We dry-hop this American Style India Pale Ale with seven grains and four domestic hop varieties by adding dry whole hops to the finishing tank so the beer rests "on top" of the hops for five extra days!Malty sweetness up front with big cascade and glacier hops in the finish -- a wonderfully drinkable IPA!

Very run of the mill IPA. IBU's at 66 but did not show in the beer.
It is ready drinking due to lack of taste.
If someone wants to learn to like ipa s this is a good starter....

A pretty standard fare IPA, nothing mind blowing here. Had it on tap, which probably helped. Enjoyable, but there are plenty of other stand outs to reach for before this one.

Would purchase again, if there was nothing else better there. Not seeking out though.

A half inch of frothy off white head is present. Brussels lacing. Amber golden colored with a light murkiness. Moderate citrus hop aroma is detectable. The citrus hop element is more prominent in the flavor and is nicely balanced with light malt. Light stickiness is apparent in the mouth. That gentle hop bite lingers nicely and beckons further sips.

Murky and ruddy, orange-brown in color. Slim head. Not a pretty beer. The flavor, however, is excellent. Balanced, assertive....intense hops and malt...wonderful cascade and pale malt smell. Some sweetness. Very drinkable.

The beer poured a copper, amber color with a thin, slightly off white head that disipated fairly quickly. The aroma is very malt forward with a strong caramel presence with a touch of citrusy orange. Little hop aroma for an IPA. The beer has a very upfront caramel and bready flavor. There is slight bitterness but much less than expected for the style. Carbonation is low and body is weak. and the finish is slightly dry.

Overall, it seems like the grain bill was the main focus when building this beer. The malt overpowers any existing hop profile. In my opinion, there's too much specialty malt in this IPA.
