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

Pint at Tyler’s Apex. Good aroma sweet. Bitter. Strong n the grapefruit, though has a malty streak about it. Clean brownish orange color, good head and lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish. It’s good, solid IPA.

jbrana (590) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - AUG 25, 2015
A nice, straightforward IPA, with nice tropical aroma, and citrus flavors. The finish is very piny and perhaps a little too hair-spray-bitter for my liking. However, other than that, it is a nice beer.

harrisoni (15314) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2015
Bottle from GBBF 2015 and drunk at home. Slight haze amber lasting ivory coloured head. Grapefruity hoppy aroma with a touch of caramel. It’s a pretty decent American IPA to be honest. Some pink grapefruit, some bitterness, not overly sweet, some bitterness, fresh tasty and I rather liked it.

Devils Backbone IPA pours a crystal clear dark amber with an amazing head that leave layers of LA in all the way down the glass. Nice bright hop pine and resin aromas. Fresh smelling. Grapefruit and toasty malt are the primary flavors here. Well done.
