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.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass

Pours a hazy, deep golden color. Small head without much lacing.

Smells a little malty, which is odd. Maybe even a little sour. Not a whole lot of citrus, but it is here.

Taste is pretty hop forward at first, but falls of and a slight maltiness takes over. Aftertaste of hops with a little sweetness. Not much hoppy citrus, which I think is odd for an American style IPA.

Nice feel on the mouth. A little thick and malty. Not as crisp or light as most IPAs.

Good beer. Easy to drink.
