Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
The generous addition of hops both during and at the end of the fermentation process (dry-hopping) gives our India Pale Ale its characteristic bitterness and piney citrus aroma and flavor. The medium body, crisp finish, and moderate alcohol and IBU levels makes this one of America’s most drinkable and best-selling IPAs.

44 IBU

The beer does not taste but definitely lacks taste for an IPA. Heavy on the ale side but not where it should be. Ie hoppy and bitter. At least it's an easy drinking ipa.....

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Orange amber color with practically no head.
Light aroma with predominant pine notes and hints of peaches.
Flavor of green tea, pine, orange towards grapefruit citrusy which is rather muted, spices and American yeast. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light body with medium carbonation.
Below average for style, but I would not complain to session this and have this as an option to main stream beers in no specialized markets.
