Brewed by:
City Steam Brewery Café
Connecticut, United States
citysteam.biz

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Be forewarned: One too many of these babies and you'll be seeing double! This traditional IPA is anything but what the name suggests. Bookended between a lush abundance of sweet malt and bitter hops, this fine American INDIA PALE ALE is made for (and approved by) serious beer drinkers! Our third and most recent bottled offering, it is available in stores throughout Connecticut. Brewed to a gravity of 18 Plato, it boasts an international menagerie of expensive hops, including CTZ, Zythos, East Kent Goldings, and, oddly enough, Czech Sazz. Our Brewmaster sazz you need to come in for a taste.

Had this beer back in January 2015, reviewing from notes. The description of this beer makes it sound like it will be fantastic, but upon first sip I can tell this will be weak. The taste is watery and the hops aren't as pronounced as you think they would be. Medium bodied and a bit bland.

Pours a light orange color with a white head. The smell is full of hops with citrus and orange peel being very present in the scent. The taste was full of grapefruit and other citrus with some pine as well. Very well layered IPA and not overly aggressive. Would try again.
