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

This to me is an IPA that stands out. Medium body, slightly fruity and not overly bitter, this is the type of IPA you could give to an amateur beer drinker and find them surprised to enjoy it or satisfy a seasoned BA.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a cuvee glass. Dated 8/14 on bottom of the can!
Formed a nice white 2 finger head, which dissipated after several minutes and left some fine lacing in the glass. Nice dark golden orange body, slightly hazy.
Smells of some pine and citrus and malts, smells very balanced, there isn't one dominating the other.
Has a nice bitterness on the tongue; orange pulp at first, nice bitterness in the middle and finishes dry with a light sweetness. Very easy to drink.
A nice lingering hop taste on the tongue.
Overall I would say this is a very good IPA, not mind blowing but still a very decent IPA, really happy to have had this one!! Nothing wrong with this beer at all.
Another gift from goingbrokeonbeer, thanks again bruh!
