COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our India Pale Ale exhibits a complex hop aroma, largely due to the generous usage of Cascade and Centennial hops, as well as a subtle malt character from the various malts used to achieve the wonderful balance exhibited in a world-class IPA. San Diego has become world renown for the wonderful and flavorful beers produced here – and India Pale Ales are no exception. Our national award winning interpretation of the style reflects both the history of IPA and the American variation of this distinct beverage. We hope you enjoy it! 66 IBU

drpimento (3224) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Excellent IPA! Served with a nice thick, creamy, foamy, cream-colored head that settled to a creamy (ouch - what’s a synonym for creamy?) cover and lots of fine, sheeting lace. Color is a clear amber with loads of tiny bubble trails. Aroma is an aromatic blend of hop and caramel malt with a hint of fruit. Flavor’s like nose, has limited sweetness, perfect balance between bitter, carbonic tang in front, with that sweet just to compliment. Body and carbonation perfect. Finish is a little long and pleasant, very drinkable, and only the suggestion of alcohol. I want more!

zoucrew102 (1479) - - AUG 8, 2016
Bomber, thanks Christina! Tropical fruit hop aroma with pine resin and citrus hop notes. Pours light amber colored with a large, soapy off white head that has excellent retention and good lacing. Starts with some tropical fruit and citrus hop flavor that has resiny hop notes lying beneath. Finishes dry with pine resiny hop bitterness that is quite strong and coats the palate. Nice IPA, but very bitter.

Bawelt (626) - Lyon, FRANCE - AUG 3, 2016
IPA comme je les aime, à l’américaine avec son léger côté malté. Nez assez caramel, un peu sirop d’érable, un fond très vert, très pin dans une forêt bien résineuse, légèrement agrumes. Bouche à l’attaque ronde, maltée, caramel. On part ensuite sur une amertume assez verte, légèrement agrumes aussi, très herbale enfin. Longueur verte et forestière. Bel équilibre.

Hazy gold beer, good cream colour head. Palate is airy, semi dry and has good fine carbonation. Airy malts, a trace of sweetness. Light and thin hops - orange and orange peel, touches of spice and pine. Light finish. Perfectly decent IPA but after tasting their DIPA and Pale Ale, I was hoping for much more here.
