Villager IPAVillager IPA
Notes: In the San Francisco spirit of innovation, Villager blends classic Northwest hops with contemporary ale yeast to establish a delicately constructed IPA. Villager's hop aroma is both citrusy and floral, complemented by notes of stone fruit and tropical flavor in the finish. A true expression of the cultural contrasts that embody our city by the bay, Villager brings a new twist to this West Coast style.

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.

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.

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.

Pours brilliant gold with one finger eggshell white head. Nose is well balanced between floral notes, citrus, ripe stone fruit, and some dankness. Nice pop of bitterness up front with a decent but of dankness giving way to some malty sweetness and lots of peach. Finishes semi dry with a nice intermingling of dank and sweet. Very enjoyable.

Slightly hazy gold with a white head that fades but left a nice ring of lacing. The aroma is sweet with pineapple and floral notes with a tiny whiff of pine. The taste is more bitter than the aroma lets on with a sweetness kicking in late and leaving a wonderful bitterness combined with candied pineapple finish. Very solid brew that finishes clean.

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