American IPA |  7.20% ABV

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.

I went to Redwood City looking for an IPA at a small brewery, ... I found it and was not impressed.
So, my wife and I went into town to get a bite to eat. What a surprise - "Aly's on Main" had a beer on tap from Mass. I asked the bartender about the beer and he stated that this restaurant was one of 3 on the west coast that carried it. Here it is: clean, crisp, and refreshing. It was unfiltered, so their was a bit of turbidity and they used whole hops. The mouth feel was fantastic and the bite at the end was exactly what I was hoping for. The food was better than expected and the beer was fantastic. I will drive the 80 mile round trip for this again.

12 oz. bottle poured into a 12 oz. glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear orange with a white head that sticks around for a few minutes. Carbonation more than average and lacing heavy.

Aroma: Pine and citrus dominate along with hop bitterness. Smells like an IPA.

Taste: Pretty standard IPA-type flavors. Lemon, orange, citrus, and lots of hop bite. Alcohol is muted despite the somewhat high ABV.

Mouthfeel: This is pleasant to drink. Some IPAs are basically like drinking alcoholic Lysol; this isn't one of them.

Overall: Pretty good, standard IPA. Nothing wild or fancy, but would appeal to casual IPA fans and the "I must drink every IPA that exists ever because IPAs are nectar handed down from Zeus in beer form!" crowd. Unlikely to be anyone's favorite, unless they are "organics only" folks, in which case it will almost definitely be their favorite.
