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!

Too bitter for my taste. Or maybe just not enough sweetness to balance it.

Solid IPA, nice hoppy piney taste to it that lingers.
