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

12 oz can, dated 2/27/14. Pours hazy golden orange with a huge frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet fruity candy with some resiny hops and a little garlic.

The flavor is sweet fruity candy with resiny garlic hops. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, kind of an odd mix of fruity candy and garlic hops.

Finally bought this beer after passing on it several times. I thought this was a very good ipa. Poured from a 12 oz can and pours a nice, caramel/golden color with a decent size head.

Smell is good not great...Taste is pretty awesome. Definitely has some citrus notes and flavors that are pretty well balanced. I will be buying this beer again for sure

4.01/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a willibecher. This was canned on 02/27/14.

Appearance: Pours a very hazy, medium amber and leaves a 2 finger, very sticky, white head that lingers for a long while before leaving a puffy layer atop the beer, leaving a lot of lacing.

Smell: Resin out first, followed by some citrus notes, citrus rinds, malts, a hint of pepper. Nice, subtle aroma.

Taste: Matches the smell really well. Resin, hint of pine, citrus, citrus rinds, malts. Tasty, well balanced and mild. ABV is well hidden.

Mouth-feel: Medium carbonation with a medium, creamy body. Finishes smooth.

Overall: This is a very easy drinking, well balanced IPA. I have a feeling that if this were a bit fresher it would be more hop dominant. The hops and malts are very balanced in this one, and it goes down very easy.
