Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: PhxHorn on 01-24-2008

Warm copper amber in color, SanTan brewers have re-defined this classic English Ale. An intense bitterness derived from the distinct citrus/pine flavor of Pacific Northwest Hops. A dry, crisp malt character & aggressive alcohol dominate our I.P.A. and make this bitter beer a hop-head’s passion!

Deep amber with fine white persistent lacing. Subdued citrus aroma. Hop flavor hits first, piney & bitter. Finishes astringent with lingering piney flavor. Good mouthfeel, not too thin or syrupy. Overall a good example of the style.

Too bitter for my taste. Or maybe just not enough sweetness to balance it.

Solid IPA, nice hoppy piney taste to it that lingers.
