A few choices of IPAs and they span the full range of the style.
Session to the hoppy IIPA
Many other IPAs to choose from, but this is the most like our local West coast version.
FYI They have several versions of this one beer.
You have to TRY the Mosaic version!

Slightly hazy orange colored pour with a bubbly off-white head and lots of lacing. Earthy and hoppy aroma. Taste has a musty and earthy bitter flavor. Can also taste a bit of citrus rind. Moderate to high carbonation.

Mundane hop profile - dirty citrus, stale floral notes. The malt backbone is English and uneven, bending towards biscuity and stale instead of emphasizing fresh pale malts. Too much crystal malt comes through, reducing the impact of the hops (which isn't much to begin with). Lacks depth of flavour and expressiveness. Odd bubblegum hits on the finish, which isn't great with the lingering hop bitterness.

An imbalanced IPA with poorly chosen hop varietals and an unsatisfying presence on the palate. Not one I'd buy again.

D / AVOID

Hazy darkish amber with adequate foam and streaming bubbles when you jiggle the goblet. Musty and compost pail smell is the tip-off. Taste is gaaah! This is an eye-waterer. Bitter bilge with some spoiled fruit to boot. Very bitter aftertaste. Very weird. Otherwise quite attractive and pleasing carbonation. Just don't put it in your mouth. From the 12 oz bottle purchased at Ralph's supermarket.

On cask for Cask & Ye Shall Receive held at MacLeod Ale Brewing Company in Van Nuys, CA.

Pours a murky dark orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, earth, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus fruit, citrus zest, and earth 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 with a nice mix of citrus and earth hop characteristics.

Serving type: on cask.
