Notes/Commercial Description:
This medal winning India Pale Ale is brewed in the true Northwest fashion. It has an intense hop flavor and aroma, with a dry bitter finish. It defintely has enough hops to “send you over the edge.”

Appearance - Brilliant orange to light amber, hazed over, persistent head, big time sticky lacing. Very nice look.

Aroma - Really big fruity nose, stone fruits, sweet and piney, citrus pith and rind, some toasty sweet malts

Feel/Taste - Super smooth carb and feel, medium body. Taste is remarkably well balanced for a west coast IPA, yet ridiculously hoppy at the same time. Like the nose: stone fruits, citrus pith and peel, and pine resin hops pack a quite bitter punch; hops stick and linger for a long time. Providing some much needed balance are lightly sweet, toasty, caramel malts. Resin bitterness lingers on and on.

Overall - Really nice IPA, but you'd better be game for a bitter, hoppy punch in the mouth. I'm somewhat of a hop-head, and I even found it quite bitter. Thank goodness for that smooth, slightly sweet malt backbone! Good show, Sockeye!
