Bottle thanks to Jcwattsrugger. Pours semi-clear copper gold. Nose of pineapple, caramel malts, citrus and light pinewood box. Taste is strong caramel malts with citrus, hops and a dry almost cedar wood finish. Mouth feel is a little on the thin side, but not bad. Decent over all IPA. brokensail (16631) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 8, 2011
A: The pour is a lightly hazed golden-amber color color with a tall off-white head.
S: Sort of a bland aroma. There is some grass, a light floral note, and minimal citrus peel notes. There is a fair amount of sweet malt and bread to it, and just a very light grapefruit. Strangely, a touch of celery.
T: Light pine is there first with the strange celery flavor following. A bit of citrus peel along with sweet malt and bread. A little bit of additional sweetness in the form of toffee. There is just a mild bitterness.
M: Medium in body body and carbonation.
O: Just a mediocre IPA. Not very good hop character to it. bhensonb (15627) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 7, 2012
Bottle from Bruisin Ales. Pours orange amber with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is fruit/floral over mildly roasted caramel. Med body. Flavor is quite hoppy - but it’s fruit and floral, not harsh resin. Could be some citrus. It is full of hop. There’s some rough caramel in the backbone, but it’s all about the hop.
