In the San Francisco spirit of innovation, Villager blends classic Northwest hops with contemporary ale yeast to establish a delicately constructed IPA.

Solid West Coast IPA, usually readily available in Northern California Costcos. Very fragrant amroma, flavorful with clean finish. Enjoyable brew well worth try.

A reliable, middle-of-the-road IPA. The can/label design wins major points for this artist and beer drinker, but the flavors and finish of the Villager IPA isn't enough to warrant major kudos. It's worth trying, but it's nothing special (excepting the aesthetics).

They say on the can this is a San Francisco style IPA but I was not aware of such a style :) Pours a light straw color, decent head. Carbonation is touch high IMO. Aroma is bready, herbal/floral, not much in the way of citrus notes despite what they claim on the above description. Taste is hard pinpoint. There are some malty bready notes mixed with a piney hop character that tastes more in line with a straight pale ale - not hoppy enough for a typical IPA (this wouldn't be the first beer that has this categorical problem.) This is not a terrible beer, not sure if I'll get it again.

Budweiser color, aroma and taste. How can this be an IPA?

Good mouth feel.

Either this is a bad IPA or she poured the wrong beer.

On draft, pint glass. Very pale gold, lots of carbonation. Sweet floral and grassy nose with some lemon in there too. Similar taste, pine, light citrus. Dry, bitter finish.

Got this super fresh in Whole Foods. Nice light gold color with decent inch white head. Aroma was a little on the faint side but was decent tropical/citrus. Taste had a burst of bitter followed by a surprising honey malt flavor that balanced nicely. Finish was mildly bitter. Nothing crazy going on but a very solid enjoyable IPA. Reminded me a little of Lagunitas IPA.

Pours a pale gold straw color with fluffy white head leaving significant lacing. Nose is faint piney hops with a hint of sweet malt. Taste follows ,very mild -I would guess this is a pale ale if I hadn't seen the can. Easy and unoffensive.
