Notes / Commercial Description:
The Battlefield IPA is a new twist on an American India Pale Ale. Our master blend of west coast hops and the finest American and European malt distinguishes itself from many IPAs on the battlefield. A hoppy citrus and floral nose invites you to experience the perfectly balanced IPA. The natural bouquet of our hop blend and malt gives this IPA a victory all its own. You will agree the battle has been won when you reward yourself with our outstanding spin on the IPA.

2 month old can poured to YETI.
Golden amber with thick, off white head.
Light on the nose. Floral hops, light pine, rich malt.
Tastes great. Not specifically fruity, piney, or bitter, but a great balance of them all.
A good IPA.

I'm very impressed with this beer. Has a hint of piney notes with some citrus an floral notes as well. Fairly standard for a strong American IPA, but the piney flavors really balance out the bitterness and make it a great beer.

Appearance is clear light gold with white cap and moderate lacing.

Aroma is mostly piney hops with a sharp character.

Taste is hop forward with the full impact maintained to the finish. Some residual hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Malt character is present but remains behind and below the hops.

Overall this is a competent though unremarkable IPA.

Pours a light golden Amber with an ample white head.

In the nose is big citrus with some piney hops and a nice floral bouquet.

Taste is bitter citrus - grapefruit - and piney hops. It rounds to slight malt backbone with biscuit notes. A very solid IPA.

Poured from the can into a pint glass. The appearance is a slightly cloudy golden amber with a medium sized white head. The aroma is full of citrus and piney hops. The taste matches the aroma.
