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!

Pours dark amber with a very thick foamy head. Head retention is good, and there is excellent lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is citrus hops. Very strong and pronounced. There is a malty taste up front - more of a citrus taste, quickly followed by a strong citrus, grassy, hoppy taste. There is an excellent bitter aftertaste at the end. Overall a great beer. To me, the malts and hops blend together very well.
