Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our IPA is a session IPA, a smooth golden ale packed with the bold flavor and aroma of American hops. We crafted it in the spirit of the low gravity IPAs common in the UK where the style stands for hoppy, not heavy.

India Pale Ales (IPAs) were first brewed in England during the late 1700s for export overseas to British soldiers in India. To keep their beer from spoiling during the long voyage, English brewers fortified their traditional pale ale recipes with hops as a natural preservative. Today, the term IPA is used for many full flavored beers along a wide array of recipes.

My sister brought this back from St. Louis

Clear gold with a thin head. Smells like lemon and grassy hop but that fades quickly and leaves a bland golden ale pale malt eh in its wake. Taste is a again initially lemongrass hops but once that fades the mildly caramel malt and and subtle bitter in back give an expired apple juice impression. Kinda bubbly.

30 ibus will stretch only so far. Well thanks for thinking of me sis just the same.

Pale copper IPA from da can eh? This one has nice chunky lacing, head is thick bright white egg shell hued, nice looking brew so far. Aroma muted hops watered down citrus notes, pale biscuit malts session IPA the can says bold flavors....they lied a bit there. Canned in June, pretty lifeless watered down hops, generic hop pellet flavor mild biscuit malt sweetness pretty mediocre as a whole. Low alcohol is a good feature but not when the flavor is lacking. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied no hop oils featured on the palate goes down easy but it's a weird experience. Overall I bought a six and I'm glad I don't have access to anymore, worth the try but I bought this based one nostalgia from visiting the brewery in St. Louis over ten years ago.
