Bottle: Poured a clear bright orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of fruity hops with clear grapefruit notes with light spicy edge. Taste is also dominated by some really great fruity hoppy notes with light caramel malt notes and some grapefruit notes. Bitterness is maintained at a low level which increased drinkability. Body is about average with good carbonation. I really enjoyed this one and I liked the fact that the bitterness level is toned down.

Its honey amber body is crystal clear. Just over a finger's worth of wispy white head quickly recedes after a steady pour. The ring it forms at the sides of the glass is made up of big bubbles. Webs of lace stick to the glass at random points.

A lively green peppery essence is the first thing to come through and is laced with a bit of spice. There's a distinct floral tea-like note to it as well that I can't put my finger on. It has an almost soapy quality to it. Outside of this interesting mix of flavours lies grassy hops with a syrupy tropical sweetness. It's unique for sure but lies more on the malty side of things.

You get the green pepper quality mixed with herbal leafy tea both at once. The bitterness that goes with it is leafy and raw; a little minty even. There's hints of citrus peel and tropical fruits in the corners of this but I find them hard to pull out. A sturdy malt backbone gives it a bit more sweetness and makes it harder for the hops to pull through.

The body is creamy with the hoppy bitterness helping to clean things up and dry everything out near the finish. It's smooth going down and its bitterness is unobtrusive when it comes to its drinkability.

In terms of the big, hop forward, abrasive American IPA's out there that have largely come to define the style, this one falls short. It's quite unique with its peppery tea-like flavours and I enjoyed it for that. In comparison to the other IPA's in Dunham's portfolio however, this one isn't a good indicator of what they're capable of producing.

Poured from a 12oz bottle, no #freshbeer info.

A nice light peach colored body with a 3 finger bubbly head. Some lacing and good retention. Smell is resiny hops, very fruity, soapy, slight spice. Spicy pepper a bit but lots of tropical fruit, very creamy and very smooth. Too strong on the malt for my liking as hops don't pierce through. I wouldn't have slapped American on the title because it doesn't fall into that cateogry. I dig the flavor though but don't expect a hoppy IPA.
