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.

This beer is dark orange, really veering well into red territory when held to the light, in a body that looks hazy but shows itself to be clear when that light comes through. A good, solid, nearly medium brown head is steady and constant. Lacing clings well to the glass from top to bottom.
There's lots going on in the nose. This beer takes an almost rustic, fresh, hoppy but well-balanced approach to the style with a complex conglomeration of nut, earth, herb, leaf, and citrus zest backed by a bit of fruits and a strong yeast element.
The taste starts off bitter and threatens to get chalky before malts kick in and balance it out. Then it's big, fresh raw grapefruit. It's just as green as the aroma, big leaf coming through all the way though it's evened out just enough by malts with a heavily earthy tone and a sort of semi-sweetness.
A sort of herbal and leafy feel keeps this beer's medium body dry but still smooth as crispness stays strong.
