This Traditional IPA is a hophead’s dream. The distinct sharpness of British hops and moderate alchohol are balanced by a dry, malty profile and crisp flavor. The result is a brew as smooth as a sunset paddle on the glassy waters of Lac Du Bay. Seasonal March - October.

bubblehouse (936) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 5, 2015
Not a bad ipa. Definitely drinkable but nothing really stands out about it. Hoppy but lingers a bit long.

Homer321 (2982) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Moderate grassy and earthy flavors followed by a pithy earthy hop bitterness. Not much malt character. Maybe a hint of burnt bread but has a watery and thin mouthfeel. Some burnt character. But like a burnt rubber.

GuenSmith (28) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Nose has notes of wheat, mowed grass, chocolate and an earthiness. Pours an amber to red-brown with nearly an inch of foam that dissipates in a couple minutes. Taste is hop forward then moving to a caramel, toffee, chocolate that quickly gives way to a nice crisp hop finish. Beverage comes to the palate strong and clean, finishing crisply.

trapped (1662) - New York, TURKEY - JUN 5, 2015
Draught @ Waterfront Ale House. Reddish dark amber with medium sized creamy beige head, slight caramel aroma, low carbonation, slightly hoppy bitter caramel taste, abrupt finish with bitter aftertaste. I did not really taste the hops much, more like an ESB.

downender (7253) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle at Top Hops, NY, 19/5/2015. AMber in colour, with a slight, off-white, head. Hedgerow, slightly spicy, hops, robust, earthy malts, some warming alcohol before a dryish finish. Good.

deyholla (8904) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a slight orange hue and a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has earthy grains and hay with a bit of sweet citrus and grass underlying. Flavor is grassy with some sweet grains and a kiss of citrus.
