1 pint 6 fl. oz. bottle (7.8% Alc. by Vol.) shared by alexsdad06. Thanks Brad! Rating #98 for this beer.
Slightly cloudy copper coloured body with a small tan head atop. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus and fresh hops. Medium-bodied; Nice relatively mild flavour with fresh hops and lighter malt noticeable. Good bitter finish with a nice hoppy taste, but not too strong at all. Overall, a decent IPA, not too strong, but good to try! I sampled this pint on draught at Toronado in San Francisco, California on 28-June-2010. madmitch76 (24980) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2012

Hazy dark amber beer. Lively frothy head that dies away quickly. Smooth palate, a little dry. Fresh! Nice mix of marmalade orange and grapefruit hops with sweet and bitter notes. Fresh minerals and a trace of aniseed. Nothing shouty about this IPA but it seduces with it’s well joined up freshness.
Slightly orange red body with a non-existent head. Very smooth aroma, lightly spicy. Outstanding taste, hop accents are perfectly balanced with a nice sweet bit. Ending is spicy, yet still smooth. Very tasty. dcschiller (2208) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 16, 2011

22oz bottle from footbalm. Pours a clear golden brown with a medium fluffy white head. The aroma is the classic combination I expect from a west coast IPA: fruity, citrus hops with a nice floral quality and mild sweet caramel. The flavor has a light malt backbone with crisp citrus, mild fruits, mild earthy notes that create a moderate bitterness that lingers through the finish. Very drinkable.

A hazy amber beer with an orangey head. The aroma has notes of spices, citrus fruits, and alfa acids. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, spices, leading to a very bitter finish where notes of Amarillo hops lingers. jtclockwork (16685) - , New Jersey, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Bottle says "West Coast Style IPA". I think this is the one. Thanks to Wavers1 for the bottle. Pours clear orange amber. Nose and taste of pineapple, hops and caramel malts. Pine finish. scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2010
Pineapple guava aroma, effervescent gold, long sustained white fluffy head. Aggressively hopped, quickly bitter, tropical citrus. Divine. Doon (109) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 15, 2010
On Draft at Valley Brew Co. 8/15. I was quite surprised, as this was a very fine IPA. Glad I went with the Pitcher over the Pint! Very aromatic, crisp piney flavored IPA. Little sweetness, and just the right amount of bittering Hops. I would definitely recommend this brew!!
