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.

Bomber bottle

Hazed medium apricot amber, looser light khaki head. Nice looking very fine bubble lacing left behind.

Grassy and citric hop nose.

Citrus with lots of lime and oranges. Mixed fruits with some more grassyness. Malty underbelly. Dry and hopped up finish. More then respectable IPA

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle dated 11.13.14. Sampled on February 13, 2015.

I like unfiltered beers that look unfiltered and this one does. The pour is a real milky, cloudy looking pale yellow leading up to a big, long-lasting foamy white head.

The aroma is more toward the grassy and floral side with a touch of toasted malts out back.

Medium body.

Like the aroma, I get a full grassy and floral hop character with just enough toasted biscuit to balance it out. But the emphasis is on the hops.
