Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: DaveAnderson on 08-29-2013

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.

Smooth nose of lightly herbal hops, with a ribbon of tangerines and grapefruit. Maybe a bit of resin, this has a note of mystery that I presume to be smoke.

The flavor is very light and airy but flavorful. The hops are strong, mostly herbal tones, but it has a resiny flavor without being overly bitter. The fruit taste is more nectarines or tangerines, with little of the acrid grapefruit. All the while there's a bit of flavor that's hard to put a finger or a taste bud on. I can only assume it's the smoked aspect that leaves this to be just a bit different.

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.
