COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This pale bronze beer is medium in body with intense hop flavor and aroma. Our IPA is brewed in the style of the “west coast” with robust hop character coming from American grown varieties of hops. IPA’s are amongst the most popular craft brewed beers as they have moderate strength and tons of flavor. This is not your Grandfathers beer! 5.9% alcohol by volume, 60 IBUs

lamas (1372) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle. "Boned" on: 07/08/13. A slightly hazy copper pour with a thick beige head. Pine, oranges, grapefruits, zesty citrus rinds, brown sugar, and caramel feature prominently in the aroma. Grains become much more apparent with a little warmth. A relatively thin palate. Fairly watery. The taste starts with a touch of wheat and some sweet graininess. Kinda biscuity in the middle. Oranges, grapefruits, and plenty of bitter rinds at the end. Hints of spice throughout. Overrated.

ROGUE (2127) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 21, 2013
On tap at State Line. Pours a clear golden color with a dense white bubbly head, with good retention and plenty of lacing. Faint aromas of floral and herbal hops along with toasted white bread maltiness. Taste of hops carry the beer with ripe grapefruit and lemony citrus notes, while pale malts do a good job of adding heft and light sweetness. Well carbonated and medium bodied.

Huhzubendah (2658) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 18, 2013
On draft in Georgetown. The beer is clear and golden with an inch of white head. The aroma brings bitter hops, pine, a touch of floral character. Certainly a hop forward offering with ample bitterness throughout, finishing dry. Alcohol presence is noticeable and I was surprised to find that this beer was less than 6% ABV. A decent offering and example of the style, but not something I feel I need to have again. A middle of the pack IPA with no distinguishing traits.

Shanebrews (194) - Texas, USA - AUG 6, 2013
This is a quality IPA. The bitterness is in line with West Coast beers, quite strong with sort of a pine essence. It’s good but not my favorite.

chinchill (2128) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 1, 2013
12 oz bottle date stamp indicates bottling In June 2013: about 6 weeks ago. Pours a clear, light amber with a generous, thick and very durable head. S: Quite hoppy, as expected for a recent vintag IPA, The piney and citrus components are strongest, buth there are some earthy and herbal notes too. Some malt shows as well. T: Hop forward, as expected, but if anything more hoppy than expected. M: Smooth, medium+ body with good carbonation. Clearly above average for style.
