Notes/Commercial Description:
A blend of Bravo, Amarillo, Cascade, and Centennial hops give this beer a crisp, hoppy flavor. Dry hopping with Centennial gives this beer a beautiful aroma of citrus notes. Balanced but complex, this beer is a refreshing brew.

A - It's a light amber color. Poured a nice, thick tan head. As I drink it, there are the clear 'head lines' on the glass

S - Some heavy grape tones, some malt

T - Heavenly. Personally, this is my perfect IPA. As you sip it, you get a breath of the hops, but it has a malty, caramel taste. A clean, bittering fruity finish. Not overpowering bitter hop presence at all, but you still know it's there.

M - Clean, smooth for an IPA.

D - High. A great beer, would love to have this one on tap. Definitely recommend, even if you don't like IPAs.

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Murky gold with one finger of soapy off white head, a little spotty lacing
S - Caramel malt, orange juice an big grapefruit, some pine,
T - There is such a huge toasted nutty malt flavor to this its shocking. Some mild pine and grapefruit juice come through, its mildly hoppy.
M - Bitter a little soapy and chewy.
O - This should for sure be classified as an English IPA, the toasted nutty malt taste makes it feel like a brown ale, but its mildly hoppy. Nothing extravagant.
