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.

3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 20, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2008 Troegs Scratch 12, draft at the brewery and 12oz bottle afterwards, pours murky and hazy golden wheat in color with a white head. Nose is catty, nutty, dry cobwebs along with a subtle dried pineapple fruit note. Flavor is fresh and vibrant dried fruit and dried hop leaves, a little nutty as well. Not what I would call dank or overly fruity, but rather nicely dry. Finish is strongly bitter and drying but ultimately smooth and soothing on the palate. Huge bitterness but not assertive or astringent on the palate. Very delicious.

egajdzis (5253) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2008
[Draft and Firkin @ TDR SH] Poured a hazy golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, citrus, hay, floral hops, and toasty malts. Taste of citrus, orange peel, toffee, pine, grapefruit, and a citrusy / bitter finish.

TomDecapolis (4427) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - JUN 19, 2008
On tap and firkin at Drafting Room in Springhouse. Pours a hazy golden orange with a medium creamy off white head. Aroma pine, grapefruit, lightly floral, mixed citrus and bready malt. Flavor of fresh American hops, pine, grapefruit, orange, bready malt and floral. Firkin was about the same, a bit more hop flavor, the orange and Amorilio really coming through in flavor.

tdrshayden (3) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2008 does not count
A bold west-coast style ipa. Wonderful citrus, piney aroma. Very little malt flavor evident, but packed with citrus hop flavor that finishes long and dry. An excellent sesson beer
