COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Released as both Drafting Room 14th Anniversary Ale and Troegs Scratch 12

This bold IPA is brewed with Pils and Vienna malt and Amarillo, Warrior, and Mount Hood hops. It has fresh citrus and pine aromas followed by bold dry hop flavors, a faint nutty malt backing and a tantalizing hop finish that lingers on the tongue.

One hell of an IPA... pours cloudy gold color with an immovable head that laces like no other. citrus, pine, with a touch of grass and soft malt in the aroma. flavor is citrus, pine, and a bit of grass but in a good way. faint biscuity backing with soft pils malt. perfect mouth feel slighty chewy with gentle carbonation. Great IPA

Bottle from Capone’s. Pours out a golden/straw color with a small to moderate creamy white head. Aroma is of citrus, grass and pine hops. Taste is a nice mix of hop flavors, citrus, grassy and some resiny taste. Dry finish. Very well done

12oz bottle, picked up for me by acrdz. Thanks, Mike! Pours a clear, medium golden-orange color; slightest haze; thick white head with solid retention and lacing. Very pleasant, dry and bitter aroma; resiny orange and citrus hops more than anything; suggestive of a numbing bitterness; no astringency. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: soft but solid carbonation; resiny, juicy oranges and citrus fruit; touch of grapefruit; the hop character takes center stage here, and is presented beautifully: chewy Amarillo oranginess and dense, tongue-numbing bitterness nicely dry overall, and very very drinkable. Excellent IPA. Medium finish: some breadiness and toastiness appear near the end, with lingering hop bitterness (oranges, touch of pine); dry and a touch of spiciness at the far end.

Draught at TDR Ex: Hoppy aroma. Smells of floral, fruit, citrusy, piney hops, and tropical fruits. Poured yellow/gold in color with a medium-sized rocky white head that lasted. Hazy. Slightly sparkling. Very good lacing. Lightly sweet, medium bitter flavor. Tastes of hops, flowers, pine, and tropical fruit. Medium body. Smooth, then chalky texture. Average carbonation. Dry, medium-bitter hop finish. Could be more bitter.
