly matched by citrus/floral/resin. Bitter finish. Good drink.

Draft at the brewpub. Strong floral? hop aroma. It was served way too cold. Darkish amber color with a fine beige head. Near medium body with very light carbonation. The flavor is a bit watery. Light malt and light floral hop. It has substance, but it has less impact than many IPAs. Based on the ratings, I wonder whether there is indeed more than one recipe.

Poured into a shaker glass on tap @ brewpub. Aroma is nice, appear ancee is good, nicee lacing down the glass. Flvour is good, very nice for what seems like a typical ipa. Bitterness is balanced, and medium full body is proper for This beer.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2009
An amber IPA with a thin creamy white head. A rather strong butterscotch aroma, wiht light c-hops. In mouth, a crisp malt with light British hops, very mild and boring. Medium bodied. On tap at brewpub, August 27 2009.

Nik925 (751) - California, USA - DEC 14, 2008
Great aroma on this one. Good hop taste, but the bitter is a little much. Very different from the San Diego style IPAs I have been having lately, much more upfront sweetness and crazy lingering bitter. Good, but old school, ?, maybe...Will call it good for what it is.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - AUG 17, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Amber with a lasting head. Not very aromatic, with some earthy hops and toasty malt. The flavor is a dry, toasty malt flavor with plenty of bitterness and not too much floral or fruity hop flavor. Alright, but not one of their better beers.
