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

Killer IPA. Poured with a huge thick, slow to settle, cream colored head with lots of lace and a clear amber color. Aroma is malt and lots of fresh hops. Flavor is mainly hops with just enough malt sweetness and carbonic tang to make it all work as a traditional IPA. Excellent body. Can drink the bejesus out of this

Poured from 12 oz can dated 8/19/2014 into tulip.

A: Pours a cloudy sunshine yellow with two finger dense white head with decent retention and plenty of spotty lacing.

S: Bright citrus with pineapple and grapefruit. Pine straw and floral hops.

T: Big hop punch with a nice malt back bone. Citrus is less noticeable in flavor than in aroma.

M: Medium bodied and nicely carbonated. The finish has a nice hop bite and leaves a slight bitter after taste.

O: Well executed basic IPA. Easy drinking and enjoyable. Hoping to find a fresh batch to compare.
