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: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a slightly cloudy copper color. Rocky off white foam that persists and after a little while reduces to a froth. There is no carbonation to speak of.

Smell: Very herbal with big, bold piney hops

Taste: Piney hops, apples and some kind of fruity aroma.

Mouth Feel: Medium bodied, slick and smooth with a long, hoppy finish

Overall: This was a very satisfying beer that you should enjoy over a period of time. Don't just guzzle this one down. Enjoy it.
