Notes/Commercial Description:
Finally an American IPA from us. This beautiful red-orange ale has a full malty body balanced by a fruity apricot/grapefruit nose. Mounds of dank Summit hops in the whirlpool and dry-hop additions provide a delicious finish to this East meets West-coast ale.

3.6/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a clear amber with a creamy, thin off-white head.

S: Delicate aromas of biscuit, caramel, cream, and crackers are met by scents of herbs, grass, lemon rind, lime zest, kumquats, bitter orange, pine, spruce, and cedar.

T: Notes of lemon rind, lime zest, bitter orange, kumquats, pungent herbs, grass, pine, spruce, cedar, and minerals are subtly supported by cream, cracker, biscuit, and caramel notes. The finish is shorter than expected, displaying a clear balance of caramel, biscuit, cracker, cedar, herb, and bitter citrus flavors.

M: On the heavier side of medium, oddly dry, and more than a bit chalky in the mouth. Carbonation is incredibly forceful and never really seems to calm no matter how long the beer is held in the mouth. A bit of a challenge to polish off this bottle.

O: This is an interesting IPA, but I am not sure I can be moved to call it a good example of the style. It kind of straddles the fence between English and American versions of the style, and though it is not bad, it does not really capture the best aspects of either.
