Notes / Commercial Description:
This gold colored West Coast style Double India Pale Ale has an intense hop nose, with aromas mainly of citrus. The high hop character dominates this IPA’s flavor profile. Made with American long grain rice, it is quite difficult to make but the rice contributes to this beer’s crisp aftertaste.

A- Light yellow, very clear. Little to no head.

S- Citrus dominates, grapefruit, lemon. Clean and fresh.

T- Again citrus throughout. Piney resins come out from underneath. Then a warm hop aftertaste that has staying power. Love it!

M- Smooth crisp and refreshing. Well done.

O- Wonderful hoppy IPA. Easy to drink, for an IPA. Huge citrus notes throughout are favorable to my pallet. Very good/ exceptional beer.

Bought at The Beer Baron in Burton MI. $18.00 for a 64oz growler. Poured first rate with a tube and fresh cap and tape.

A- Lovely golden colour. As typical for a growler that has been bounced around a bit there wasn't much crack to the cap nor foam however I am rating it based upon what I tasted in the bar.

S- Hoppy good! So airy and light at the same time, interesting

T- WOW this one is dry and hoppy. So refreshing. Can't even find the 9.5% at the beginning. Extra hops, extra goodness.

M- Dry, dry, dry. The rice dryness just shines through

O- Excellent! Will try again when I see it

Overall an excellent IPA!

Sorry, no food match on this one :(

Thx for reading
