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.

Samtzu (64) - Palmerston North, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 24, 2016
650ml bottle. Huge nose which lead to equally large flavour. Unfortunately it did not live up to this, while still a fantastic beer, it was not quite what I was hoping for.

Ibrew2or3 (7960) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 7, 2016
22oz bomber pours with a very near clear pure gold body that supports a white head of foam. The aroma offers up malt sweetened pineapple, grapefruit and other various soft citrus notes. The taste delivers a moderate level of bitter grapefruit and pineapple and then getting into a bit of cantaloupe and malts. Nice. It creates a bit more bitter fruity hoppiness than it does thin strands of tropical fruity juiciness. It ends even with pineapple and a thin cracker malt sensation.

Pours hazy apricot with a medium white head. Aromas of apricot, peach, kiwi, mango, resin, pine. Taste is fruity, yes, but not massively so. Instead very nicely balanced between fruitiness and malty backbone. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

monk191 (1609) - California, USA - APR 3, 2016
A very nice IPA, well balanced. Pour a clear orange with little head. Smells great, of tropical fruit, peach, pear and pineapple. Taste is tropical fruit to start, with a nicely bitter but balanced finish. Had on tap.

piscator34 (2273) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 27, 2016
Bottle. Hazy pale orange in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of strong pine resin, orange, rich pale malts, and a bit of booze. Flavors are of pinecone, juniper berry, wintergreen, sweet orange, and cookie dough malts. Chunky bitterness. Good amount of complexity here, but a bit too hefty in the malt department for me.
