Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: danger79 on 04-21-2014

Our pioneering IPA is a free spirit who ventures off the well-worn trail. She scored our Brewmaster a Silver medal at the 2001 Great American Beer Festival, and this beauty has grown up a lot since then. Pouring hazy orange-amber with a wispy head, our flagship IPA has Cascade, Simcoe, and other American hops, and is double dry hopped with Citra hops. Go nose in and delight over aromas of pine resin and tangerine, tropical bursts of midevening sunshine. The flavor profile is full-bodied—citrus, grapefruit, caramel, orange peel, bitter but with sturdy malt support. Hoppalachia will take you to the peak of the mountains feeling like you have finally reached your goal! Welcome to the land of Pioneers.

A: The beer is clear orange amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that quickly died down, leaving a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass and delicate lacing on the surface in the center.
S: Light to moderate aromas of grapefruit hops are present in the nose along with hints of caramel malts.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste starts out with flavors of bitter grapefruit and oranges, but there are underlying notes of caramel malts. The hops contribute a moderate amount of bitterness. The bitter grapefruit flavors linger into the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA is nice if you like flavors of bitter grapefruit. The hops also deliver a nice bite of crispness to the mouthfeel.

A: Pours a very lightly hazy copper in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation and faint amounts of amber + honey orange highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense foamy beige head that slowly reduces to a very thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of citrus/grapefruit and citrus/grapefruit pith hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of caramel + grainy malts.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of slightly sweet caramel malts with a light amount of grainy malt flavors as well. That is followed by slightly stronger than moderate flavors of citrus/grapefruit and citrus/grapefruit pith hops with a light flavor of herbal hops. There is a light to moderate amount of bitterness which lingers through the finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Hints of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink though slightly sweet for an IPA. Enjoyable with nice hop aromas and flavors and well hidden alcohol. I'd definitely grab another one of these. (1,150 characters)
