COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Finally an American-style IPA from us... This beautiful red-orange ale has a full malty body balanced by a fruity apricot/grapefruit nose. Mounds of dank Summit hops in the whirlpool and dry-hop additions provide a deliciously quenching finish to this East meets West-coast ale.

@ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Clear medium-dark amber, generous sudsy off-white head, puffs of lace. Taste is malt that moves into the palate carrying a load of citrus hops and sour apricot with it before adding the taste of Ry-Krisp crackers into the finish. Kind of a mess of a beer, sending odd tangents out in all directions. A little more order, please.

12oz can into glass. Pours a brown mash autumn orange, looks like October. Foam is full, large and dominant, looked nice with a vanilla creme color to it. Plenty of lacing. Aroma is dry hay grass lemon pepper hops, mineral water and rum citrus. Taste is bitter, dry melon, punchy grapefruit, weed, and bready malts with a hop kick at the end. Not a bad beer, drinks well at 6.5, high bitter aftertaste.

This was a darn good IPA at a reasonable price. It was recommended by the knowledgeable man at the beer store and I’m glad I tried it. It had a nice frothy head, plenty of hops and it was surrounded by a nice malty background. I will definitely drink this again. The beer expert at the store didn’t consider this a session IPA, but. I do. Very drinkable and the ABV isn’t over the top. See you tomorrow my new friend!

Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma has some sweetness from the caramel malts and some bitterness from the citrus and floral hops. Flavor starts off malty with a hint of toastiness. Finishes only slightly bitter from the floral hops. Pretty thick on the palate as well.

Pretty decent IPA. Aroma isn’t anything to write home about, typical citrus notes, etc. Citrus fruit nose as well with a medium bitter finish.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured cloudy, unfiltered, reddish amber in color with a nice off white head that leaves a very decent lacing on the glass. Aroma of malts and fruit (apricot) are dominant but there is also some hop in there. Taste is sweet, malty and fruity nicely balanced with a slight bitterness from hops. Very well made and very enjoyable.
