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.

Bottle poured into an antique pilsner glass

Clear, golden yellow orange liquid with a stead stream of carbonation. First pour creates a one finger foam lid with great lacings.

A lot of great floral hop notes off of the aroma

Good rush of floral hoppiness. Floral hops on the tip and middle of the tongue. Bitter after taste.

Moderate carbonation on the sip. Smooth .

Very nice east coast styled west coast iPa

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.
