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."

22oz bottle into a pint glass
no bottling dates

Purchased for me by my girlfriend. The only bottled beer from a local brewery she could find in Las Vegas. (glad I don’t live there!).

A: Slightly hazy, golden yellow, 1.5 fingers width of of white colored head, good retention, lots of lacing. 4.25

S: Floral, soapy hops, citrus; firm sweet malty backbone. 3.75

T: Nice bitterness, citrus notes with grapefruit and orange, floral. Lots of malts, an almost smokey character. 3.75

M/D: Medium body, carbonation on the heavy end, dry on the finish, drinkability is average. 3.75

O: A good IPA, nothing really stands out, but a reasonable option if you are in Sin City and looking for a local brew. 3.75

This is a good, solid IPA.

Dark gold with smallish off-white head, steadily shrinking to foamy ring and wisps.

Aroma is resin, grass, hints of raisiny malt.

Aroma is pine resin, hints of grapefruit and grass,citurs rinds, raisiny sweetness with hop bitterness. It's more bitter at finish but pretty balanced, a lot like a lower grade interpretation of Russian River Blind Pig character.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet brown sugar and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is quite sweet, but has solid citrus forward hop qualities all around.

Serving type: bottle.
