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 hops—grown 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.

Braudog (6312) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2016
Bottle. Pours with a giant head that just won’t quit. Big citrus-bloom nose. Viscous. Quite floral and oily. Good $hit. (#6303, 8/27/2016)

PotjeBier (2661) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2016
Tap @ Beer Temple, 5 oz, with Kermis. Hazy golden color. Uneven, a bit rocky white head, with some lacing. Aroma’s: resinous, citrus, caramel. Retronasal there’s citrus, caramel, some resin. Flavor is moderate sweet-moderate bitter. Medium bodied. Rather bitter finish. Again I had the impression this was not very fresh...

skmikeg (1719) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Pour orange with a one finger white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, grass, bready malts, tropical fruits, and biscuit malts. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a tasty, pretty hopyy, classic west coast style IPA.

graham_murphy (604) - - AUG 7, 2016
A special one. Overflowing with west coast hops - grapefruit, orange, tangerine and pine. Quite a punch in the nose. Medium sweetness and weight from the malt. All a bit raw and unsubtle like a farmhouse IPA - a good thing.

Achel (390) - Ioannina, GREECE - AUG 4, 2016
Cloudy amber, offwhite froth. Resin and caramel aroma, hints of rubber. Mouthfeel is slick and oily. Fruity, piney flavour. Solid caramely backing, passionfruit. Has a nice DIPAish roughness to it. Nice.

mansquito (5208) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 3, 2016
The Sampler, Brooklyn can: pours orange with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit, pineapple, and pine without the apple. Nice amount of tropical fruit in the taste while maintaining a hefty dosage of hop bitterness. Pretty good.

kathouse (1608) - Nevada, USA - JUL 31, 2016
Pours a dark gold with a thick white foam. Pine, mango, and tangerine aromas are followed by a bitter bite of grapefruit and tropical fruit hops. Dry on the finish.

Hazy light tan. Piney hop nose. Moderate bitterness, quite a bit if sweetness. A bit yeasty, some citrus.

mcberko (14080) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 27, 2016
On tap at St Augustine’s, pours a close pale golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out fresh piney hops upfront, with some sticky hop resins and biscuity malt. Flavour is super fresh, with lovely piney hops dominating the palate, followed by some sticky hop resins and just enough biscuity malt. Nothing extraordinary but it’s an excellent by the books west coast piney IPA that is underrated.
