COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A very unique American style India Pale Ale. Our IPA features a dark copper color that is clear with a solid head that is off white in color. It has medium maltiness and body. Hop flavor and aroma is high with medium hop bitterness. The hop profile is very interesting as it has the standard fruity, floral and citrus like hop character that you would expect from an American IPA but ours also has tropical type flavors and aroma that makes it distinctive. Food pairing will make spicy foods hotter and counter balance foods that are very rich and sweet like desserts, caramelized meats and fatty cheeses. A portion of sales go to support the Museum of the Marine.

Draft sample at Cherry Blossom Beer & Wine fest, hazy copper color with off-white head. Aroma notes of grassy/earthy hops and caramel malt sweetness. Taste adds toasted grain and some pine. Medium body, moderate-low carbonation, dry with lingering pine/earthy finish. A little too rough for me.

sloth (2625) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Medium sized off white head with good retention and lacing. Clear, dark copper hued color. Nose of mild citrus and lightly sweet malts. Body is middlin, soft carbonation, lightly oily. Grainy malt flavors up front backed by light citrus notes, grainy, bready, a bit buttery as it warms. More of an english style? Lightly sweet, bready finish with little bite. Bomber from statelineliquors.

jgb9348 (5067) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Very nice deep copper coloured body with a crisp peach glow and a good, two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of malt, copper, metal, earth, nuts and a decent amount of relatively mild, soapy hops. Medium-bodied; Assertive earthy body with a good malt kick showing some caramel sweetness and a decidedly metallic and bitter flavour from the hops and earth. Aftertaste shows a deep and pungent flavour with most of the metal and earthiness coming out and little of the nice enjoyable flavours. Overall, a decent IPA showing a slight kick, although there is more from the metallic bitterness and earthy flavours than from hops. If I did this again, I’d pass on this beer and save my money for something else. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Washington (Logan Circle, P Street), DC on 01-September-2014 for US$6,99 sampled at home in Washington on 20-November-2014.

jbruner (2920) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Pours a clear copper from the bottle with thin off-white head that leaves light lace. Aroma is piney hop over deep caramel and pale malt. Taste is way more malty, very little hop flavor at all. Definitely more toward the English variety, nothing special.

GenDV138 (3231) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - SEP 28, 2014
22 oz bottle poured into a tulip. Clear amber with half a finger of off-white head. Aromas of stone fruit, some tropical fruit, caramel, light floral notes. Tastes of sweet malt, citrus, toast, some tropical and stone fruit, floral and grassy notes. Medium body with a dry finish. Medium carbonation, malty mouthfeel. It’s on the malty side which isn’t my favorite but it’s a solid beer.

hfmejias (984) - Dover, Delaware, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Bomber. Poured clear, dark amber in color, nice foamy off white head and lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malts and citrus hops, combined with a bit of caramel. Taste is sweet and malty but balanced with a nice hoppy bitterness. Drinkable and enjoyable.
