BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Tenaya Creek Brewery
Nevada, United States

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."

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.

Poured on tap a hazy light orangish yellow under a 1/2" thick white head which fades to the rim and leaves some spotty lace. Aroma is citrusy and pine forward. Flavors are citrus and malt. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Finish is bitter.

Undated 650 ml bottle into pint glass. Pours a hazy amber with a thin off white head. Initial impression is emphatic citrus, grapefruit, pine, and tropical fruit, somewhat balanced by crystal malt. Mouthfeel is medium, as is carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden. Finish is a little on the sweet side, making this a less-than-refreshing IPA. Overall, it was enjoyable but not exceptional.

A very nice one finger head with really good retention. The head is bright white, leaving heavy lacing on the glass. The color of the beer is a medium yellow color with a light orangish hue. The beer is slightly cloudy, but some carbonation is visible.

Grapefruit, pine, floral, toasted malt, bread, and yeast.

A ripe grapefruit resin, and floral with bread biscuits, toasted malt.

The mouthful is creamy slightly carbonated and finish crisp

This is a good a good IPA. A very balanced beer with nice hop flavors.

Copper colored beer, off white, smallish 1/4" head. Average in the lace/retention department. Real mild hop aroma, especially for an ipa.

One of those old school 90s ipas, lots of bitterness, not much hop flavor, lots of crystal malt with plenty of caramel. Some metallic feels. The summit hops don't impart much garlic here, more bitterness. Bomber format is stupid.
