COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 11, 2008
Cloudy/hazy orange-amber with a medium off-white slowly retiring head. Aroma of citrus, bread, caramel. Taste of sweet malt, hops, caramel, spice with a medium bitter finish. Seems a little over malted for a true IPA, but who knows, I’m just dreaming about this one it seems. It did hide the alcohol well though.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 14, 2008
A retired brew? I got the last one at Steve’s in Madison. Pours a hazey bright orange colour with a small off white head. Aroma is fruity, with tropical fruits and noticeable pleasent hop character. Taste is citrusy, astringent- well balanced but with a swift hop kick. Floral with generous amounts of grapefruit and green apple.

ChainGangGuy (4803) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clearish, dark amber body with a foamy, off-white head. Smell: Cinnamon sticks and sugar blended into a scent of grainy malts with a faroff hint of lemon. Taste: A flavor of toasted grains, but with no real sweetness present. Instead, you’re treated to a fresh spice component tasting of cinnamon and maybe even nutmeg. Again, there’s those grains. Medium-high bitterness. Neutrally flavored finish that just sorta ends. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Okay, at best. Those IPA just didn’t do for me one bit.
