COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed to survive the voyage from England to India, this medium gold colored ale has a very assertive bitterness to create a decidedly hoppy pale ale

Draft. A golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has strong notes fo hops is it Nelson Sauvin? combined with notes of grapefruit and grass. The flavor is sweet with notes of hops, grass, grapefruit, and lovely spices - again I’m reminded of Nelson Sauvin, leading to a dry, spicy, grassy, and bitter finish.

On tap at brewery. Pours clear copper wit white head. Aromas of citrus, dank hops, caramel malts, and some pine. Flavors of bitter hops, grapefruit, and caramel malts. Finishes bitter and a little dry. Pretty solid house ipa.

Tap a the brewpub. Rating #16. Very dark dense amber pour with a decent off-white head. Aroma was nice citrus and a little pine, juicy as well. Flavor was also piney with a touch more citrus, very nice IPA. (1294)

was expecting a bit bolder hop profile but this is mellow bitterness wise. similar to the red velvet from Eagle Rock. pretty smooth.

BMan1113VR (7916) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 9, 2010
On tap. Brewer said this was nearly two months old, but still tasted pretty fresh to me. Pours with a clear orange body and a long lasting white head with great lace. Aroma of strong orange citrus and light hops. (C-hops and some simcoe). Taste is really nice, herbal, citrus and dank. Fresh smelling. Light caramel. Very nicely attenuated. Creamy carbonation, good bitterness, dry and well made!

brokensail (15754) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 23, 2010
A: The pour is gold in color with a minimal white head. Perhaps a ring around the top. S: A decent but not amazing nose on this beer. Grapefruit and a slight pine are the sum of the hop aromas with some caramel malt filling in the rest of the sniff. T: The flavor is an improvement over the nose. Good grapefruit flavor with a decent array of floral hops as well. There is some definite caramel malt in the middle with a decently bitter finish. M: Medium in body and maybe a bit light on the carbonation. D: Perhaps if we weren’t so spoiled in terms of IPAs, I would think this one was better. That said, we are spoiled here in Southern California and this is just a middle of the road (maybe a bit better) example.

Clear amber color/ beige head. Big pine, grapefruit hop aromas. Rich, smooth mouthfeel. Nice pine and grapefruit hoppy flavors on a solid spicy sweet malt base. good.
