Notes/Commercial Description:
A classic beer for those beer lovers who love their hops, Happy Camper IPA will take the Pepsi Challenge (or IPA challenge, as we say in New Mexico) against any other pretenders to the throne. Was it divine providence that made this beer the king of the IPA world? Was it a tireless pursuit of glory? No, this IPA has a top-secret recipe to thank for its success, and this meticulously formulated combination of several different hops combined with a very specific brewing process give Happy Camper IPA a spicy, citric, and floral infusion of hop character, which is masterfully counterbalanced with the full-bodied maltiness characteristic of the Santa Fe Brewing Company’s distinctive beers.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: poured from a can into an IPA glass to a nice golden orange with a finger of off white head that is slow to fade and leaves excellent lacing
S: smells of citrusy hops, caramel and a hint of pine
T: taste is bright citrusy flavors with a hint of pine and a nice underlying caramel sweetness from the malts. swallow is more pine and citrus with a bit more caramel
M: this beer is on the lighter side of medium on the mouth with soft yet adequate carbonation and a oily refreshing finish from the hops
O: I wouldn't call it earth shattering but my goodness is it very drinkable. it might have just a little too much residual sweetness but it's still fantastic.

Serving type: can
