Epic IPA (enjoyed on 10/18/16)
Poured on draft into pint glass.
A: Pours a dark amber with 1/2 inch light tan head. (3.75)
S: Pine and citrus hops with moderate honeyed caramel malt. (3.5)
T: Soft pine and citrus (orange with a hint of grapefruit) hops with honey caramel malt. (3.75)
M: Light body. Sweet (malt) and astringent (hops). (3.25)
D: Fairly strong in the malt department for style. Nice drinking otherwise...especially on tap after a hike in Yosemite. (3.5)

Amber with a white head, smells of grapefruit and pine. Taste definitely lacks from the suggested aroma, and has a big caramelly backbone. Feels a little more full bodied than your typical IPA, but not unpleasant. This isn't a great IPA, but I tend to revisit it from time to time. Cheers!

Comes out almost amber in appearance, small 1/3" head on it. Aroma doesn't pop dry hop wise as much as their pale ale does.

Taste, ok this one hits more bitterness. More crystal malt. A lot of bitterness without a lot of soft lush green hoppy flavors. Mild sweetness of caramel. Mouthfeel thick of malt, caramel again.

I dunno, this just seems like for the most part a brewery that is only there for tourists, other than their barleywine, a lot of the stuff seems pedestrian for the most part. Dirty lines occasionally. But this in a can is nice at least.

Got a fresh 6 pack from a local store. This is a very solid IPA. I have been making my own beer for years now and primarily make IPAs. Smell was good, color was good, taste was very pleasing. It is more of a fruity IPA, not piny like a lot of IPA lovers like. Over a very good IPA. I definitely recommend this brew.

Drinkable, but just barely. Way too hoppy, even for an IPA. Sour taste with undertones of urinal cake. Avoid.
