Notes / Commercial Description:
What makes a great leader? First of all a perfectly balanced blend of qualities; the ability to stand out - be authoritative without overpowering. Show courage and endurance - you will lead the way and set standards. Very important; be appealing and refreshing to the people. This stereotypical portrait applies whether referring to politics, religion or maybe even this outstanding IPA.

330ml bottle

L - orange/brown, generally clear with very fine suspended particles, pours an off-white 1cm frothy head

S - freshly cut grass, tart fruits (grapefruit), and some stone fruit (apricot)

T - sweet malts, some honey, very fruity mid way through (passionfruit, apricots). Moderate bitterness towards the finish, fairly clean.

M - chewy in the middle, dry finish, well carbonated, alcohol is relatively muted.

O - reasonable, bitterness isn't the strongest for an american IPA, but nice enough. Why do scandanavian beers cost so much though???

Interesting IPA. If you handed it to me blind I'd have a bought it was an unfiltered pale or something. Just a different hop character than most IPAs

Pour from the bottle into an IPA appropriate glass. Frothy white head that lasted thru out the consumption of the beer, with excellent lacing. The body is a cloudy, golden color. Enticing but mild piney aroma, this brew clocks in at 7% abv. The first sip yields wonderful grapefruit and pineapple flavors, followed by a modest amount of bitterness. Deeelicious!
