Notes & Commercial Description:

Our “East Coast” version of a West Coast-style IPA. Intense hop flavors and aromas of tropical and citrus fruits and pine dominate. A subtle malt sweetness brings the beer into balance.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip

A. Pours a mostly transparent golden amber with a 2 finger white foamy head that last for about 2 minutes then has a nice lacing around the glass.

S. Citrus peel and pine fill the nose. Slight sweet malts to accent the hops. Smells nice.

T. A very clean APA. You get some of that citrus and pine from the hops and then some sweetness with it followed by some nice bitterness. It has a floral presence about it. A nice APA with some different elements than I expected after the aroma. Very well put together. It brings alot of qualities as other IPA/APA's but they really hit highlighting the overall balances of flavors in the beer.

M. A nice body for an APA. About a 4 on a scale 1-10 for thickness. It's almost juicy. Slight dry finish like white grape juice. Carbonation is spot on. Hits the tongue at first the lingers on the palate after the swallow.

O. A really well put together APA. Pretty much everything in this beer is done very well and obviously was aimed at perfection. Many APA/IPA's out there now focus on flavor and aroma which are prob the two most important factors but MBC did a great job at mouthfeel and everything just kinda comes together as an overall very enjoyable beer. Well done.
