Served on tap at Big Bear Mountain Brewery. The appearance is a slightly hazy gold hue with a micro white head, a little darker then the Pale Ale. The aromas are also stale. The flavors are the same. Oxidized, mild stale malts. When I first tasted my buddies I though they acidently gave him the Pale Ale but the IPA is even less hoppy then that. Sad. The mouth is pretty still. This beer too has seen it’s better days. brokensail (16486) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 12, 2010
A: The pour is a golden amber color with a small white head and some spots of lacing.
S: A pretty decent hop aroma to this beer, which is mostly oranges (seems like a popular theme at this brewery). There are some hints of pine, but otherwise it’s sweet and bready malt.
T: The flavor is quite bitter, much moreso than I would have expected from the nose. Most of the hop flavor is in the form of bitter orange and grapefruit peels.
M: The body is on the light side of medium with a low carbonation.
D: This is one of the better beers from these guys, but that’s not really saying too much. bb (9423) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 14, 2009
Draft. Name of beer was Little Beaver IPA. Amber beer with an off-white head. Low grapefruit aroma. Grapefruit and light malt flavor. Medium bodied. Low bitterness. Light grapefruit and light malt lingers. Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 24, 2008
Pours with an amber body topped by a thin to medium thick head with some lacing left on the glass. Slightly sweet and malty yet well balanced with bitterness and a subtle citursy hop note. Very refreshing. Medium bodied, smooth and a touch dry.

Clear orange amber with foamy white head. Faint malty aroma. Creamy mouth feel. Tart citrus taste but lacking the hoppy bitterness to back it up. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 1, 2007
A malt dominated nose with some earthy and grassy hops. A little pine, but faint amounts. Pours a murky darkish amber. Flavor is caramel and toffee malt dominted followed by some earth and pine hops. This is definitley a more malt based IPA. It is pretty heavy in body and the alcohol is detectable to a certain extent. Not bad, but I like my IPA’s to be more on the West Coast style.
