Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Jason on 09-11-2012

After 13 years of brewing excellence, we deemed it time to produce a year round IPA style. Because a well made, well balanced IPA is a work of art, we took our time with this one and added our own local spin onto it. First we needed a substantial malt backbone to not only create the 6.5% abv, but to compliment later lupulin additions. Heavy doses of Munich Malt and Cara malt help to add body, mouthfeel and a touch of sweetness. Canadian wheat malt also lends to the great foam and head retention. 5 different hops are added at 7 different times in this brew, and the majority of the massive, complicated, but delightful hop profile is derived from Columbus and Cascade hops from the kettle boil (bittering, flavor, and aroma additions). The real icing on this masterpiece, however, comes from literally searching the near and far: Brewmaster Derek Luke married Annie Sherman, a Kiwi citizen in late 2011, visiting New Zealand for their honeymoon. Upon return, Derek came back raving of the legendary Motueka hop. Craving to satiate the “near and far desire”, this hop is added in conjunction with Chinook hops grown right here in RI from Ocean State Hop farms during the lengthy dry hopping process. The result: A fantastic IPA 100% produced locally with local hops, yet worldly in its own right!

A: The beer is hazy orange yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high beige head that died down, leaving small patches of bubbles on the surface, a collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides.
S: Light to moderate aromas of pine resin are present in the nose along with notes of caramel malts.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of piney hops with notes of citrus hops and underlying caramel malts as well has hints of herbal hops. The hops contribute a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp and sticky on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is rather balanced between the malts and hops and tastes like an East Coast IPA. The hops lend lots of complexities to the aromas and flavors.
