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.

Fritz123 (1360) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Draft at the Syb Pig in Boca Raton, Fl. Poured into a tupil. Nice copper with slight haze and one finger white head that lasted. Some solid lacing as well. Aroma is citrus and some mild pine and pine resin. Clean smelling brew. The taste is citrus with orange mainly, slightly sweet malt characteristics, hint of pine and pine resin. Again, clean tasting and balanced. Soft finish, not much bitterness. Good IPA.

BBB63 (6474) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 27, 2015
Can: Moderately juicy and some floral notes, somewhat sweeter and darker than normally found in the genre. Good lacework upon the pint glass. That said it has a smooth approachable palate and quaffs easy for 6.9%.

Dark orange verging on brown, white head. Light but creamy body. Pine and citrus in the nose and taste, with the honey providing a little sweetness at the end.

Can. No detailed notes - have had it a few times. More malt than expected for sure - drinks more like a hopped version of their Wavemaker amber, especially considering the ABV.

kespecial (152) - - JUN 17, 2015
Pours much darker than a typical IPA: a murky light brown. Nose is dank pine, some bread. Taste is quite malty, with some caramel and honey blending with an average amount of hops, more pine, and stone fruit. Not bad, but arguably mislabeled: the hops level is about the same as an APA, and there is a significant malt presence such that I’d call this a hoppy amber or something.

Thanks for sharing Thomas! Orange pour. Nose is maltier than typical for an IPA, piney. Taste is sweet malts and tropical fruits. Slick mouthfeel.
