COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
All hail the Rich Mans IPA! A bold copper-colored beer with beautiful gold edges, and crowned with a strong white head. The aroma is grassy with a nice orange and malt presence. The mouthfeel is smooth and solid, with malt that backs up the sticky bitterness. The taste is pine, citrus, and a light malt sweetness that all interplays with the alcohol. Hops, hops, hops, and more hops! Occupy a bar stool, the 1% of beers has arrived!

Draft at the brewpub - San Diego. Pours hazy gold with a creamy, off-white head. The aroma has spicy pine, jammy citrus, some dry orange rind.

brokensail (16342) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Pours a hazy amber color with a fluffy off-white head. Strong citric character with lots of grapefruit, tangerine, and lemon peel. There is a nice touch of pine and some sweet toffee malt. A bit of floral hops in there, too. The flavor is a good blend of sweetness and bitterness. Plenty of pine and grapefruit peel with a very strong citric hop profile and flavor. The bitterness is mostly present on the finish.

mcberko (16215) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2017
On tap at Monkey Paw, pours a hazy bronze with a small beige head. Aroma brings out resinous hops, bready malt and maybe a touch of butter. Flavour is massive, with resinous hops, caramel malt and a hint of butter. Nicely balanced and thankfully the butter is also minor. Okay.

bhensonb (14736) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Can from Bine and Vine. Pours copper with a slight white head. Aromas of brown sugar, resin and citrus. Full bodied with significant carbonation. First impression is brown sugar, then resin and citrus. It finishes pretty darn bitter, always with that lurking roasted malt background. Damn tasty ale. Enough hop to preserve flesh.

crossovert (12076) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2012
A pretty weak IPA, especially by SD standards. It is super sweet with no hop bitterness whatsoever.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Tap at Monkey Paw. Clear golden pour. Good white lacing. Nose is sticky, some noble rot grape, vanilla oil. Interesting- different. Taste is clean, juicy, tangy. Wicked bitter hop body. Holy monkey.

KyotoLefty (9845) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 29, 2012
Draught at the brewpub. Sweet toffee, butter, grassy hops. A cloying crystal bomb with cake and then dirty grassy hop finish. Been finding a lot of these lately. Doesnít really work for me. Too much of the caramel.
