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.

220z bomber served in a pub glass.
Pours amber with a light tan creamy head.Strong spicy ,piney aroma.Taste is bitter hops with some malt sweetness that balances nicely.the hops win out and dry it out as you swallow.
I thought the conditioning was great not too effevescent enough for a lasting head but smooth and not too bubbly.I thought it very well made and would buy it again (if it was available locally).

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.
