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!

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.
