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!

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

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

Beautiful french vanilla head, with a copper-orange hue. Nice pungent resinous smell that"s right up the nose. Very distinct smell that's quite addicting. Lovely lacing that is sticky and strong. Pure stuff here. Can taste the quality of all ingredients. Have to control myself with these. They go down fast due to how smooth and balanced it is. Just about perfect presentation. Very sweet hop presents. Very appealing IPA. Slight bitterness on the finish. Malts are a player here. The citrus deep resinous smell keeps you planted and is the star here. Awesome IPA!
