COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This IPA is named after the Hexagenia mayfly hatch (the largest in North America) that occurs every year during the summer months on the Fall River. Our bold IPA is also well balanced with a strong malt backbone to offset the barrage of hops that create a shifting flavor of hop bitterness and aroma.

22 oz bottle. Pours golden orange with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma of tangerine, pine, light malt, a bit of peach and mango. Taste is grapefruit, pine, orange, hop resin, grain, cracker, slight peach, and medium bitterness. Medium body, nice carb or maybe a little too much, resinous astringency, pretty dry. Mostly resinous and hoppy, typical west coast IPA, but has a nice fruity brightness to it. A little heavy on the resinous bitterness over the course of a whole bottle, but overall very enjoyable.

On tap in Mineral, near Lassen. Good enough that I went back for more. Quite hoppy. Pale reddish brown colour with a frothy head.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - APR 25, 2014
On tap at the bar located at the Red Lion Inn in Redding, CA. Medium bodied IPA with a great balance of hop and malt. I wasn’t expecting much, but this Redding area brewer really hit the mark.

Bottle. Aroma of nectarines and citrus hops. Taste is nice and light bitter with a medium finish. Surprised about how sessionable this beer is.
