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!

Poured into a pint glass. Review 3/18/14.

Amber color with a nice white head.
Aroma is really, really nice. Lots of delicious citrus and some herbal notes.
Taste doesn't quite live up to the nose. The hops are definitely the star, but overall the complexity of the flavor isn't there. Finish is long and bitter with grapefruit rind.
Body is medium with good carbonation.

Overall, a very good beer that promised more on the nose than it could deliver. But I still really liked it.
