Style | ABV
American IPA |  6.70% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
A beautiful copper brew ripe with citrus aroma from legendary American Cascade hops. The nice, initial hop bite fades to reveal the perfect subtleties of a well-rounded India Pale Ale. Notice hints of orchard fruit crispness that will leave the palate begging for more.

On tap @ Irish Pub, Lewisburg

A- pours a slightly hazy copper color with a small creamy white head that retains nicely, leaving some thick lacing behind

S- tropical and citrus fruit hop blend mixes with some doughy malt aroma, with a hint of pine at the end

T- mango and guava flavors up front mix with a slight citrus bitterness, balanced out by a big bready malt backbone, slightly sweet finish

M- medium body with medium prickly carbonation leads to a super creamy mouthfeel and ends in a smooth silky finish

O- nice tropical and citrus notes, although a little raw around the edges. Would prefer a little less bready malt presence so that the hops can shine, but still has high drinkability

My local brewery/brew pup. Appearance has some hope haze but not too bad.

Smell is...off. almost a sour-ish that I can't put my finger on.

Taste is okay, not very strong hop profile, which I love in a good ipa.

Great mouthfeel for me. Clean but without the resin I love (damn you head hunter!!!)

Overall, as much as I love to support local beers and breweries, this brewery has never done it for me. I have tried almost all of their beers and yet to order more than one when I have. I want to like and support this brewery, yet every time I drink a beer I feel let dow . Sorry MBC, but there are better beers for my money. But I will keep trying, hopefully one day something clicks.
Truthfully, I think I had a bad keg. This beer just wasnt good.
