Our flagship beer, this is a decidedly hoppy, bitter, moderately strong American pale ale. We load it with Cascade hops that provde floral and citrus notes. This IPA emphasizes the hop aroma and flavor, while muting the hop bitterness.

32oz Boston Round growler from the brewery.

Hazed out pale copper hue, excellent lacing all around. Semi-brash citrus rind from Cascade hops, hint of mint and dry breadiness too boot. Smooth with a solid medium body from the sturdy malt backbone. Hearty hop bitterness has big citrus flavors of rind and pith, those flavors linger with a meeting of bread and faint yeast. The dry finish pushes me for another sip.

Loving this brew as it take you to another place rather than the usual paths of trendy IPAs.

Sampling a cold growler poured into a mug. Thanks for the hookup to my brother Curt. I actually visited the brewery in their early days before the tasting room was functional and was worried about how they made it through hurricane damage.
This IPA proves that they are doing A OK.
the beer pours a slightly hazy copper hue with a brown eggshell creamy head of about 1.5 cm.
The aroma is citrus and rindy hops with a good caramel backbone to balance the beer.
The first sip reveals a fine tingly carbonation that tickles my palate as I sample this beer. The body is average and drinks very easy.
Flavor is some caramel and toffee up front and then rolls to a good dose of rindy and grapefruit pith hops. The hops dry out the finish and leave a lingering bitterness.
I dont get any booze on this one, and find the beer enjoyable and dont have much problem polishing off the growler.
Next family vacation I know where I am going for growler fills.
