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.

Pour is transparent golden in color with a tight white head. Nose has a bit of slightly stale grain up front, a touch doughy, and moderate malt sweetness. Hops are herbal with a decent amount of citrus. Taste is a bit doughier and sweeter. Some stale grain, pungent sticky caramel malt, chewy feel, lots of fleshy orange citrus hop in back with low bitterness.

The beer pours some very white and fluffy head that takes a while to dissipate. The beer itself is a clear orange color. The beer smell is very citrus and orange. The hops are fairly strong, and with a slight hint of resin. The beer also has a slight sweetness to it. The beer taste is a bit different than the smell. The taste has a grassier taste with a sweet orange flavor.

The mouthfeel is unusually thick for an IPA, but is still medium bodied. Biting carbonation. Overall, a pretty good beer and easy extremely easy to drink. It's not a hop bomb by any definition, but certainly enjoyable.
