Be forewarned: One too many of these babies and you'll be seeing double! This traditional IPA is anything but what the name suggests. Bookended between a lush abundance of sweet malt and bitter hops, this fine American INDIA PALE ALE is made for (and approved by) serious beer drinkers! Our third and most recent bottled offering, it is available in stores throughout Connecticut. Brewed to a gravity of 18 Plato, it boasts an international menagerie of expensive hops, including CTZ, Zythos, East Kent Goldings, and, oddly enough, Czech Sazz. Our Brewmaster sazz you need to come in for a taste.

Pours a light orange color with a white head. The smell is full of hops with citrus and orange peel being very present in the scent. The taste was full of grapefruit and other citrus with some pine as well. Very well layered IPA and not overly aggressive. Would try again.

Usually low in cost for how delicious it is when done right, but the product is inconsistent from batch to batch.

Poured in my trusty Founders snifter.
A: golden orange color, inch of head, then I see the floaties! Like chunks! Disgusting looking! WTF! I've never seen a beer this bad!
S: very light typical ipa smell. nothing special.
T: Very nice, sweet, good balance of malts and hops. taste saves a drain pour
M: ok, smooth. not feeling the chunks.
O: I understand the this happens with some of the best beers, but the floaties are worse than even any home brew I've had. maybe a bad batch.
