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 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.

Yummy grapefruit and thick mouthfeel. Enjoyed one before some huckleberry pie at West Glacier Restaurant near Glacier NP. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Tap. Pours hazy light amber with a small white head that dissipates with good lacing. Aroma is of pine and citrus, Flavor is pine, grapefruit, mildly sweet caramel malt. Finish is lightly bitter and very crisp and clean. Silky in the mouth. Not a bad beer.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 2, 2011
Draft at Bert & Ernie’s. Pours murky green-gold, thin, though persistent, off-white head, solid lacing. Nose is very spicy citrus hops. This smells better than fresh homebrew! Very complex grapefruit/stonefruit/juniper interplay. Flavours are fresh and snappy, with lingering malt and solid whole-cone hop character. A shade light on the bitterness, but a very well-crafted, lighter interpretation of a PNW IPA. Neat shit.
