American IPA |  6.80% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

65 IBU

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Tons of carbonation shooting up the glass, 2 fingers of head with great retention, murky orange pour.
Aroma of slight citrus, grapefruit, a bit of plastic? Hmm.. Hopefully the taste isn't as off..
Ok no plastic flavor.. Just a lot of herbal bitterness and some caramel malt. Nothing outstanding with this one.
Medium in body with high carbonation.

This is a decent ipa and I'm glad to try it but I wouldn't seek it out again.

3.83/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12oz can, no canning date (marked "- - -" on the bottom), poured into a Darkness goblet 7/20/2014.

A- Hazy light copper body with a one finger white head with fair retention time. Drops into a medium sized collar and leaves bits and pieces of lacing.

S- Pineapple, citrus, green hops, a bit of toffee and bread. Smells like a beer that's just been put into the primary fermenting vessel, in that it's "green" in a good way.

F- A bit of floral notes up front, some bread and toffee in the middle, with a bit of pine and a non-descript bitterness on the backend, perhaps pineapple. Not super bitter, but quite good.

M- Medium in body, a bit creamy, neither dry nor resinous. Drinks very easily.

O- It's a solid IPA. Nothing pops about it, but the profile is fairly unique in that it smells like a green beer. Perhaps thats why the can is green.
