COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available year-round.

The States were at war and one fateful day a troop of Union soldiers, occupying what is now Avondale Park, came across a posse of Confederate Home Guards. When shots were exchanged near the house of the town sheriff, a stray bullet struck his wife in the breast as she stood on the porch of her house. Luckily, she made a full recovery!

The Battlefield IPA is a new twist on an American India Pale Ale. Our master blend of west coast hops and the finest American and European malt distinguishes itself from many IPAs on the battlefield. A hoppy citrus and floral nose invites you to experience the perfectly balanced IPA. The natural bouquet of our hop blend and malt gives this IPA a victory all its own. You will agree the battle has been won when you reward yourself with our outstanding spin on the IPA.

3fourths (9104) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 27, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2016 Hazed amber-gold with a white head of some retention. Aroma is crude American hops: Simcoe-like cattiness, garlic butter, fresh cut pine, brined lemon, floral soap. Medium bodied, semi-sweet with surprisingly restrained bitterness. Carbonation is fine and silky, and the body has some decent savoriness, and more tropical fruit notes emerge in the finish, which are more pleasant than the aroma hops. From 12oz can.

Aroma of Pine, some hints of citrus. Orange color with a thin tan head. Sweet up front. Caramel is rich, followed by pine, a hint of grapefruit, more caramel, and then some earthy bitterness. Medium mouth feel, with a slightly bitter finish and some slight alcohol burn.. Average...more like a hoppy pale ale.

[ bottle ][ 1.5oz ][ @Tasting ][ $ ? ][ schnapps flute ][ 12.20.15 ]
copper-gold, heavy particulate with dense cream head, large bubbles. Empty but resinous nose, light paper amidst the oily profile. Front palate is extremely sweet a la dogfish, thick orange-candy esque sweetness, resin cleans by late palate but then dominantly soapy through bitter finish. Yuck.
