COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our India Pale Ale is brewed with an aggressive hop profile derived from Amarillo and Simcoe hops. A blend of Crystal malts creates the backbone which supports the hop character without diminishing it.

BrewIPA (91) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Pours a nice thick head, amber/golden color. Not much aroma in glass. A lighter tasting IPA with less body than what I typically prefer. Still a tasty treat on a warm summer evening.

DavidAust (31) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 28, 2015
Hoppy aroma with a hint of stone fruit. Golden colour with reasonable carbonation. little haze if any - quite clear. crisp white head which lasted moderately but left good lacing all the way to the end. Taste was quite mixed with a somewhat sweet /malty start quickly over ridden my an almost salty bitterness. Palate is long with a lingering bitterness well after the drink is done. Happy with this, not my favourite but I would happily drink again or order when out.”

superspak (3327) - Michigan, USA - JUN 18, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 12/9/2014. Pours lightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, honey, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/earthy hops and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, honey, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of pine/herbal/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange zest, pine, caramel, honey, toasted biscuit, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, balance, and robustness of citrus/earthy hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good American IPA. All around good complexity, balance, and robustness of citrus/earthy hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. This seemed to have some English style influence in flavors, but still felt like an American IPA overall. A nicely enjoyable offering.

355 ml bottle into glass. Slight hop nose. Deep red/golden beer with solid white head. Mineral water mouthfeel. Initial malt taste is followed by sharp bitters then a lingering floral finish. It’s good.

12oz screwtop bottle. Wasn’t expecting much and didn’t get much but it was surprisingly drinkable. Fairly bland IPA but not horrible.
