COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Everything youd expect from a great American IPA: Hop-forward, yet civilized. Bitter but balanced. Cascade hops ring loud and clear with citrus/pine notes and are backed up by a chorus of our other favorites - Apollo, Centennial, Chinook, Columbus, Crystal, and Simcoe.

Very fresh tasting. Tons of hops with a smooth finish. Every bit of a San Diego IPA as I could have expected.

080216. Can from Dan Murphys mighty fine beer this one with plenty of pineapple and tropical fruit flavours. Dull apricot skin colour with some haziness throughout. Full bodied with a resinous aftertaste.

Hopmaestro (1497) - rebro, SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2017
Aroma is piney and citrusy with a light herbal touch. Taste delivers a well balanced mixture of all those things we loock for in a classic American IPA. Tangerines, grapefruit, mangos with a wide floral aura covering it all. Fades out into a well balanced polished bitterness.

On tap. A very well made example, not insanely hopped but enough to be interesting.

slugman (1) - USA - NOV 21, 2016 does not count
I tried this for the first time about 2 months ago and was blown away. Almost, too many citrus hops, but loved it. A bit over priced, but so delicious, although not much head or body, just great fruity flavor. So I splurged 2 times in the last month and the fruit is gone? A new formula? I dont know what is going on, but this brew has changed BIG time. Not at all the same beer as it was. I know Miller/Coors bought them, but I am not sure that is timed with my tasting. However, regardless, it is not the same. I am going back to the new RED 79 at Trader Joes and Pup from Golden Road. Much more floral which is what I seek.

22oz bottle 8/5/16 (SNA L/O)-Pours golden with a decent sized head. Aroma of hop, pine, and slight malt. Taste of the same. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and goes down easy.

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2016
- goldenfarben mit leichter Schaumbildung - sehr schn wahrnehmbare Aromen nach Pfirsisch und Mango - perfekte Carbonisierung - geschmacklich fehlt dann die Ausgewogenheit zwischen den Fruchtaromen und der Hopfenbitternis - der Abgang wird dann durch eine wrzig-pfeffrige Note nochmals verschnt Fazit: Etwas unausgewogen, aber gut trinkbares IPA

One of my first forays into the Holy Grail of craft beers, especially IPAs, that is San Diego. Poured from a bomber into a large wine glass. Prestige gold color in the appearance with a fluffy clean white head. The aroma and flavor is balanced between a slightly sweet malt base and the supporting cast of a perfect hop blend showcasing grapefruit and pine characteristics making this a classic example of another great West Coast IPA.
