Notes / Commercial Description:
Our west coast India Pale Ale. Brewed with huge doses of hops (almost 20 lbs. per batch). This beer features loads of piney, citrusy, hoppy flavors and aromas. Floral and grapefruit notes throughout. This bronze colored beauty is highly recommended by the brewer.

Had as part of their tasters rack at the brewpub.

Appearance: Pours a clear copper color.

Smell: This was surprising. Almost no hops in the aroma. A lot of caramel malt, but no hops to speak of.

Taste: Ah, there they are. There are the hops. This is a classic example of a hop bomb. There were some complex flavors here, but they were hard to pick out.

Mouthfeel: Lightly carbonated, very dry at the end.

They stated on the menu, almost bragging, that they used 20 lbs of hops for this beer. Clearly too much. Expecially with the aroma, it really sneaks up on a guy. An okay IPA, but I don't think I will order a full pint.
