India pale Ale, or IPA, was developed to quench the thirsts of British settlers in the East and West Indies. The Bodega Head IPA recreates the stylistic ideas of the 1800’s. High alcohol and aggressive hop charecteristics are matched with a dry malt background and finish.

On tap at Aleworks. Pours clear orange, no head. Flavor has caramel notes with hints of pine and floral. Quite sweet for an ipa and unfortunately not enough bitterness to balance it out. It's easy to drink, but doesn't live up to IPA standard. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"got to try this both regular and cask versions. not quite big enough to stand up to the cask, but decent either way. pine and floral hops, ample bitterness and sweet malt. well balanced with a bitter aftertaste. not a standout, but not bad either."

Ferris (8042) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 22, 2014
Draft - Floral hops with a caramel sweetness. Clear gold with a nice rich head. Perfumy, grapefruit and a nice quick hit of bitterness. A very nice refreshing IPA.

brokensail (13616) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 9, 2014
On tap @ Third St Aleworks. Clear golden-orange pour with a white head. Orange peel hop notes, some grass, and a bit of pine. Sweet caramel and bread, too. Flavor is fairly sweet, but does have a decent amount of bitterness to balance it out. Lots of orange peel, grass, and caramel. Light piney hops on the back end.

Typical IPA...nothing over top but nothing lacking either. Grass pine slight cedar. Good drinking IPA...great to go to brew pubs like this and enjoy their offerings.
