Received this malt bomb in a trade today . . . Honestly, it may be an ok ipa fresh but not 8 months later.
Bottled 4/22/16
Drinking 1/15/17
By this point it is only an ipa according to the label.
My fellow BA's, do not send 8 month old ipa's to your trading partner. Do not even send 2 month old ipa's to your trading partner. Cheers !

A - Bright, hazy apricot body. Thin, fine white head with nice retention and poor lace.

S - Grapefruit, green wood, peach preserves, lemon leaves.

T - Super earthy. Dusty peach, lemon, raw wood. Dry, slightly funky pot.

M - Medium body with a light, dry finish.

O - Great nose, but unfortunately the flavor profile falls short of expectations.

Poured from a bomber to a pint glass

Appearance: Thick white head on top of a clear, pale gold base

Smell: Grassy with small bits of pine and grapefruit. Nothing overwhelming or incredibly hoppy.

FLavor: Bittersweet taste with a fairly prominent hop base. Bitterness is a little abrasive but not in an over-hopped way. Finish is lingering citrus tartness.

MF: Smooth and a little creamy, with a little more sweetness than expected. Very drinkable

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Poured a nice crystal clear honey amber hue with a good half a finger head that faded to leave a thin light blanket and halo.

S - Aromas of sweeter malts, caramel, acid, light metal, herbal, older hops. Not much going for the nose.

T - Taste is much more malt heavy than it should. Caramel, sweeter malts, faint faint bitter grapefruit, lightly vegetative. Definitely past its prime.

M - Mouthfeel isnt bad, lighter, smooth.

O - Overall, clearly not the freshest bottle. Bet this would have been much tastier fresh.

Bomber into a snifter. The brew appears a clear copper color with white spotty to stringy lacing effect.

The smell is herbal and grassy with a bit of dank appeal. As more whifs are taken, it has a solid green grassiness and somewhat soapy feel.

The taste is herbal, grassy, pine-like yet fruity with rinds/zest. Some vegetative aspects are also included with a little soapiness and caramel malt in the aftertaste.

This is medium bodied and modestly carbonated. Not bad. Ive never had anything from this brewery before this experience but something about this seens very familiar. Thanks again Tim for the share.

On tap at The Hopyard in Pleasanton on 9/1/2011 (going through my notes and posting older reviews).

A: Golden, clear. Medium head and head retention. Tiny white bubbles.

S: Subtle, earthy hops.

T: Light on hops for an IPA. Super-balanced with the malt flavor. Ultimately, it tastes more like an ESB or British pale, rather than an American IPA. Pleasant earthiness and green tea flavor. Light fruitiness (certainly not as much citrus as a lot of West Coast IPA's, though).

M: Medium body and carbonation.

O: Minus points for being un-IPA-like, but it's a tasty, highly drinkable beer.

Scored the 6 pack while on Thanksgiving vacation in Yosemite.

A - Very dark ambery/orange. Very nice off white, one finger head. Very nice retention and lacing on the glass. Crystal clear without any floaters.

S - Plenty of orange, lemon, and mango piled up on some bready malts that also seem to be giving off a hint of something spicy.

T - Starts off very dry and bitter. Not picking up a whole lot of the citrus. Seems to drink a pretty heavy on the malts with the hops just being there to add the bitterness. Not as hop forward in flavor as I like my IPA's.

M - A little watery without a lot of afterthought. Loads of carbonation!

O - Eh, not too impressed. Way too many other IPA's in the world to settle for an average one.

22 Oz bottle
Pours clear amber and has a nice white head
It has a maltier presence than i like typically
But it is at the end of its best buy date. Hops also
present with some bitterness but I look for more.
Clean mouthful, no lingering tastes.
Good enough to suggest to try out.
