COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Heres a nugget that James Marshall missed! Pale and crystal malts provide the backbone and golden hue, while Magnum, Simcoe and Chinook hops do the dancing on your tongue. Late hop additions to the kettle and aging on the "dry hop" give our India Pale Ale hop aroma and flavor worth digging for!

Sample at GABF 10/08/2016, thanks to my sis for assistance with note-taking. The beer is a clear dark golden color with a medium thick off-white head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lace. Citrus, hops and malt aroma. Medium body with flavors of piney hops, citrus and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hop aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

50cl bottle pours with a crystal clear pure gold body that supports a dirty white head of foam. The aroma offers up clementine, tangerines, some mango, a slice of pineapple and then a bit of spicy sort of earthy hops toward the end of the draw. The taste delivers a nice bite of citrus hop bitterness backed up by a modest degree of mango, tangerine and tangelo juiciness. To midway the citrus hop bitterness ramps up and is then joined by spicy onion dank hop bitterness and some earthy hops. This stays tropical and citrus from front to back with plenty of tasty hop bitterness rimmed thinly by juicier fruity hop notes. Pretty nice IPA.

Bomber from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Clear honey gold with a big almost white head. A citrus aroma with pine (and I can never smell or taste pine!). Citrus beginning and that includes grapefruit. Cat pee. Cinnamon. Fairly big bitterness and it is making the top of my throat become numb. Some tropical fruit comes in mid glass. Simcoe is not a favored hop for me and this one definitely features it.

hayduke (5171) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Poured a very clear gold with a big white head and moderate lacing . Nose is tropical fruit, citrus, pine, and peach. Medium plus body. Smooth in the mouth. Flavor is very rich with the fruit dominating, some grapefruit, pine, and some cinnamon spice. The finish is pine bitterness and the flavor hangs in there. Really nice beer, very drinkable.

On tap @ Auburn Alehouse. Clear golden pour with white foam. Really nice, juicy orange and grapefruit. Pine, hints of peach, and a slight tropical note. Flavor is a touch sweet and has a lot of orange and peach. Bitter pine, grass, and citrus pith on the finish. Pretty good IPA.

Barnacle_Ed (51) - Milpitas, California, USA - JAN 17, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2015 A very nice West Coast IPA with a huge - almost gratuitous - hoppy taste to it. Very piney and resiny, with just a hint of sweet caramel in the aftertaste. A good pick for any hops fanatics.
