On tap at the brewery joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Clear amber with a small off-white head, some lacing. Aroma is fruity, malts and citrus. Flavors are fruity, caramel and citrus peel
On draft at the brewpub. This is definitely a more balanced IPA than what we’re used to on the West Coast. It pours pretty dark gold with a khaki colored head. The aroma is a bit lacking with hints of spicy, piney hops and toasty malt. The flavor is rich with pine and spicy hops and hints of tropical fruit. It has a strong caramel malt backbone that distracts from the hop character a bit, but adds to the balance. If the aroma was a little stronger, I would have rated this higher. Good effort though.

17 Apr 2012, growler from the brewery. pink/orange, clear, no bubbles. resiny hops with background bitter twinge. med body and moderately fizzy. piney hops with enough malt to give it some body but not interrupt the hops flavor. slight bite but no real bitterness or alcohol flavor. brokensail (16648) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 18, 2011
A: The beer pours amber in color with a finger of white head.
S: Doesn’t really smell much like an IPA. Starts off with caramel, soap, and metal. Yum. Minimal hops to the nose and definitely some booze. I do get some mild floral hops as I really stick my nose in the glass.
T: Like with the aroma, sweet malt and caramel are the primary flavors. A little bit of booze in there too, along with a mild fruit note and some grass. A bit of floral hops are the one saving grace.
M: The body is medium and so is the carbonation med.
O: Apparently Lodi is not a destination for IPAs. Ungstrup (38423) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2011
