BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Westbrook Brewing Co.
South Carolina, United States
westbrookbrewing.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.80%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Poured into a snifter. Mildly hazy golden straw color. Medium-sized white head with nice lacing. Bright aromas of citrus, grapefruit, and some earthy notes. A hint of bready malt but not much. Just "classic" (as in 2013) American IPA taste - a clean bitterness with orange, grapefruit, some piney resin, and understated malt. Well-balanced with a great feel.
