Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Angel City Brewery Angeleno IPA

The City of Angels: a big city, filled with big characters who come up with really big ideas. So what happens when you need to create a beer that captures the spirit of LA?

You go big. Angel City IPA: It’s big. It’s bold. It’s got lots of character and it embodies Los Angeles like no other.

A medium-bodied, copper-hued beer brewed with enough hops to satisfy. It’s the perfect treat for the hop inclined.

On tap. Pours clear orange-gold, with a small white head. Nose is nothing much, some faint herbal hops, touch grassy, and grain. Body is nice and lager-crisp, with a short, quick finish. Flavor has grain and floral hops up front, but both are sort of muted

Look - Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Copper in color with a two finger head and significant lacing.
Smell - has a mix of various hop flavors, with pine/spruce standing out the most.
Taste - bold on hop flavor indeed. initial mouthfeel packs a punch of hoppy bitterness that remains until the end. A hint of malt flavor, but mostly hops, hops, and more hops.
Feel - medium-bodied and medium carbonation. Respectable ABV at 6.1%.
Overall - LA isn't exactly known for its breweries, so this is a respectable effort. For me, this is a hoppy brew that lacks a bit on fragrance. It satisfies in one way, but leaves me a bit hanging in another. Not bad though.

Good bargain IPA, but the taste needs improvement.

The taste is similar to the odor of a skunk. Will not buy again.

Thick head lingers for a long time. Nice hoppy smell. Seems to have a bit a of a citrus taste that's not unpleasant. At 6.1% ABV this is a very nice IPA to drink on a hot SoCal summer's day-- or if you're in downtown L.A. partying.

Pours bright copper with white lacy head. Easy drinking hoppy IPA that’s a bit “rough on the edges” and pares well with taco night. Good standard California culture craft brew at 6.1% ABV.

I like that this has a lot of caramel malts. It's a bit too fizzy though and the hops aren't entirely balanced. I like this beer!

Look honey color with small head and good lacing
Smell earthy/piney with hint of grapefruit
Taste if you like a lighter hopped ipa this is worth trying. Not my favorite but very drinkable
