A true IPA that is designed to be more drinkable and refreshing than IPAs typical of the Northwestern United States. Citrus cascade flavors dominate the palate, but don’t overwhelm.

Dark amber. Thin white head with a fair amount of lacing. Smells of hops and citrus. Mmmmm.... Full bodied hops with a citrus finish. Nice mouthfeel, a little fizzier than most, which i like indeed. Nice aftertaste as well, the refreshing citrus continues and readies the palette for more. Overall a really nice IPA that I would recommend to anybody visiting my home state of Montana. Really a diamond in the rough.

Poured from a bomber into a sampler. A moderate pour produces a creamy, frothy and billowy head that threatens to overflow the glass. The head lasts well, coating the top of the beer and the sides of the glass. The beer is a pale amber color with medium carbonation and is hazy.

Plenty of aromatic hops on the nose. The taste is quite unique, with most of the flavor provided by citrusy and spicy hops with a bit of something extra that I can't put my finger on- perhaps some malty flavors shining through. A hint of a sweet, candy-like taste to balance the hoppiness.

This is a very tasty IPA and probably a bit lower in alcohol than most. It's pretty easy drinking for an IPA, and probably just exceeds the bitterness of a typical west coast american pale.
