The variability of ratings on SARA hops is fascinating. Being new to the peninsula I need to drink more to understand if it's simply a variability of the product or if it's a style preference. So far, I've got nothing to complain about with the product. I've enjoyed all the hoppy beers I've had from them. They definitely veer a bit more to the bitter, a watery body (which I like - almost a merger of their saison feel with hops), and a blended hop profile rather than single hop juice bombs. There's usually a grain note to them as well. That rusticity man!

This tastes like it has a cinnamon roll in it. Lots of sweetness with nothing to balance it out and really not much in terms of hops presence. yet to have an IPA from SARA that I really like...they seem very unbalanced and overdone.

Straw ran color with tightly laced foam.
Aroma of grass and straw.
Drying finish with a grassy straw dank hop basis.



I guess I don’t have much more to add to this review right now.

On-tap at TRB.

A: Served a cloudy lemon color with a thick and dense bright white head. Head slowly faded into a fuzzy collar that left a network of sticky lace down the glass.
S: The nose is a bit dank and a bit tropical, but doesn't blow me away. There's a note or two of citrus as well.
T: Herbal hops hit up front followed by notes of tropical fruits, slight citrus, and dank and spicy hops. The finish has a touch of pine and balancing bready malt.
M: Medium body, slick, greasy, and oily mouthfeel. The carbonation is low, soft, and smooth.
O: A very clean and flavorful ipa. It's nothing exceptional, but I could drink this all day.
