We salute the warmest month in the Northern Hemisphere with a lighter, crisper IPA of the Month. We started July with four different malts, then spiced her up with additions of fresh ground coriander and fresh grated ginger. A lemony tang from Citra™ hops in the flavoring and aroma stages provides perfect balance and a refreshing finish to this sweet, dry summer beer.

Pours from bomber surprising a golden clear hue, forming huge head of white foam. Aroma of lemony oak, damp earth and leafs, almost a minty, citrus character. Flavour of lemon peel, mint, ginger, freshly cut Scottish field grass, with a fresh hop balance. WOW, interesting IPA beer, recommended.

On tap at world of beer charlotte. Cloudy grapefruit colour with lace sheet. Dry bitter with citra but spice mafkes it a little interesting. Hoppy saison without the yeast.

Suttree (6075) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales. Cloudy gold, loose white head. Smell nice and hoppy, with lots pine and grape fruit. Smooth palate. Big fresh hop pop in the first sip, with some sweet malt notes in the background.

22oz bomber from The Beer Store Wilson. Golden hue, good clarity (can see fingers on the other side of the glass) with somewhat diminishing white fizzy head. Okay lacing. Strong citrus (tropical fruit) and lemon aromas. Light pineapple citrus hop up front with a short mangoish citrus finish. Soft carbonation. One of my least favorite out of the series so far.

Very clean and pale straw blonde with one finger of tight white head. The nose is very bright and green with hops, wonderful leafy note with a super nuanced quality. Very fresh and green flavor with a bright and clear hop profile. Raw hoppy notes with a very subtle spice character. Ginger and coriander kept in check (thank god). Very well executed.

22 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market, Elizabeth City, NC. Orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of lemon zest, oranges, damp malt, and rose petals. Decent taste of bitter hops and sweet caramel malt with notable touches of lemon. I suppose this beer achieves what it is trying to but summer IPAs are not really my thing. Just average for me.

Bottle, from Triangle Wine, good aroma sweet, peach, apricot, some lemon. Clean golden orange color, good head, faded quick, little to no lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Medium body, light creamy mouthfeel, bitter sweet finish. Nice . Aroma, best part, nice mix of hop scents. Aroma best part,nice range of hope scents. Flavor little more bitter, on the citrusy side. Bitter grapefruit side. Aroma has more going on.
