Availability: Year-round

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.

Best Before F13

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a fingers worth of head

S: A good dose of minty, citrusy, piney hops with a little earthiness and bready malts

T: Nicely balanced, with the citrus and piney hops combining with the earthiness and breadiness of the malts. Finishes bitter

M: Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation. Prickly

O: A nice IPA that has a great balance between hops and malts with a good amount of bitterness. Nothing really too stand-outish though

3.08/5  rDev -17%

A - bright orange in color. Nice cascading on the glass

S - not much to speak of. Some floral and aromatics.

T - dry with a crisp spicy finish. Tasted very light compared to other craft ipa's

M - high carbonation. A bit too much in my opinion for the style

O - just another average craft ipa. Nothing special hear but it is refreshing.

3.88/5  rDev +4.6%

A - Anorange, bronze color with no clarity. Cloudy, with 1 finger of head, and a slight coating left on top of the brew all the way down. A little bit of lace left on the glass

S - Fruity citrus hops dominate, but not a thrown in your face hop splatter.

T - Bitter up front, grapefruit. Citrus towards the end.

M - Medium bodied, medium carbonation.

O - A lot more bitter than the smell, but this brew gets better by every sip. I did not think highly at first, but by the end I was enjoying this beer.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a nice cloudy dark straw with a nice froffy white head. Smells of citrus and floral, nice hoppy aroma. Tastes of light malt with some earthy and citrus notes, balanced, yet with a nice bite. Beer is light bodied and goes down very smooth for the amount of bite it has. Overall, a very good beer.

3.58/5  rDev -3.5%

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Best by November 2012.

Appearance: medium orange hue with a moderate to heavy haze and a nice, strong effervescence. Head is two fingers of frothy ivory foam. Quite good.

Smell: rich malt aroma with a bit of a dank quality and an earthy, herbal hop character. Perhaps not completely to my taste, but pretty well done.

Taste: again, the dank, rich malt flavor, which is perhaps a bit too muddy for my taste. Hop character is earthy, but less pronounced than in the aroma. Bitterness is relatively high. Not too bad, but not my favorite.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and concomitant creaminess. Pretty good, especially for the style.

Overall: this is not a bad beer, per se, and is pretty decent in the field of organic beers. It just doesn't fit well with my palate.
