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!

12oz Can canned on 05/23/2014 poured into a Becker pint glass

Appearance: Pours a hazy, copper amber with 1 finger of head

Smell: Piney and citrus hops

Taste: Bright and citrus notes up front with the bitter in the middle with a mix of pine resin and caramel malt in the finish

Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation and slightly resiny

Overall: A solid American-style IPA with some bright citrus hop flavor. This is my first beer from this brewery and I'm excited to try more of SanTan's offerings. Hopefully in the future I can find a really fresh can of this IPA. Considering it was three months old, it has stood up very well.
