Style: American IPA

Notes / Commercial Description:
Just like Single Malt Scotch, our Singlemalt I.P.A. is brewed from 100% Crisp Maris Otter floor-malted barley - no specialty malts, no blending. This is our interpretation of the American/NorthWest India Pale Ale style. Singlemalt I.P.A. is generously hopped with Northwest-grown Simcoe and Cascade hops. This is our best-selling and most-beloved beer and is golden in color, with a medium-bodied malty backbone and full of hop flavor.

Nice piney, resin type of IPA with a light citrus bite. Good medium mouthfeel.

On tap at Brewhouse Bar & Grille, Helena, MT. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a semi-hazy orange color with a bar pour’s kind of slim white head. Stringy smooth lacing stuck and then slid adequately into the beer. The smell had a huge burst of grapefruit up front with a light caramel underneath but balanced out as it warmed. The taste copied the smell and lead to a sweet to bitter grapefruit aftertaste and a semi-dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there and somewhat sharp but nothing overbearing. Good. Overall, I say this was a pretty good APA that I would have again.

Had a glass at the brewery. It's funny, the Cascade hops almost feel British for the spicy edge. But the beer is clean and richly flavors with peppery citrus rind. And frankly, as newer IPAs move toward more tropical and juicy flavors, this is a wonderful change of pace. It's expertly made and quite satisfying. Get yourself a pint.

This is a sought after brew in Montana's backwoods...folks will drive out of their way to find this IPA on draught. And I agree on why...it's a different animal from the usual PAC West hop line-up. The balance and richness take the edge off and provide a creamy mouthfeel that allows you to ease into the pint. Don't be fooled, though...the ABV creeps up on you, but leaves you smoothed around the edges
