COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A fine example of the IPAs Britain sent to India during British colonization. Since the beer needed to travel a long distance without spoiling the IPA is high in alcohol and extremely high in hops, both of which naturally preserve the beer. IPA is both malty and bitter, but the hop character is most pronounced.

Bomber from Bottles N Bins in Monterey, CA. Pours translucent gold with a white head. Mild hop aroma, tho it has a certain "bite". Med body or so. Flavor is lightly fruity hop and some malt. It is towards dry, and it is bitter. Back in the day this would have been top-hole.

From a growler at a Bottle Share. Typical small brewery IPA. nothing to get over excited about.

This one had almost no aroma to speak of, other than a slight whiff of pale malts. Taste had just a hint of bitterness, and not much character. Wrong hops all around, I think.

This light gold beer has an amazingly floral aroma. It smells like lemongrass. It is a very mild IPA which isn't too bitter. It's one of my favorite IPAs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4oz sampler -

3rd beer of the sampler flight, and easily almost my favorite of the beers (the favorite would be their porter). A inviting aroma of piney and citrusy hops, with just a touch of malty sweetness showing up. This revealed to be pretty much the flavor as well, as the hops asserted themselves very nicely and the brewmaster made this IPA on the dry side, which was great. It really let the woody, citrusy hops show thru. Really a suprise beer and highly recommended if in Monterey, CA.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 3, 2011
Clear golden coloured beer with some very light carbonation and a very small white head. Fruity hoppy bitter hinted refreshing aroma. Full light bitter palate. Finish is hoppy bitter with a short bitter ending. Not extreme, but balanced.

light amber .little body boring. Not offensive, but truly lacking much character for a California IPA.

marcus (9393) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 1, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Pours orange with a fluffy white head and a light floral aroma. There is a nice caramel malt flavor and just enough hop bitterness to be interesting. Dry finish.

On-tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy amber with a moderate white head, spider web lace. Smells lightly hoppy citrusy and malty. Tastes hoppy and citrusy sweet, very sweet. Caramelly malts, slight resin. Medium body, subdued carbonation.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 2, 2008
On tap. Pours a clear dark brown body with a long lasting off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is of spiceey and earthy hops. Taste is floral hops with a nice sweetness backing it up. Lively bubbles. Good IPA.
