This seems to be a new recipe for the same beer that made its debut not that long ago using Cascade hops. Not sure why the change; maybe a continuously changing hop variety? Change of heart? Nothing noted on the website, other than that this is Municipal IPA. No word of its previous form.

L - hazed amber color with a creamy off-white head that slowly fades leaving some lacing
S - fresh floral, citric, earthy, piny hops - smells delicious. Caramel malt, bread, and toasted grain in there as well
T - bold flavors of pine, grapefruit pith, earth, caramel, bread crust, toasted grain
F - fuller bodied and creamy, finishes semi-dry with lingering pine; alcohol is hot at times, even though it's only 6.2% ABV
O - I really like this version, but will it be available indefinitely? Will the recipe change again? At least they do have parameters and a description on the bottle of what it is for future considerations. I would get this particular recipe again, but probably wouldn't venture out if the recipe changes a second time (at least without an explanation).
