COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This India Pale Ale packs a larger punch than the Palmbender, but it’s well-balanced characteristics make it an easy drinking IPA. Brewed with 2-row American pale ale malts and dry hopped with whole cone cascades, this cloud rolls in with a 6.9% ABV and intense citrusy hop aroma that will satisfy the hophead in us all. The addition of local honey at the end of the brewing process lends a subtle sweetness for a clean finish.

Can via trade. Somewhat murky orange pour with a soapy white head. Floral and mild citrus aroma, with a hint of stale hops. On taste, the stale hops take over. Hard to get past that.

Can... RBWG 2015... Pours hazy and orange with a small, creamy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The nose features cookie, caramel and biscuit malts providing structure for a fine set of citrusy hops – tangerine and grapefruit peels. Full-bodied with adequate carbonation. The flavor provides loads of rindy and tannic hop bitterness. Lengthy, metallically-bitter finish.
