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!

Misc.: Crafted on Feb. 26, 2014

Poured a dark orangeish, amber, hazy color with 2-to-3 fingers of khaki-white pillowy head. Average-to-lively average foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Very good retention on the top.

Smelled citrus hops, nectarine, caramel malts, earthy rye malts, iced tea, light grapefruit, orange rind, bitter tropical hops and mango.

Tasted not quite as good as I hoped. Got citrus hops, nectarine, orange rind, mango and other tropical hops up front, immediately followed by bitter earthy malts, boozy, astringent alcohol and rye hops. Bitter aftertaste. Grapefruit notes come in late, but not a good overall taste.

Medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Astringent, bitter finish.

This IPA was just OK. I wavered on pretty much all five categories, so this could have gone a bunch of different ways.
