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.

This poured the color of a malty amber with some light foaming. I found an aroma of toffee and pineapples to dominate. It’s intensely bitter with a lingering sweetness. The malt balances out the candied pineapple, caramel and toffee notes from the hops.

Picked up at the brewery two nights ago, growler to a pint glass
Pours a very hazy gold with almost no transparency. Vibrant amber in the middle thinning out to a more tangerine on the sides and bottom of the glass. Little carbonation, alright lacing- not bad but incredibly thick on the eyes
Aroma of grapefruit, lemon, lots of pine, and a sweet but balanced malt. Not super pungent, but come together well, even if you have to stick your nose down pretty far in it.
Taste of strong upfront hops, grapefruit, pine, and a wide range of citrus. A sweet malt backs it all up which, like the nose, is able to keep a fine balance. All comes together well, solid tribute to the style
Mouth is consistent with the rest of the beer, medium body with a high bitterness. Nice sticky and dry finish, alcohol very well concealed. Super drinkable, killing a 64oz growler of this for memorial day will be no problem
Overall this stuff is really good, strong hop profile balanced well with a subtle yet rigid malt backbone. Good to know fiftyfifty is good for more than just Eclipse, can't wait to drive back to drink there
