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.

Faint sandy head is the only thing holding in this colorfully orange and gold bomb.

Mighty tropical fruit is the lead on this one - largely pineapple and mango. It's big in the nose, fresh and inviting.

A biting bomb, with a full array of fruity hops like those on the nose, coupled with an undercurrent of pine greenery and muted caramelized malts. Nothing subtle about it.

Smooth, disarming, with just enough crispness to keep the hops to the fore.

I really like this beer, but the alcohol is so well hidden that it creeps on you after a few - you don't expect it until it has already caught up with you.
