12oz. bottle straight from the brewery, poured into a tulip glass.

A- a light amber, with a huge off white head. Great lacing.

S- some caramel/bready malts, with some earthy and slightly citric hops.

T- starts with some mild fruity hop character, which is mixed with a pretty big bready, slightly caramel malt backbone. Hops aren't huge, but turn slightly minty, and resinous on the finish.

M- slightly heavier than medium. Plenty of carbonation.

O- Just not quite up to snuff. Hops just don't pop.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #88 (May 2014):

Brash, Tobacco, Bitter, Grass

Extra pungent hop bitterness with a thick layer of fresh clipped grass flavor. A bit of a hop overload here if that is possible. Experimental 06300 and Appollo hops are used in this brew, both are super high alpha acid hops. Meaning if even slightly overuse them taste buds will pay the price and they do.

STYLE: American IPA | ABV: 6.0% | AVAILABILITY: Year-round
