We visited this brewery after a day of playing in the snow. It's a very nice place --- it keeps a low profile in quiet and beautiful Truckee, CA. As a BIG fan of IPAs I had to give their IPA a shot. What a wonderful treat! Beautiful color leads to a fabulous citrus and hoppy smell that is heavenly. The taste is the complete package --- full body, smooth and a nice mixture of hops/malt creating the right bitterness. I don't get out this way too often, but I'm looking forward to my next visit to this fairly undiscovered beer haven.

Growler from FiftyFifty Brewpub. Pours clear red with slight amber hue. Two finger off-white head. Aroma of pine with some bubble gum. Flavor is slightly spicey with dry, bitter finish. Light in the mouth with moderate carbonation. An easy drinking IPA.

My first ever 50/50 brew, I think it may have been at the Truckee beer festival years ago. Not important.

Glowing orange pour, and smack of dry hopping, I knew this was the closest thing to high quality ipa anywhere near Northern Nevada (yeah, there's some good ones in Reno, but not in this upper echelon). Maybe its just bc its from truckee, but its not a stretch to smell some good buds in this one.

Taste, so light on its feet, yet so much hop mouthfeel and bitterness. I would guess simcoe is all up in this brother, along with some cascade hops for the classic feel. Really, all the stuff you loved from ipas decade+ ago, and the new wave of hop varieties you get in the newbies, that instead of the usual citrus, you now have lots of pine (and citrus grapefruit).

I think I've come to like the ryepa a little bit more, but given all the slide variation ipas, the rye and the 5 or so stout varieties, this is my favorite "local" brewery (unless Sierra Nevada counts, but its like 200 miles from me. . .)

Murky unfiltered appearance, golden-amber in color. Not much head or lacing. Soft citrusy aroma, floral and lightly sweet and grainy. Tastes great, juicy and floral, dry and crackery malt. Little grapefruit and orange. Pretty soft mouthfeel, it finishes mildly bitter and quite smooth. Really nice, another great FiftyFifty beer.
