Our IPA is created from a base of Pale and Crystal malts and is aggressively hopped throughout the brewing process with a final hop addition in the conditioning vessel. A beautiful flowery hop aroma will greet you as you dive into this hop lovers dream. A middle caramel malt presence balances high hop bitterness with hop flavor end to end... learn to love hops! (Editors Note: originally brewed by Humboldt Brewing Company under the name "Humboldt IPA Nectar" until their acquisition by Firestone Walker.)

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 3, 2014
Hazy dark orange to copper pour with a 2 finger, creamy, off white-yellow head that has good retention and leaves some lacing. Aroma is caramel, candy-like fruity notes, lots of floral hops, some citrus, caramel and a little dust oxidization. Flavor is full of candy fruitiness, lots of sweet Crystal malt, some biscuit, lots of candied citrus, artificial strawberry flavor and some bitter and fruity citrus hops to the finish. Light to medium body, syrupy, creamy entry, medium, blanketing and quite sharp carbonation and off dry, but slightly juicy finish with a pretty noticeable hoppy-acidic bite. Good stuff overall, a little too candy like and too loaded with Crystal malt, but enjoyable nevertheless.

Pours a hazed amber, delicate ivory head. Aroma of peach, fresh fruit, apricot, notes of pine/spruce. Medium bodied. I expected more of a punch than I got. Just some more peach, piney hops and a brief biscuit finish.

CObiased (403) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2016
12oz bottle - pours darker that expected, like a rich amber honey color with a thin off white head. A lot of caramel with bitter citrus and pine hops. Taste is reminiscent of an English IPA with more depth in malt character and American hop punch. Sweet malts

Faint aromas of bread, toffee and burnt sugar. Copper with thick head. Thick resinous taste with bitter end. Nectar like. Not bad, but not very drinkable.

Rating #1589 - 23.03.2015 - Bottle from San Diego trip.Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hoppy overtones, grapefruit, citrusy, toasted malt. Taste is more of the same, dry hops and roast malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Alright IPA.

hotstuff (4921) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Rated on 01-11-2016 (Bottle) The appearance is a large ivory head that is mostly lasting, transparent amber body, slow rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is citrus, pine hops, floral, earthy, and caramel malt. The flavor mimics the aroma along with moderate bitterness. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. A very drinkable IPA that has a very good hop flavor. It is not an overly hoppy or bitter tasting beer. It is worth trying and an IPA that I would definitely partake in again.

bnoel09 (586) - Elk Grove, California, USA - JAN 3, 2016
Poured into a snifter. Medium to dark amber with a cream colored head. Aroma is mildly sweet and grainy with some floral hops. Flavor is similar with some bready malt and grainy sweetness up front followed by floral hops. Medium bodied with crisp carbonation. Mild and a touch sweet but decent.
