Notes/Commercial Description:
In Montana, many classic memories are made right after someone says, “Hold my beer and watch this.” These bold, assertive moments deserve a bold, assertive beer – Big Sky IPA. A distinct hop presence and malty backbone will leave you refreshed and ready for your moment of glory. Hang on tight and enjoy the ride.

Pretty solid, but there are just better IPAs out there. But this one is worth a try at least once!

Appearance:
Deep amber-gold color, clear. Lots of carbonation rising. Thick off-white rocky head.

Aroma:
Citrus, floral, fruity, a little pine, sweet caramel malts.

Taste/Finish/Body:
Lots of floral hops up front, citrus, herbal, a little piney. Deep malt background, sweet, toasted, caramel, hint of nutty. Finish is dry, semi-crisp. Medium bodied, smooth, dry, a little refreshing.

Overall:
It's an excellent American IPA.
