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

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.

Draught @ Blue Canyon Tavern. Very hazy (cloudy) yellow gold, thin white head leaving loads of lace. Heaps of white grapefruit, mildly vegetal undertones. Very hoppy, bitter grapefruit rind and resin, with straw-like honey kissed malts. Very nice.

On tap. Pours a hazy golden color with a white head. Aroma is light hoppy bitterness with some pine, floral, and grapefruit. Light malts in the background. Taste mirrors the nose, and is overall nice, just somewhat thin and watery. Finish is dry and moderately bitter.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Draught @ Machinery Row in Great Falls:   Hazy amber, very orangish, thin white sudsy head, decent lacing.   Moderate hop presense on the nose, a little bit of biting citrus peel.   On the tongue its quite bitter, but not overly done.   Decent malt base, very light sweetness, slight citrus peel twang.   I am quite surprised to how good this is for an IPA not thats not brewed on the west coast.   Good dose of bitterness on the tongue, citrus twang.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   I am surprised by this one.   Vert drinkable, good bitterness, with a good malt base.   Better than expected.
