Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

Notes / Commercial Description:
This medium bodied American style IPA has an alluring golden glow and beautifully blends three strains of hops. While strong citrus notes ambush your taste buds halfway through the palate, the beer finishes very crisp and dry.

Unfiltered, cloudy look. Strong hops, not to much citrus.

On tap at Mountain View Inn.
I wanted to like this but it was not so great for a few reasons:
- mouthfeel is too thick, sticky.
- hops were pretty much like Simcoe, think DFA60, but not so well refined

Over-rated for sure.
