Notes / Commercial Description:
Heady like the sweet breath of Zephyrus, our India pale ale is redolent of citrus, apples, and pears, balanced by a touch of caramel. We use malted barley grown by local farmers and add a special blend of Cascade, Centennial, and Calypso hops to create this juicy, hoppy ale.

on tap it has a bright golden look, honey colored and clear, with an inch or so of soft white head as pure as can be. the aroma is orchard fruit and juicy hops, while the grain character seems minimal. the taste is similar, although the barley malt adds some faint toasted bread notes, pine nutty almost too, but the hops may contribute to that some. less citrus and a whole lot more apple and peary as I sip on it. bitterness is only average, which lends to drinkability. I was wanting this one to be a little more distinct, more unique to itself, but it gets lost in the crowd a little I think, fails to stand out despite being of utmost quality. cascade hops just seem a little played out right now, no matter how good the recipe.
