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.

Rising tide zephyr

A - pours a hazy amber which starts as a dark red up top but slowly gets lighter with more hints of yellow toward the bottom. An impressively thick head of foam bubbles up quickly. Saying it is mousse-like would be an understatement. Great retention as well.

S - the aroma is muted. Notes of grapefruit, lemon zest and pine blend with a sweet caramel malt profile.

T - strong malt profile. Notes of gooey caramel and nutty flavors. Intense hop bitterness cuts through with notes of bitter orange peel. The fruity notes enter mid palate with flavors of oranges, white peaches, and lemon pith. Finish is fairly clean with just a tinge of bitterness.

M - medium verging on full bodied. High creamy scrubbing bubbles.

O - a nice east coast ipa. While not my favorite interoperation of the style it was still a pleasant drink.

Poured into an over sized wine glass. Color was a darker golden amber, with a dirty white 1/4 inch head. Fair amount of carbonation rising up as well. Aroma was a fruity citrus, lemon or grapefruit with just a hint of pine. Flavor was hoppy pine up front, but mellowed to a tangy sweet. Ok in the mouth, a bit thin, and head a bit over bubbly. Overall, not bad. A nice well balanced IPA. Not too weak, and not to overpowering.
