COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Just like Single Malt Scotch, our spring seasonal I.P.A. is brewed from 100% crisp Maris Otter floor-malted (made by hand!) barley - no specialty malts, no blending. This traditional India Pale Ale is heavily hopped with both Magnum and Cascade hops grown in the Pacific Northwest. Golden in color, refreshing to drink and full of hops, this beer is available from mid-February through mid-September

On tap. Pours a hazy orange-gold with a thin, white head that leaves spotty lacing. Sweet, floral aroma of grapefruit, tropical fruit, caramel malt and pine. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, grapefruit, tropical fruit and pine with a dry, bitter, hop resin finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Not bad.

Bulk_Carrier (3474) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - MAR 9, 2015
On tap at Brewhouse Bar & Grille, Helena, MT. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a semi-hazy orange color with a bar pour’s kind of slim white head. Stringy smooth lacing stuck and then slid adequately into the beer. The smell had a huge burst of grapefruit up front with a light caramel underneath but balanced out as it warmed. The taste copied the smell and lead to a sweet to bitter grapefruit aftertaste and a semi-dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there and somewhat sharp but nothing overbearing. Good. Overall, I say this was a pretty good APA that I would have again.

Thanks, Ryan. Fairly light with a bit of grain and moderate bitterness. Could use more hop aroma and flavor.

Draft. Still, hazed golden, glassy appearance. Dry sweaty nose, funky sour hops. Nice funk, chewy, green moss. Full, odd flavored IPA, nice fruitiness.
