Notes / Commercial Description:
Warm copper amber in color, SanTan brewers have re-defined this classic English Ale. An intense bitterness derived from the distinct citrus/pine flavor of Pacific Northwest Hops. A dry, crisp malt character & aggressive alcohol dominate our I.P.A. and make this bitter beer a hop-head’s passion!

On draft at Sky Harbor terminal C / sir Veza. Served in a red solo cup. A soft feel belies the sharp alcohol. This airport find made the day!

Acquiring my taste for IPA's and this is a nice, crisp beer with just the right amount of bitter hops. Pine and citrus hit the nose and finishes bitter but with a slight sweetness that makes a this tolerable IPA. Hazy amber pour with a nice foamy head. Strong, solid--support your local/regional brewery!

Deep amber with fine white persistent lacing. Subdued citrus aroma. Hop flavor hits first, piney & bitter. Finishes astringent with lingering piney flavor. Good mouthfeel, not too thin or syrupy. Overall a good example of the style.
