Servied In a pint glass has a nice coffee color almost white head. Light lace on the glass. The smell is of malts and hops, as you would expect in an IPA. The mouth feel is creamy smooth light sweet bitter after. The over all taste is malt pine and dark fruit. The hop bitter is great with a nice hop finish. Found this place because I could smell the grain brewing, had to be a brewery close, and it was right across the street.

On tap at the brewpub in Solana Beach. Dark brown in the tall tulip with a very nice off-white foam. Malty with a touch of sweetness, but ah, the hops. This is more evidence that as much as people breed and experiment with hops, it's hard to improve on Cascades. Brewer also includes Simcoe and rates the IBUs at 76.

Rich and malty with a big flowery nose. Fruity but sharpened up with a nice tang of hops. Malt flavor makes me think of an oatmeal stout. A warm taste of orange peel with that fresh, fragrant hoppy zing.

This is more of a Brown IPA than black, but it's yet another interesting variation on this sub-style. Foam lasts nicely, with fine carbonation. A highly drinkable hoppy brew I'm glad to have tried.
