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.

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.
