COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Introducing our year-round Almanac IPA, a West Coast hop bomb overflowing with hop flavors and aromas. We start with a copper-hued malt base of California-grown two-row barley, German Vienna Malt, Crystal Malts and Biscuit Malt. Then we start layering on the hopsgrown all along the west coast in California, Oregon and Washington. We combine Magnum, Chinook, Cascade, El Dorado and Simcoe to create our own unique twist on the IPA style with intense aromas of grapefruit and tangerine peel, pineapple and pine trees. The finish has a clean bitterness and light saltine cracker note.

A- pours a hazy deep orange color with a 2 finger, off white head that leaves lacing on the way down. S- citrusy hops, mild maltiness, fairly faint. t- lime, lemon rind, citrus up front that flows into light fruit and is finished off by lime and a lingering bitterness M- medium bodied, ample carbonation D- very interesting ipa, I got more lime out of the taste than I have from any other beer.

andrewje41 (398) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Draft pour. A nice caramel color pour with a slightly foul pine aroma. Sweet hop flavors with more pine. Finishes a little bitter. Not too impressed with this one, but I was also expecting a lot from this. Overall, its not bad.

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 14, 2014
The beer is beautiful. Lightly hazy, a dark golden blonde with a fluffy foamy head. Aroma is strongly of pine and tangerine. Flavor is bitter-hops, but much more muted than I expected. Very balanced. Very good. Im a fan.

Sample @Ratebeer Gallery II - thanks for the pour Jason! Pours clear amber with a bit of a head and no real lacing. Aroma is citrus, cat piss, pine resin - nice. Flavor follows with some sweetness and medium bitterness. Medium body, a bit of oiliness in the mouth. I think this is a solid effort, clearly one up on the wet hop series.
