COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed as a medium India Pale Ale, this full-flavored moderately hopped beer has the strongest hop character of our ales. Made for hopheads and new beer aficionados. The grist composition is 94% Pale malt, with the remaining grain bill consisting of carastan malts. The finishing Mt. Hood hop addition in the whirlpool gives this beer a good hop character without becoming excessively bitter. The beer is fined instead of filtered so the hop character is not stripped away.

BVery (7952) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Tap at the Schaumburg IL location. Slightly hazy golden orange pour with a very small head. Juicy citrus aroma and taste. Not super rich or complex, but quite serviceable.

"a nice solid ipa. bitter and aromatic. not overly exciting, but nothing bad either. well balanced and dry in the finish with a little citrus and a little spice and biscuit malt."

nuplastikk (5071) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 13, 2014
Sampler at Schaumburg. Far and away the best beer I had at Ram. Big grapefruit rind hop tones. Easy drinking, with a steady classic NW hop bill. Nice to end the otherwise lackluster sampler with. Right on.

b3shine (6570) - Indiana, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Draft to taster at Ram in Indy. Looks solid; a transparent burnt orange with eggshell head. Smells solid; nice juicy hops with a medium-bodied pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells, but maltier. Average on the palate. Solid, but it smells better than it tastes.

maxwelldeux (4164) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Draught in a flight at the pub. Pours a cloudy dark amber color. Nose has some nice hoppiness to it, with some grapefruit notes coming through. The taste was bitter, and had that same spiciness I usually associate with rye in there. Decent drink.

Patrickctenchi (4817) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Draft @ Downtown Indy RAM Cloudy, brown/amber with a short, off-white head. Caraamel, pine aroma. Taste is the same....mild malt... Very mild overall, not a standout.

Syzzer (616) - Oregon, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Enjoyed on tap @ Ram in Salem, OR with Erick 1-17-14. Flavor is fairly mild, some weak hops, some carmelly light malt. Translucent red with weak head. 5.5 BD

Pours a slightly milky golden yellow with a sparse bright white head. Notes of caramel and grapefruit. Definite flavors of ruby red grapefruit. Sour palate that lasts quite a while. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
