Notes/Commercial Description:
Heady like the sweet breath of Zephyrus, our India pale ale is redolent of citrus, apples, and pears, balanced by a touch of caramel. We use malted barley grown by local farmers and add a special blend of Cascade, Centennial, and Calypso hops to create this juicy, hoppy ale.

3.6/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

22 oz bottle was poured into an imperial pint glass.

Appearance: The beer is a copper amber color with some clarity and lots of bubbles coming up through the glass. It poured a frothy one finger head that has reduced to half the size. There was some lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: bready and caramel malts followed by tangerine and grapefruit citrus heaven.

Taste: Lots of citrus, spiciness, some pine, lingering bitterness, bready and caramel malts too.

Mouthfeel: smooth, medium to high carbonation, medium bodied, a little bitterness, and easy to drink.

Overall: A nice IPA from Portland, ME. Good to see an east coast brewery dabble with west coast styles. Alcohol is hidden well and there has a nice citrus and spicy taste to it too.

Serving type: bottle
