Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: thagr81us on 01-04-2011

A base of pale, Munich, and Carapils malts is just enough to contain the massive hop flavor and aroma packed into this highly drinkable IPA. A blend of four American hop varieties is added four times in the kettle and twice in the fermentor for a complex and layered hop experience. Best served at 45-50˚F in a tulip or English style pint glass.

A little more malt than hop. Good balance. I will drink more when in SC.

Poured from a can into a Tank 7 tulip. Nice pale gold color. Hazy. Solid two fingers of creamy white head. Good retention. Lemons, grapefruit, pineapple, and toast with marmalade on the nose.

Medium-light body. Smooth, firm feel. Typical hop-forward flavor. Slight bready malt up front, then marmalade, lemon rind, dry herbs, and grapefruit juice. Fairly well-balanced, but still a bit abrasive on the palate. Lingering oily, resin-like hop flavor.

Overall, a good IPA, but I wish it was a little better balanced with more of a fruity bitterness instead. If I drank this one repeatedly, I bet the flavor would really grow on me.

A real go to IPA and as close to the standard of the American style as it gets IMO. Very solid.

Clean finish on a delicious, crisp and balanced IPA. Wouldn't classify as "East Coast" or "West Coast" style at all. Rather, just a very good, hop-forward beer that manages to present a bunch of different characteristics without being over-bearing on any of them. Well done!

Nice balance of friendly and interesting. Color quite yellow green, perfect for Spring!

Solid brew from Westbrook! Glad they made their way into NC. Mouthfeel is almost like an imperial IPA, very clean and pleasant bitterness. And lots of citrus, pine and slight malt on the backbone. I dig this one. Well done
