so evidently mendocino now makes beer in saratoga. cool they made one for the locals, lousy that its only okay. a frothy looking ipa, brass radiant glowing and clean looking, with a tall white head on it. the nose is honey sweet malt and boring bitter hops, not much going on in the hops really, which lets me down. the malt flavors the beer as much as the hops do, its sweet and fuller bodied, and it lingers in the finish. i need more from the flowers though, its so simple and under gunned, give me something. this is like an english pale as much as it is an american ipa, which is about the worst critique i can throw at a beer. medocino always makes me wonder, often unimpressive, and this one is too. downright average at room temperature, so drink it fast. overall a pretty pedestrian offering.
