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.

In short: A aromatic, fruity, very hoppy and relatively dry blonde superior IPA of superior quality.
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed fresh soon after purchase.
The look: Slightly cloudy pale golden body topped by a medium white head leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: The very aromatic nose citrusy, floral, pine needles. The typical aromatic elements found in many American IPA but here it is brighter and more vibrant than in most, a very inviting aroma. In mouth the beer has a somewhat doughy texture with generous carbonation. Bready pale malts, soft and chewy, low sweetness sensation, those are pleasant cereals to provide body only, flavor-wise this beer is a hop playground. Hops flavor is more focussed on tropical fruits, more pineapples than the aroma. Sandy notes and pine needles accentuate the dryness sensation. Assertive and clean bitterness. A refreshing and tasty beer, nothing groundbreaking but this is a superior quality IPA. Three things you need to know about me, first and foremost I love blonde aromatic IPAs, secondly toaster ovens are kitchen appliances, and last but not least one third of the time I don’t make any sense.
