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!

Nice copper bronze color and citrus smell. Looks and smell can deceive. Big hop profile west coast style. Decent malt and grapefruit rind. Much More pronounced resin and pine. 7abv good balance session beer with a kick. Funny a bit of a hop bomb but not a palate wrecker.
