Notes/Commercial Description:
This unique India Pale Ale features our favorite hops—Simcoe, Amarillo and Nugget. A generous Amarillo and Simcoe dry hop provide for an assertive, hop-forward nose and front palate. We don’t use traditional bittering hops in our IPA, providing nothing but stimulating citrus and floral characteristics.

Inspired by a recipe from our good friend and fellow homebrewer Tim from the North Shore Homebrewers Club.

3.38/5  rDev -8.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

The beer poured with a nice fizzy head that calmed downed in a bubbly one finger head and had a pleasant light golden color that accentuated its liveliness.

The head was complex and had a lot of unique notes to test any sniffers main tool. I picked up some normal smells such as banana, cloves and grapefruit. More interestingly cat urine on a scallion plant likely emanated from the different process required in producing an organic beer.

The taste and mouthfeel seemingly evaporated and affected predominately the middle and back of the mouth. The flavors corresponded to the more unique smells that I have already mentioned. I think it is a good beer that offers interesting pairing combinations since it posseses unique flavors.

In conclusion, the beer is a valiant and green effort that showcases how an IPA and beer in general can be made environmentally friendly.
