Brewed as a traditional IPA, our organic IPA is bright copper in color. Balanced with a crisp hoppy flavor and light malt background, it features floral and citrus aroma of Pacific Northwest organic hops.

Acquired from optimator13 so a big “Thank You” goes out to him. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light golden brown color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, a good amount of floral hops and some citrus.

T: The taste starts out sweeter than most beers in the style with flavors of caramel, honey and citrus. Then a hearty malt character is hearty but not too heavy. The hops presence is decent for the style and brings some balance. The after-taste is sweet.

M: Smooth and a little crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, decent representation of style, it’s a solid beer but there are other EIPA’s that I would pick first.

Bottle from Total Wine. Medium amber with small foamy head. Malty aroma and taste, low key hops provide a small bitter bite, but nice caramel malts are what this brew us all about.

Long lasting, creamy, off-white head. Medium amber look. Very faint, medium light toasted malt and herbal citrus peel aroma. Medium creamy mouthfeel, with a little hop bite. Somewhat subtle, grapefruit and citrus peel, hop bit and flavor, with a moderate amount of medium toasted malt.

Nov. 2015: 355 ml bottle, from the Danish importer. ABV is 7.2%. Deep golden to orange colour, moderate white head. Aroma of stale orange marmalade and hops. Hoppy flavour, piney and grapefruity notes. Reasonably bitter finish.

12 oz. can. Pours and looks like a Stone IPA. High carbonation.

Heavily malted with sweet notes of caramel as well as a tangy, dank woody flavor.

Earthy aftertaste.

With so many lighter bodied IPA's out there, this one is an overweight treat.

The first review (7/24/20) in almost three years? Bottle was undated, bought in Eureka, not far from the source, so we expect it’s fresh. Nice looking light amber pour, frothy head, tight lacing. A little more malt forward than your usual West Coast IPA. A balanced bitterness without a dominant taste bias. It’s ok, seems a bit dated in its makeup.
