Style: American IPA

Notes / Commercial Description:
A base of pale, Munich, and Carapils malts is just enough to contain the massive hop flavor and aroma packed into this highly drinkable IPA. A blend of four American hop varieties is added four times in the kettle and twice in the fermentor for a complex and layered hop experience. Best served at 45-50˚F in a tulip or English style pint glass.

It pours golden and with a fairly big and persistent head. The aroma is mild but with notes of pine and resin. Lots of nice supporting malt sweetness and a nice lingering piney bitterness.

Pours a clear gold with a ton of larger dots of sediment in suspension, fluffy two fingers worth of foam that slowly settles to a thin cap, trails a few thin rings of lace down the glass. Smell: lemon rind and pine upfront, moderately floral, with dried apricot, orange marmalade, and a little wholegrain biscuit playing backup. Taste: orange and lemon peel, astringent pine; fades into apricot, more citrus rind, herbal and grassy bitterness. Medium-plus bodied, creamy carbonation... a little overly sweet, but the bitterness shines through at the end. Decent C-hop IPA. 3-4 week old can.

Pours a clear light orange with fine, soapy foam.

Smell is piney and citrusy with some sweet malt in the back.

Taste is very balanced, with a solid malt base carrying a nice floral hop bite together with a bunch of pine.

Mouthfeel is medium and sticky. Well carbonated.

Overall, a very balanced IPA, everything just works well togehther.

Pour beer on a Spiegelau IPA Beer Glass. Very nice cloudy haze yellowish/orange color. Could see some some goodness on the cloudy haze. Nice hop smell and a white head foam about 2 inches high buy slowly went away to a white ring around the top of the glass. Take a sip and nice likely bitterness taste and wow goodness very good IPA beer. I have many good to wow IPA beers and I personally rate this beer an 8 out of 10. Definitely a good IPA to pair with red meats.

Hazy in color, hoppy in nose and taste. This is a legit IPA that has an above average flavor. Smooth and drinkable with very little kick of the AbV. Get it and drink it!

A: A hazy yellow in color, with a white head.

S: Fairly malty smelling at first. Malt with some straw or hay, and a touch of herbal hops, with a hint of citrus.

T: More malt with straw flavor, and light bitterness with some herbal, and pine flavors with a touch of grapefruit. .

M: Medium in body, carbonation is moderate to high with a little bit of a bitter cling.

O: Overall I was expecting a little bit more. Not bad, but not full of the hop flavor I was looking for.
