This is one of the top IPAs I have enjoyed. The award winning ale was enjoyed at the brewery in Cleveland on Derby day 2011. The place was packed on a Saturday night. I found a seat at the bar and enjoyed this one slowly. The complex hops flavors of three varieties. Th citrus and pine nuts were all blended together. They were balanced with a perfect ABV of 7.5%. The lacing down the glass and the atmosphere of the brewery was a memorable experience. The smooth finish leaving you with the bitterness that is IPA alone.

On tap at Fat Heads in Cleveland.
Pours a nice gold to light copper color with a nice white head and a good amount of lacing. Nice retention as well. The nose brought forward a large amount of hops ranging from citrus to floral to tropical. Altogether a really nice package from a mixed back of hops. I canít recall them at the moment, but there was a sign on the wall that seemed to indicate the hops used in this one. The flavor hit the spot as well with a nice hop character coming through as the dominant character and a good, brisk finish. A bit of alcohol in the finish, though not too much. Terribly drinkable. I wish this were available locally and werenít quite as high in ABV.
Serving type: on-tap
