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.

Appearance- Copperish-amber colored, very thin head

Smell- Earthy, vegetal

Taste- Bitter, very metallic coppery taste

Mouthfeel- Overcabonated, prickly and astringent. Really not good.

Overall- Not at all what I look for in an IPA. Pretty much the opposite of what I think the style should be. Poorly done.

Maybe it's the summit hops, but I just don't like the taste of this brew. Dank is a good description for the hops. Not a lot going on here besides the grapefruit like bitterness. I bought a 12 pack and it's a bit of a chore to drink. Suffice to say, a 12 pack is enough to satisfy my curiosity of the brew.
