This beer was served to me at BJ's in Bakersfield, the same town where it is brewed. Initial inspection reveals an amber color, beautifully dense head with lasting lace, and a fair amount of carbonation. The aroma is distinctly hoppy with little to no noticeable malting. The malt is present in the tasting, as it drinks refreshingly bitter, a nicely balancing the hops, grains, and alcohol. Finish is well hopped, but not overpowering. Medium body.

A very big thanks to Mr Solomon for sending this one my way as part of the Growlin BIF. Nothing like a good growler of IPA to work on throughout the day! Served cold and in many a pint glass, this one was consumed on 03/15/2009.
As I pour the first glass out I new I had a winner. This was a nice medium amber in color with a big head of white coming up and over the top of the glass and spilling down into a nice cascading and foamy side glass appearence. Rich and mellow hops at the same time, the aroma was full of light orange, pine, hints of butter like notes and a load of grain as I let it warm up to room temp on a few of the pours. Very mellow and drinkable IPA, the hops crept up on you as the medium bodied ale went down super smooth only to let it come back and bite the back of the tongue with a nice hop touch and a mellow and earthy biscuit like malteness. Rich and creamy, this was the drinkers IPA, and I loved every minute of it. I would have no issue with trying this one again any day of the week.

Pours a dark orange color with a decent white head.
Aromas are somewhat faint. Citrus hops smells, and hard candies.
Flavors are nice, not to strong, but the flavors that are there are tasty. Some nice creamy malts flavors, some tea like flavors, and a nice finish that is bitter with some grapefruit and orange hop flavors.
Nice full mouthfeel with good carbonation.
Drinkability is this beers strong suit. A tasty yet easy drinking American IPA. This will be a easy growler for my friend and I to finish.
