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

3fourths (7976) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Draft sample is clear amber. Has a crystalline sharp Cascade fruit nose, very bright and vibrant, but I think it lacks some depth, and is less pure and clean than I think a single-hop IPA should smell. Flavor is bitter, dry, catty, and overall it’s a very drinkable IPA but again, I think it falls short, and shows why the best IPAs in the world use hops as one would use colors in a painting. Still, it’s always interesting to try a single-hop and single-malt beer.

DuffMan (6646) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 20, 2011
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.

marcus (6421) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 9, 2009
This hazy golden ale poured with a modest off-white head and a pine aroma. There is a decent caramel malt flavor, but it’s pretty thin. There is significant hop bitterness at the finish.

5000 (6239) - 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.

douglas88 (5903) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 8, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2008 2008 NABA. On draft. Pours a very interesting orange color with a small white head. The aroma was quite nice; mostly floral hops and light malts. The taste was really nice; a really good helping of Cascade hops, which was not really bitter, but very tasty and was balanced well by the malt presence. I have to say I really liked this beer, simple in some ways, but very well made.
