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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Lighter shade of yellow. Maybe a hint of orange. Forms a moderate sized fluffy white head. Excellent retention. Lots of lacing.

S: Aroma isn't strong, but it is pleasant. Hop forward. Mostly citrus, orange. A little grapefruit and light sweetness.

T: Taste is also pleasant. Simple and clean. Light pale malt backbone. Mild sweetness. Lots of citrus, especially orange. Mandarin and orange blossom. Quick finish.

M: On the lighter side of medium in body. Medium carbonation. Moderate bitterness.

O: A very nice go-to IPA. Pleasantly flavorful, but not overwhelming.
