Notes/Commercial Description:
Our IPA is a session IPA, a smooth golden ale packed with the bold flavor and aroma of American hops. We crafted it in the spirit of the low gravity IPAs common in the UK where the style stands for hoppy, not heavy.

India Pale Ales (IPAs) 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 hops as a natural preservative. Today, the term IPA is used for many full flavored beers along a wide array of recipes.

Why is this so malty? It's severely malt forward with hints of hop spices as accents. Way out of balance. The malts are definitely the showcase here; gobs of them. An "okay" beer, but nothing worth revisiting for me personally. Some people might really like it.
