COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This West Coast/Rocky Mountain-style India Pale Ale is back-hopped for a more intense hop bitterness, flavor and aroma without the balance of caramel malts like our Midwest-style Baldock IPA. It has medium-high alcohol content, high fruity, floral and citrus-like American-varietal hop character, deep golden color and medium maltiness.

12oz can pours with a nearly clear copper body that supports a thin off white head. The aroma offers up mangos, cantaloupe, some citrus gummy bears and then a thin river of sweet malts in the background. The taste delivers juicy tropical fruit, bitter citrus hops and then malty sweet cantaloupe. These notes struggle to meld together toward midway and into the finish where a mild degree of earthy cucumber murmurs to the surface. Interesting brew. A few more ounces seems to make it come into focus but then a few more and it diverges. Hmm.
