COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Spring IPA (March-May) is a West Coast-style IPA with an up-front intense hop flavor and aroma. Amarillo and Centennial hops give the brew a rich and resinous flavor of citrus and spice. This bright pale ale has a malt sweetness that will give way to a pleasant bitter. It pairs well with Mexican or spicy Szechwan Chinese food. Spring IPA is a nice accompaniment for cheeses with strong flavors, like sharp cheddar or goat cheese.

Bottle. Slightly murky orange pour with a nice frothy off-white head. Nice aroma of resin and citrus. Hopes were high, but the taste fell a little flat for me - not bad, but it comes across as a bit unbalanced and overly astringent late.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste floral, light citrus, lightly hopped. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle: Pours hazy, orange-amber with a creamy, yellow-white head. Slightly bready, caramel, cedar aroma. Pungent resin and spiced orange malt taste. Earthy, piney bitter. Very solid.

jkwalking05 (3914) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2014
12 oz bottle. Hazy gold with an average off-white head. Aroma is very dank, with some floral, citrus and caramel notes. Taste is of perfume, floral, citrus, lots of dank hops, some pine, grass and herbal notes. A nice bitterness and a fairly dry finish. I was very pleased with this brew...a casualty of label bias...

travita (4150) - Frisco, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle. The look is somewhat clear, has an off white head, and is golden orange in color. The smell is resiney, dank, pine, woods, and dried orange peel. The taste is resin, pine, sap, bitter, hops, and harsh.

BOSSbrewer (1973) - Arkansas, USA - MAY 25, 2014
This is a nice ipa. Pours golden with two fingers of white head. Aroma is citrus tangerine and lemon. Fairly bitter. Very little malt. Nice example of west coast ipa.

northropfrye (2306) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 24, 2014
Light orange body with foamy white head, attractive. Nice whollop of hops, pine, citrus. Taste is resinous, some sweet malts in there. Kind of borders on a typical double IPA flavour, but less intense. Quality stuff.

Bif (1559) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours a copper color with a fair head and some lacing. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, bit of malt sweetness and floral. Taste of pine, grapefruit, malt sweetness and trace of spice. Hop driven bitterness and a fairly clean finish. Medium body, crisp with a hop driven attitude. Nice beer for the style.
