Keep in mind that I don’t favor IPAs, but I really liked this on. Nice amber color with very little bitterness in the end. Almost kinda sweet (unusual for an IPA). Has a nice citrus smell that made me want to have more. beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - FEB 7, 2005
On tap this brew pours a medium amber with a white head that lasts for a while. This could have been a really nice IPA, but there was a lot of diacetyl that made it overly sweet and buttery. Citrus hops in the nose and in the finish. The bitterness balanced out a lot of the sweetness, but way too much butterscotch taste from the diacetyl ended up getting to me by the end of the pint. I’ll have to try this at the Lompoc to see if i can get a better sample.
