From notes taken 11/27/16:

Orange-amber and semi-opaque, topped with biscuity-tan, foamy, creamy, chunky head of excellent retention with a tight latticework of lace. Aromas of resin, mango, sweet orange, caramel, candied fruit. Tastes like all of this and more, a blend of fruit and caramelized sugar and malt tartness with rind, resin, pine bitterness and spice around the edges, just enough to balance. Surprisingly bready aftertaste, but peppercorn retro-olfaction if you seek it out. Full-bodied, somewhat syrupy but sloshy with fine, abundant, dense carbonation, slightly astringent.

L: Hazy dark straw color. Pretty good lacing.

S: Pine, citrus. Little bit of bready malt.

T: Some malt up front quickly followed by earthy and piney hops.

F: Moderate body, oily hops that let the aftertaste linger for awhile. A little bitterness in the finish but pretty wet for an IPA.

O: Pretty drinkable IPA. Nothing spectacular about it but sometimes it is nice to have an IPA that isn't overpowering or crazy bitter.

Yellow colored beer, just like their hefeweizen but without the wheat haze. Aroma had a little bit of hops, non proprietary, and almost a lack of malt notes. If this has dry hopping, its very little.

Lots of bitter going on, 60 ibu level stuff, lots of carbonation, crystal malt. Wish there was more hop flavor. Sits in that level of supermarket long hop boil bitter ipa vibe. I'm pretty sure this recipe came out of the 90s. You've had some iteration of this beer many dozens of times if you've been drinking ipas for a time before the phrase new money came around.

Pours a vibrant pale orange color with a rocky white head. Aroma citrus, orange, pine. Taste follows with pine, resin, orange, orange marmalade, slight citrus and earth. Mouthfeel is thin to medium, slight oily with a touch of prickly carbonation on the front. Overall, this is a very nice ipa, definitely west coast leaning, with some english ipa character.

Clear deep gold color with off-white head. Aroma is on the malty side with some light honey notes and some floral hops. Taste is also slightly malty but overall clean and the finish has a light hop bitterness with lingering orange flavor. Medium body and carbonation. Really straightforward, old school IPA.

Clear medium amber, thick creamy long lasting head.
Aroma is nice but not prominent.
Taste is balanced but hoppy bitterness lingers on the aftertaste.
Medium slick feel, low carb.
Decent IPA but lacks the citrus bitterness that I like.
