Notes/Commercial Description:
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!

look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Hazy orange in color with some leftover yeast settled at the bottom of the bottle. Head is minimal with large bubbles making it look more like soda than beer.

Smell is spicy and full of hoppy goodness thanks to the dry-hop conditioning process.

Taste starts out a bit sweet with a touch of honey flavor. Then the hops come in with a citrusy and soapy flavor. A bit of orange and lemon rind come to mind. Malt is biscuity and sweet. Though the hop flavor is powerful upfront, it is somewhat short-lived which is disappointing.

Light to medium-bodied and lighter than most IPAs I've tried. Finish is clean and a bit dry.

Goes down easy due to the lighter body and short-lived bitterness. Its a descent brew but sub-par for an IPA in my opinion.

Reviewed from notes taken 12/26/13.

I poured a thin, nearly white head over a light caramel colored body.

The nose has a very nice bouquet going. Caramel starts it off. Tropical fruit follows up, including mandarin oranges, mangoes and grapefruit. A hint of pine on the back end really fills it out.

Caramel and bread start up the beers taste. Mandarin orange and grapefruit move into a piney finish.

The body is rather weak. The carbonation is not there, and the beer seems watery.
