Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: jlindros on 12-24-2012

Though originally brewed as a "Christmas" beer, this piney IPA, brewed almost exclusively Chinook hops, was so enjoyable we decided to put it into the 'year round' rotation. With it's golden yellow color, rich aroma, and drying body, it's hard to stop drinking this one.

Pours a beautiful hazy golden beer with a head that dissipates into really attractive wisps. leaves a nice lacing on the glass.

Smells amazing. Really upfront piney mango aromas. You can pick up on some other citrus and grapefruit but the mango overwhelms.

The taste comes off a bit more piney than the nose. Almost with a clean minty flavor. The mango is still pretty upfront and noticeable. It has a lot of hop bitterness as expected but this is so much more balanced than most IPA's Im used to.

Mouthfeel is a medium body, perfect for the style. low-moderate carbonation which suits the style perfectly.

This is one of the best IPAs I have ever had. Really Incredible. The balance between pine and mango and between the sweetness and the bitter hops is perfect. This is a must have. This beer is really changing the way I think of an IPA. (847 characters)

A: Darker shade of orange with a nice foamy, white head.
S: Cinnamon like spiciness, peach, papaya, mango, very tropical with some notes of pine.
T: Similar to the nose, earthy spiciness, nice peach backbone with some notes of melon and pineapple with some strong pine like bitterness.
M: Very balanced especially with a nice layer of malty sweetness to it. Has a mild hop kick to it. Medium carbonation/medium body.
O: Not as good as Green or Julius, but on par as far as being a well balanced IPA…well done TH, you rule!! (526 characters)

750 mL bottle poured into a taster. Growler dated 9/28/2013.

Appearance - Hazy and pretty pale. Golden orange. Nice lacing.

Taste - Orange citrus hop. Not an overwhelming hop flavor, but pleasant. Sweet malt. Pale malts. Medium bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Balanced is an appropriate word. Medium carbonation.

Overall - It's sweet but I don't seem to mind. Hoppy enough to keep me happy. (400 characters)
