COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Extensively hopped and dryhopped with a big roster of hops – Simcoe, Centennial, Cascade, Ahtanum, Chinook, and Amarillo – it’s big, bright, and floral, with just enough malt to balance. This American-style I.P.A. stands head and shoulders above its hoppy brethren, blending pale and honey malts to balance the palate without interfering in your herbal reverie, and creating a new American classic.

Smells of floral scent with straight hop smell. Juicey tangerine smell at the end. Lovely cloudy yellow gold color with short white head that does not last some lacing. Really Juicey hop flavor while the malts balance it out nicely for a dry smooth finish. Medium body with light crisp carbonation. The flavor blew my mind it was like I was getting more and more flavor on each sip. Very nice brew.

Quick3Beers (812) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Pours a hazy amber from a bottle, white head with lots of lacing. The lacing really lasts too; I like it when it’s like it tells a story all the way to the top of the glass. Not much of an aroma, just kind of a general fruitiness with some pine. Flavor is kind of a mish mash of mango, papaya, and pine, but it works. Good bittersweetness too. Very nice IPA.
