Full bodied and noticeably more amber in color than most California IPA. Our flagship IPA is bursting with fruity hop character, balanced well by a rich, silky body. The Simcoe hop makes itʼs distinct presence known with pine and passionfruit notes with Cascade filling in. Itʼs hop aroma is complex and hearty, and is mirrored in the palette. This IPA has a pronounced malt profile with a touch of caramel showing, yet the beer finishes dry. The bigger body gives more of a base for the hop character to grow from, and more to balance.

Bottle from Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours dark golden with a thick off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a medium-bodied pale malt flavor with a very bitter piney finish.

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 10, 2015
Bottle, just a couple weeks old. Deep golden near amber hue with touch of coppery sunset highlights, a lovely head and lacework. Not really a west coast styled IPA however. More akin to what you find on the east coast with a sightly malty and nutty background. Oh there still be hops here with resiny, piney and light tropical notes, faintly dank as well. Solid mouthfeel and dry metallic finish. Is a good somewhat balanced brew but nothing I wouldn’t be able to buy locally.

pine and citrus up front, with a decent malt backbone for balance. dryer than the others, and a touch older (2-3 mo) just like the Mayberry.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2015 On draft. Aroma of rose or orange blossom. Flavors of citrus hops and a bit of pine resin before caramel and faint chocolate malts come in. A great IPA.
