COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our India Pale Ale is brewed as a combination of English and California IPA styles. The beer goes through a secondary conditioning step in which a generous addition of fresh Cascade hops are added along with French Vanilla Oak chips. The oak chips provide the beer with a smooth finish bursting with Cascade aroma.

Had this on draft as well. Slight hop aroma, not real pronounced but somewhat subdued. Still, enough to keep me interested. Hop taste on the first sip with a balancing malt profile that makes this drinkable in mass amounts. Its that good.

Draft. Golden amber beer. Slight citrus aroma - not as strong as many IPAs. Rich malt and citrus hop. Relatively balanced.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 3, 2005
hoppy resinous oily piny mouthful of hops with an extremely well balanced malt backbone that begs to be consumed in large quatities.

jazz88 (2551) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 21, 2004
Tap @ Bistro 7th IPA Festival. A dark golden amber color with a creamy tan head. A malty body with all glacier hops. An interesting twist in the flavor, slightly sweet, smooth, and not as assertive as others at the festival.

Orange gold color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is citrusy and floral, a touch smoky. A medium bodied IPA. Malts are fruity (apricots and oranges) and sweet. Hops are grapefruity and floral. Nicely balanced. Smooth taste. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
