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.

33cl can. Pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head. Smells of lemon zest and honey. Tastes like lemon zest, green hops, unripe tropical fruit. Medium bodied with a low carbonation and a bitter aftertaste.

A twelve ounce can dated 09/06/16 poured in a 12oz. snifter tulip.

Look- Pours a cloudy but brilliant and lively pale yellow with two fingers of creamy white lingering foam. A small amount of lacing is left behind.

Smell- Grapefruit, orange zest, some pine and malt.

Taste- Grapefruit, floral, lemongrass a bit of pine and a balanced dose of malt sweetness to finish it out.

Feel- Slick and creamy with a pleasant bite from the hops.

Overall- While it's more balanced than many of the juice bombs that are taking over the IPA scene, this beer holds it's own for the style. A wonderful palate pleasing array of citrus/floral with a creamy malt feel and finish. Very flavorful and easy drinking for sure! This is definitely worth a try for IPA lovers.
