Usual color, light orange, carbonation just right. Good aroma, a little bit of everything, citrus, bitter, tropical. Just what citra is supposed to deliver.

Nice soft touch for being 100 ibu and 7.8%, was skeptical of this being at a single ipa festival, but thankfully, it wasn't one of those harsh bitter dipas that doesn't have a good hop mouthfeel. Columbus bittering, citra and centennial for flavoring, citra and cascade in the dry hop. Sounds like a classic hop recipe to me. Seemed to have less caramel, more crystal malt going on. Fine with me.

Ale Industries is making some good stuff, based on what I've had the last couple of times at the bistro.

The beer is on tap at The Pig & The Pickle (on August 7, 2015) so is not retired. ABV on this batch is 7.75%, very close to the 7.80% listed here.

Pours a dark orange with a white head and is decent to look at. The nose is all nice, clean and assertive fresh bitter hops and most inviting. Body is medium to bold, nice carbonation and a wonderful IPA bitter flavor with a long lasting hop finish. Nice beer.

Had this at EJ Phair Alehouse. It poured a bright and cloudy golden color, almost approaching orangey. Roma was of sharp hop and citrus. A sharp hop bite at every sip made this a good drinkable IPA. Lacing on glass was o.k. Didn't seem like a double IPA and the strength of the beer is well hidden. Good beer from a close by brewery.

Light orange, 1/2" off white head, looks good. Aroma hit the citra notes, tropical, citrus, pine, they're all there.

What looks like a big ass dipa at almost 8% and 100 ibu drinks lighter than that thankfully. The hops are used to provide flavors more than mouth grating bitterness. Stays away from crystal malt thankfully.

One of the best beers I've had from this brewery. A true west coast ipa.

Served in a pint glass at Toronado SF 8-21-2012

A: Cloudy with good lacing

S: floral, citrus, grassy

T: smooth hop punch with tropical tones. true west coast ipa with a fine balance of malt..not too dry or sweet

M: very complex and leaves you wanting more.

O: coats the tongue with a flavor profile that is typical with citra hops that is not overdone. alc. is very well hidden and discreet.

This pours a caramelly colored tan. Little to no aroma. Flat orange hop flavor, drying and flat bitterness. This doesn't represent the east bay at all. Given the generally positive reviews here I hope to revisit this with a more positive experience at some point. Stay tuned.
