Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our American IPA gets its bold hop flavor from 100% American hops and its deep gold and full body from pale and crystal malted barley. A blend of Amarillo, Centennial and Simcoe hop varietals imparts AIPA with bitterness and prominent aromas of citrus and fruit. Our brewers select these hops on an annual pilgrimage to the hop farms of Pacific Northwest.

IPAs (India Pale Ales) were first brewed in England during the late 1700s for export overseas to British soldiers in India. To keep their beer from spoiling during the long voyage, English brewers fortified their traditional pale ale recipes with natural preservatives: more malted barley, for a higher alcohol content, and more hops. In recent decades, with growing appreciation for highly hopped beers, American craft brewers have revived the style, embraced it, and incorporated new hop varieties. Our Special Release IPAs further those traditions and showcase the distinctions of hops from different hemispheres.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

a nice clean copper pour with 2 fingers of white detergent-like head. smells of herbal/grassy hops and a lot of bready notes! REALLY hoppy scents coming from this one, like fresh cut grass. the flavor is mouth blasting hops! an extremely powerful blast of strong bittering hops combined with very herbal like hops balancing out the bitterness. the grain bill's there to help out as well, but nothing outstanding in that department, more just a backbone than anything. medium body, medium carbonation, nice and creamy on the lips but leaves a sticky feel behind!

a really nice ipa for someone looking for a different kind of "hop bomb". very herbal and grassy, i like it.
