Notes/Commercial Description:
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!

look: 3.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

This is a little hazy copper colored beer with a small, white fluffy head. The aroma, though, is amazing. It filled the room seconds after I popped open the cap. A minute and half later, with the beer seated 2 feet away, I can smell it. That kind of overpowering hoppy aroma is rare. It's full of resinous, evergreen, holly notes. I very rarely give a 5 on aroma--maybe once or twice on BA ever--but I'm going to on this one. It is a delight to smell.

The taste is very good, but not the transcendental aroma experience. I love the emphasis of flavor over mere bitterness, always a mark of a good IPA. It's got some sweet malt too, but of course the emphasis is the peppery piney hops. Good body, but not too heavy.

Very distinctive IPA from a brewery I've never heard of before. Really, the smell is just amazing. I'm going to pour another glass now and just swirl it around under my nose.
