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.

Had this on tap in Birmingham. Rather dank and mildly bitter with those being the only notes. No real presence of pine/grass/tropical fruits that I value most in a IPA. I'll think of this as like Enjoy By's little bro.

Look - 12 oz can into a tulip. Pours a burnt orange (think Texas Longhorns). Nice head that fades to excellent lacing and minimal head retention.

Smell - Nice grapefruit hop bouquet, I get some bread on the nose as well.

Taste - Great bitter hops, flowery and grapefruity. Very much the American IPA. No complaints.

Feel - Smooth and crisp. The hop bitterness lingers nicely.

Overall - very solid IPA. I have had better and I have had worse, but you can't go wrong with this. Top end of the spectrum.
