COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Say hello to Betty IPA! Shes an American IPA boasting a blend of Mosaic, Citra, Simcoe and Centennial hops, and starting in March shell be the first new beer to join our year-round lineup in over 3 years! We spent 8 months perfecting this hop blend, and we love the huge range of juicy aromas and flavors we were able to hit: tropical fruit, citrus zest, berries, stone fruit and pine are all packed in, soaring over a base of pleasant bitterness and drinkable 6.5% ABV.

With Betty we had one goal: brew the modern, American IPA that wed want to drink ourselves, every day. Each time you drank a batch of Experimental IPA in our Tasting Room you helped us build this beer, and we cant wait for you to meet Betty.

Can. I bought a six pack and drank the first two closer to room temp and thought it was decent but malt heavy. Tropical fruits but also a pound of sweetness. This one was chilled on ice. Awesome. Tones down the malt. Really brings out the tropical fruit. Excellent.

Grocery store 22oz in Vacaville. I really enjoyed this IPA. Fruity and citrus flavored with a clean solid finish.

Bottle from World Market. Good hops up front with a little breadiness. A little bit of sweetness to it. Fairly well balanced and pretty clean drinking.

Pour is a hazy orange with a average white head. Aroma is a real nice tangerine and mango hoppyness wth cornucopia of other citrus fruit. Flavor is another nice blast of citrus fruit. Some grapefruit and stone fruit both make appearances. This is also a bit sweeter than I thought it would be but that doesnt really distract from the hops. I did not know what to expect from this beer, I thought it would be just another run of the mill IPA but it turned out to be really solid.

Bottle in Las Vegas. Clear deep golden pour, thin white head. Aroma of fruity hops, citrus, pine, resin and slightly tropical. Flavor is quite bitter, fruity and with a decent body. Nice balance.

A classic American IPA. Nice fruity aroma of grapefruit, amber orange and slightly cloudy. Easy drinking and no hard or bitter bites. Good beer.

Derek881 (1265) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 24, 2016
Enjoyed several of these beers while in San Francisco. The beer had a rich amber-copper color with a good-sized foamy white head with good retention, cling, and lacing. Its aroma featured strong citrus and fruity notes, with a presence of berries, along with some grainy and earthy hops. The taste was modestly bitter with citrus and grainy notes, but also had a surprisingly, lightly sweet fruity berry element for a nice finish. The beer had a relatively wet, light, and smooth body, with average carbonation and a good, easy mouthfeel. All-in-all a very enjoyable and easy to drink IPA with subtle, distinct aspects.
