Maine, United States
risingtidebrewing.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

Availability: Year-round

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.

A: Lighter shade of yellow. Maybe a hint of orange. Forms a moderate sized fluffy white head. Excellent retention. Lots of lacing.

S: Aroma isn't strong, but it is pleasant. Hop forward. Mostly citrus, orange. A little grapefruit and light sweetness.

T: Taste is also pleasant. Simple and clean. Light pale malt backbone. Mild sweetness. Lots of citrus, especially orange. Mandarin and orange blossom. Quick finish.

M: On the lighter side of medium in body. Medium carbonation. Moderate bitterness.

O: A very nice go-to IPA. Pleasantly flavorful, but not overwhelming.
