COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The destroyer, the creator, the benefactor. Shiva is all these things. We set out to create an IPA that anyone can enjoy, and we think we succeeded. As the flagship beer in our lineup, we’ve yet to encounter a soul who believes contrary. A crisp, citrusy Indian Pale Ale with a light color, Shiva will destroy all your preconceptions of an IPA. A transcendentally simple malt bill accents a generous helping of Columbus hops, lending an intense floral aroma with hints of grapefruit and a pleasant bittering quality. Your palette will be lifted to higher planes of consciousness with a bittersweet finish.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2005 $3 pint at the APC. Had the characteristic citrusy hops of most of the IPAs I’ve tried. Nothing really sticks out in my mind on this one. Pretty average IPA I reckon.

On tap at the brewpub. This place is awesome! Watch a movie, eat pizza, and drink craft beer all at the same time! Shiva pours a rich gold color with nice lacing. Has a bready aroma, but not too much of a hop aroma for the style. Taste however is a very pronounced cascade hop. Nice.

I dont like IPAs. And this is one i didnt reall care for. Pours a pale golden color with a slight white head. ITs a bit to bitter for my tastes.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 7, 2004
Straw pale gold with sticky white lacing and a tiny cap of head. The aroma is very fresh & juicy with some bright C hops. The flavor is a little less pronounced but smooth & creamy. Finishes bittersweet with a dry mouth feel.

Pale Copper. Nice white head. Acidic, alomst sour hops flavor. It was unexpected, but strangely appealing. Not much malt to speak of.
