India Pale Ale brewed with 2-row malted barley, oats, and citrusy hops from the Pacific Northwest. Dry hopped copiously with Simcoe. Its sessionable drinkability belies its true IPA nature.

Draught at Three Penny, 7/24/15
Lightly-to-moderately hazy golden-brass body is topped by a medium-sized white head showing strong retention.
Simcoe has to be one of the most amazing dry hops....no garlic, onion, cat pee issues with it and when itís used in a dry/late-hop capacity, you donít get the heavy pine/resin that is associated with boiling it for too long. Instead, juicy red grapefruit, tangy pine, sweet mango and light wintergreen surge forth. Thereís a lot more leafy, lush, rather spicy floral notes here, which are well-appreciated and highly enjoyable. The pale malts, well-attenuated, provide soft, unobtrusive balance in the background. Clean yeast character, flawless and with no resin problems or alcohol.
The flavor has the creamy texture of the Excursions #4 I just had, but with a tighter carbonation that helps lend crispness to the beer. Light wintergreen, spruce, lime and red grapefruit flit about the palate, while a very gentle maltiness balances just like in the nose. Bitterness builds some towards the finish, but never to the point of fatigue. Extremely drinkable, flavorful and lacking any harsh pine or heavy bitterness. Nothing flashy, and some may not be wowed by itís relative tameness, but the execution and elegance here are right up there with the best IPAs Iíve ever had. A real god damned treat!

Fresh growler. Pours a hazy pale orange with a fluffy white head. Aroma is floral, citrus, orange. A wonderful fruity and juicy taste. An initial light apparent sweetness up front; a medium bitterness takes over midpalate. Long, moderately bitter finish. Medium bodied and soft. Wonderful.

[ Bottle ][ 8oz ][ @Tasting ][ $ - ?] [ Tulip ][ 04.07.15 ]
murky hay, puffy white head. Simcoe stink hop, light straw with decent tangerine and soft, sugary dough, balanced if straightforward, heavy on paper. Soft profile, light citrus with mango and orange sweetness, dry and nuanced with faint wood. Finish is huge cracker presence, sticky, frothy and full with zesty carb. Really balanced if simplistic but flat body.

Draft at three penny. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a small sudsy white head. Aromas burst out with citrus and pine. Little dank. Flavor of grapefruit, lemon, pine. Light body with a sticky texture. Average carbonation and subtly dry to finish. Super crushable. Awesome.

AirForceHops (4508) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 24, 2015
Draft @ Three Penny Taproom. Bright yellow color. Awesome aroma of pine, bright citrus and grain. Flavor is mostly the same with the simcoe giving that West Coast feel. The hops are jumping in this brew; starts with a huge citrus punch with the grain body giving some balance. The pine shines through in the finish with being abrasive. Damn, this is crushable beyond a reasonable doubt. If I could.buy enough of this it would be a all summer long drinker.
