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: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

A: hazy, burnt orange; 1 finger head that receded over a couple minutes; minimal lacing;

S: distinct peach - unexpected and intriguing;

T: a bit of peach upfront; some pineapple crept in that lasted through the middle; the finish is red grapefruit; almost no bitterness;

M: seems a little syrupy, but that might be in my head from the peach nose; carbonation is a little light;

O: interesting and different; refreshing in a way I don't expect from an IPA; my scores are low because this didn't seem to fit the IPA category; as a fruit beer, this was nice; other reviews are quite different than mine, so I might have gotten an off bottle;

Deep golden pour, good clarity with a small half finger cap of tight white foam. Sloppy lacing coats the glass, quite a bit is slipping down towards the liquid.

Powerful aroma, you can smell it right out of the bottle. Vibrant splash of grapefruit and pineapple atop citrus and pine. Rather floral with underlying honey sweetness and mint.

Pale two row is slightly bready with a drop of honey sweetness. Tangerine and pine are turned on full bore with honeydew melon settling in near the finish. The hops are resiny and features overripe tropical juices. A bitter shock and alcohol but it isn't lasting.

Crisp and sharp body and carbonation. Doesn't feature alot of drying since the character of this beer is juicy. Some rising alcohol.

This is a very good IPA, juicy, floral and variant. Very crisp and bright, wish I had a few more of these.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

A: This poured clear gold with a bit of white head.
S: It smelled like mango and pine, with some wild honey malt.
T: It tasted like pine and dank herbal hops, with some unripe mango. It had a clean bitter aftertaste.
M: It was watery with moderate carbonation. Fairly light body.
D: This was a solid west coast IPA, with simple but clean scent and taste. The body was weak, but the finish was smooth, so it was easy to drink. Enjoyable brew.
