BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tenaya Creek Brewery
Nevada, United States
tenayacreekbrewery.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Hop Ride India Pale Ale is medium bodied and aggressively hopped using a technique called 'dry-hopping' which adds a nice delicate citrus aroma. Combine that with Magnum & Summit hops to kick up the bitterness, and Cascade hops for a floral boquet. You get a well balanced and very drinkable American IPA. We live in Las Vegas and enjoy the areas beyond the reach of the neon. Bootleg Canyon MTB Park is one of those places. Be Warned, the rattlers have just as much bite as this ale. If you want to ride there, its going to be a "hop ride."

This is a hazy dark orange-yellow in appearance, with a fluffy cloud atop it.

It’s a very citrus-forward IPA, with an aroma reminiscent of orange zest. Nicely rounded flavor, with some orange peel, a little pine, and a bit of apricot to bring it together like, say, a rug in the living room. Real clean finish, solid hop profile, this one’s a winner.

On-tap at Beachwood I,

A: Pours a hazy orange with a medium white head, some nice rings of lace.

S: Pungent tropical hops with definite citrus layers, hint of watermelon.

T: Lemon, pink grapefruit, citrus zest and papaya. Lots of great fruit character from the hops. Delicious and very West Coast in style.

M: Medium-bodied, resiny, yet fairly clean on the finish. Crisp carbonation.

O: A stellar IPA, this can stand up to the best of CA, loved this beer.

Pours darker than a typical IPA. Nose is heavy on hops. Very carbonated. Has a quick finish that reminds me of lemon grass and white pepper. Good IPA.

bomber poured into pint glass 24/8/11

A hazy golden orange with loads of tiny particles, just a few slowly raising bubbles that feed a two finger head that slowly falls to a thick film leaving partial rings of lace well down the glass

S big pine and grapefruit with some tangerine, pineapple and just a little toffee, smells great

T somehow there's even more pine then I could smell but the tropical fruits toned down a bit

M quite the bitter bite to it taking some enamel off my teeth, just a little burn from the booze but pretty mild

O I liked this one much more then some others on this site it would seem, I drank a few of these in Vegas and would drink it again

being the first hoppy beer I've had access to after 5 weeks in South America perhaps I may have got overexcited. you will need too judge for yourself and I recommend you do

a clean light amber pour with copious amounts of head, lots of nice looking lacing.
scents of caramel, grassy hops, 2 row, and a slight passion fruit scent.
an earthy bitter flavor up front followed by sweet caramel, bready malt, and lots of citrus.
a medium body pour with creamy mouthfeel and nicely carbonated.

a really nice ipa. very earthy and bitter but at the same time sweet and citrusy, which makes this a pleasant drinking experience.

A- Clear, pale amber with a fluffy white head that dissipates to a thick blanket, leaving spotty lacing behind.

N- Sweet honey-soaked malt and bitter grapefruit rind with herbal, piney undertones. Just how I like it.

T- Similar to the nose. Toasted malt dipped in honey, with a smooth but firm bitterness of pine and citrus rind. Lots of herbal and floral hops going on here, with some juicy citrus accents. There's no date on the bottle, but it tastes incredibly fresh. Long bitter and lightly sweet finish consisting of herbs, pine, grass, and floral hop leaves. There is also a mild peppery heat on the finish.

M- Medium-light body, slightly slick and sticky, moderate carbonation, and a bittersweet finish.

D- I was really impressed with this one. Good example of a west coast IPA. I encourage you to seek it out if you can get it fresh.
