Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
This West Coast/Rocky Mountain-style India Pale Ale is back-hopped for a more intense hop bitterness, flavor and aroma without the balance of caramel malts like our Midwest-style Baldock IPA. It has medium-high alcohol content, high fruity, floral and citrus-like American-varietal hop character, deep golden color and medium maltiness.

Light floral nose. Pours brilliant amber under a ½” foam tap that produces thick lace. Herbal spicy hops blend with citrus and a suggestion of mint dominate the palate with an herbal hoppy astringency on the finish with an assertive but not harsh bitterness. Medium body and carbonation.

On tap at TJ's, Paoli.

Murky orange-amber color, with a small collar of white bubbles on top; minimal lacing. Kind of dead looking. Floral aroma, citrus juice, dull hops, bready caramel malts. Taste was pretty sweet, with the caramel malts in the forefront, backed by some floral/herbal/leafy hops, and a touch of bitter citrus oils, some mineral notes. Not very fresh or crisp, and certainly not like any good West Coast IPA I've ever had, which is what the beer was advertised as being. Medium body, somewhat slick mouthfeel. Meh, basic homebrew kit stuff here. Works maybe as a regular pale ale, but this wasn't really an IPA.
