I really love this beer, and I don't understand a few of the negative reviews of the 680 Mahogany IPA. Not every IPA needs to be an alcohol bomb hop-monster or an overly bitter ESB. It is EXACTLY as the bottle label describes... "Mildly bitter"and its unique floral-citrus finish someone complained about is actually very refreshing for an IPA, and one of the reasons my wife (normally only a lager/hefe drinker) likes it as well. If I want to go bolder, I simply go to their Branch Line double IPA. The 680 label even shows a "bitter-sweet" range and "light-full" range on the bottle along with icons for the best food pairings (pizza/curries/spicy foods/blue cheese/gingerbread). So...either the negative reviewers can't read, or they need to get over themselves. This is a GREAT red (ok mahogany) IPA!

This brewery popped up in my home town all of a sudden. I would be excited about it but they are clueless on what the craft beer market wants. Their 680 ipa tastes like crap. Too malty, no floral/citrus notes. Their brewing style would have been amazing if it were 1996. They need to step it up. Start realizing what the public wants. Do u see what's selling schubros??? Hoppy, floral , Dank and unique beers. Unless u change your ways , your investment is goin down the toilet . Do some research and then get back to us here in the Bay Area. If you need a consultant I'm your man. But you absolutely cannot open a brewery in San Ramon and not even claim one west coast ipa!! Let alone a double ipa!! Damn, I feel bad for your guys. Your goin in the wrong direction. Stop goin wrong... Go right. Good luck

Comes out really, really foamy. I tipped the glass as much as I could and still got about half and inch of froth. I had to scoop it out with a spoon. The taste is rather bland for an IPA. Some hoppiness, but no distinct flavors. It's slightly carbonated, and mild in strength. It's a local favorite, but not sure if I'd have this one again.
