Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Rare are moments of truth, when you've struck the last match, belting out tunes with your friends, staring deep into the campfire-times when you feel infinite. Our truth is found in the scintillating brilliance of hops. Brewed with a nod to the pacific, hops sizzle with tropical fruit aroma, grapefruit & mango notes and a dry finish.

Out of a 12oz can, dated 8/10/18. Slight hoppy nose at beginning. Great lacing, cloudy dark orange color. Taste is a little acrid and bitter, but not disagreeably so. Balanced well enough to be drinkable.

12oz can. 8/24/18 can date. Appearance: Dark golden and mostly clear. Quite a bit of coagulated protein floating. Fluffy white headcwith nice lacing.
Aroma: Citrusy, slightly spicy hop aroma. A touch of roasted bread as well.
Taste: Caramel and toasted bread crust maltiness dominate upfront. Slight grapefruit hop character that builds to a strong bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate carbonation.
Finish: strong lingering bitterness and bread crust maltiness
Overall: Decent take on the more traditional american IPA, with a bigger malt backbone to balance the aggressive bitterness. Has the caramel and bread crust maltiness typical of the original AIPA style. Hop aroma is relatively restrained, leaning towards a traditional citrus/grapefruit as opposed to common tropical fruit aromas found these days. Has a heavier body as well

God help me I had this on tap at Applebee’s. Solid APA. Pours medium dark. Tasty. Finishes medium, neither bitter nor floral.

In the can in a pizza place (no glass). Surprised by the fruit & hops & lack of acidic burn. Tasty but light. Clean. Would definitely get again.
