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.

Had this a few times before, but never on tap.

Standard IPA pour. Rather midwestern-seeming hop profile, with loads of centennial and amarillo. Tastes a bit more variegated, less green citrus and more tropical nodes as the simcoe hops shine through. The hop profile is one of the best and most complex I've ever come across, and it spite of its variety and nuance it never gets too intense or cloying. Nice malt balance on the back end, too.
