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.

brokensail (10728) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 16, 2011
Labeled as Scratch 12. A: The beer pours a cloudy orange color with a small white head. S: A surprisingly citrusy aroma to this beer. Some nice tangerine and orange notes. Sweet fruits and a bit of oxidation, brown sugar, and sweet pale malts round out the aroma. T: Good citrus peel flavor and a surprising bitterness. Some tangerine and peaches give a nice sweetness, which is not overrunning the beer. I find that surprising given the fact this is three year old IPA. M: Medium in body with a low to medium carbonation. O: Certainly not ideal, but this is still pretty good. Nice fruit and pine flavors.

3fourths (7976) - 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.
