American IPA |  7.00% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Bursting with Centennial hops and a higher than average malt bill for an IPA, this one is fully attenuated for dryness and boasts a distinct cherry smoke flavor on the back end. Like Surtr's Flame consuming the world in fire after the final Battle of Ragnarok, its color is burnt amber. All Year Long, Kegs Only.

12-oz tulip at the brewery.

First impression is good. It has a billowing head and dark amber hue. I find the smoke confusing on the nose, however. It really fights with the hops, which are primarily Centennial. It's a confusing smell. The taste is much brighter and reveals more citrus than I expect, and considerably maltier. Bitterness is strong and lingering.

I would have really enjoyed this IPA without the malt. As it is, it's merely pretty good.
