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.

A- Slight haze on a pale orange body. Very thin white head that dissappears quickly.

S- Mandarian oranges, grapefruit, apricots, very fruity with a nice citrusy hop presence.

T- Very piney and bitter up front with the juicy fruit flavors coming through towards the middle. Finish lingers with juicy hops as well.

M- Smooth and crisp with medium carbonation and medium body.

O- Very nice IPA, that is very delicious and drinkable.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance- Pours a dark orange with two fingers of white foam. Recedes to a small foam on top that lingers and leaves good lacing.

Smell- Grapefruit and pine kicks you in the face as soon as you open the can. Very strong smell, very good.

Taste- Good malt backbone, hint of caramel. Again a good presence of grapefruit, citrus and pine. A bit more subdued than the smell but still pretty good. Good bitterness but is a bit unbalanced on the back end.

Mouthfeel- Both carbonation and mouthfeel were a bit on the light side.

Overall- Good IPA, very drinkable. Great smell and good taste to back it up.
