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.

On tap @ Destihl. Straight from the tank. A lightly cloudy orange pour with white foam. Huge orange, grapefruit, and pine. Subtle herbs. Very light dough and bread. Quite dank. Flavor is dominated by the citrus. Great orange, grapefruit, and maybe a hint of kumquat. Woody herb and pine bitterness. Just a hint of bread flavor and sweetness. Solid IPA.

Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy gold with an off white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of citrus with a bit of grass and a sweet grain backbone. Flavor has more sweet citrus with a bit of bitterness and a bit of sweet grain.

hayduke (3317) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Sampled at the Normal brewpub with Dave and Doran. The came in the tasting glass a clear gold with a good white head and showed nice lacing The nose is pine, citrus, and tropical fruits. Very appealing aroma. Body is medium and there is a very resinous mouth feel. The flavor is very big on he tropical fruit and the pine and citrus and bitterness make a delightful dry hoppy finish. Excellent beer.

On tap at O’Riley & Conways, pours a clear dark orange with a creamy head, the aroma wasn’t bad at all, decent amount of citrus with a little bit of tropical fruit too, the flavor is of light hops and the citrus pretty much dropped to nothing, very light mouthfeel and thin in the finish.

Purchased from Destihl in growler form, enjoyed in a hotel room in Springfield, IL the day before the "Fat Ass 5K". Appearance is a lightly clear golden amber with a thin frothy white head. Aroma of light citrus. Taste also of citrus notes but not much else, slightly syrupy, just meh.

Sampled at the brewpub. Clear holden with an off white head that leaves thick lacing. Pine and floral aromas. Resiny flavor with pine and heavy malts. Perhaps too much resin. Very decent.

A caramel malt backbone with fruity, floral and citrusy hops. Decent IPA, but a little more sweet and had a rubbing alcohol accent.
