Named for the street that the Café is located on. (isn't served at the brewery as far as I know)

Pours beautifully. Nice clouded orange-ish with a good off-white head. Citrusy nose. Flavor is extremely well balanced. The citrus and the bitter really combine to work well. Again. Balance is the key here. This is bordering on exquisite here. Mr. Brewmaster, sir. I tip my hat to you. And my glass.

A foggy deep amber brew, an off-white head leaving some lacing.

The hopps are predominant, grape-fruit and lemon, pine and wet newly mowed grass.

The taste is well balanced, sweet biscuits, pink grape-fruit, pine resin, and lots of long bitter goodies

Little carbonation, very refreshing and smooth.

A very well balanced IPA, a good thirst quencher.

A: Pours very cloudy amber with a small tan head that leaves only poor lacings.

S: Rich American hops, both floral and bitter; grapefruit, pineapple and lemon. Grassy. The malt is way in the back.

T: The malt is a bit stronger than in the smell, semi-sweet and bready, slightly roasted. Rich piney and citric notes from the hops.

M: Long and very bitter aftertaste - nice. Body is medium while carbonation on the milder side.

O: A nice AIPA, try it if you can get your hands on a sample!
