Notes/Commercial Description:
An India Pale Ale - gets its golden copper color from the light caramel malts, which provide a solid backbone to the support all the great hops. This beer presents with an overwhelming citrus aroma that leads into an unmistakable flavor of grapefruit. Hop Slinger leaves you with a nice dry bitterness that pairs well with spicy curries, salty fried foods and ginger based desserts.

Found this in the back of a general store in North Conway NH. Never heard of Henniker Brewing or Henniker NH before but according to their website that's pretty common and the way they like it.

Dark orangey gold color with a slushy, thick head. Very sticky.

Smells like grapefruit and caramel. Sharp pine when I opened the bottle softens in my glass.

Tastes like grapefruit and plenty of sweet caramel malt. Big bitter isn't enough to combat the overpowering caramel malts.

Eh. Makes me think of a bigger SA Lattitude 48.
