Notes/Commercial Description:
Ken Hermann has taken our exploration of – and adoration for – the IPA style in a completely new direction. With notes of orange peel and coriander, the soft mouthfeel reminiscent of a Belgian wit, and the hop additions of Simcoe, Citra and Cascade, he strikes a delicate balance between two disparate styles while showcasing the characteristics of both. It’s a refreshing take on a new style, and we hope you enjoy it! Cheers.

Poured into a pint glass.

A- Pours a hazy straw-yellow color. Leaves about half a finger of head that dissipates quickly. Audible sizzle from carbonation.

S- Piney and resin with surprisingly intense citrusy aroma, primarily pineapple and orange. Slightly floral but just incredibly bright and complex all at the same time.

T- Hop bitterness up front with the pine and resin, finishes with strong pineapple and orange along with a subtle sweetness.

M- Light-bodied, very well-carbonated, and very refreshing. Everything you would want on a humid summer day.

O- Incredibly refreshing, bright, and drinkable. I am not a hop head and being only 45 IBUs this IPA is very approachable. If you aren't big on more hop-forward IPAs you have to give this one a try. Honestly, I don't understand why it's not rated even higher. Just a great beer.
