Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: WanderingFool on 04-17-2009

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 7/2012.

Pours a murky honey orange with a 1/2 inch foamy orange-tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of citrus fruit, citrus zest, and some slight honey aromas. Taste is of citrus fruit, citrus zest, and a slight malt finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness that lingers on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink. Bonus points for being organic too.

Mostly clear copper color. A two-finger head settles into a nice pancake and leaves plenty of lacing. Appearance is nice. There isn’t much aroma to this one: it’s yeasty; cracker malt-forward and a faint grassy/piney note in the background. Slight grapefruit as it warms. The taste is subdued but clean and crisp with an earthy hop bitterness.

The beer looks good and feels good – it tastes and smells relatively bland, against a backdrop of solid NE IPAs.
