COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This flavorful beer is made in the style of the India Pale Ale Style originally manufactured in Great Britain for their colonies in India, but with an American twist. The harsh travel that the beer had to survive required a strong, hoppy beer. The Hops and the high level of alcohol helped buffer the beer through its long travels. Made with flavorful and full bodied Pale Ale malt combined with a touch of caravienne for color and carapils for body, the rich flavor of this beer is matched and enhanced by a very generous portion of Centennial and Cascade hops. The Cascades give this beer its distinctive floral aroma and a uniquely American character.
O.G. - 14.5/1058. Hops - 48.5 IBUs.

This poured an amber color with an off white head. Aroma was grassy and floral hops with light grain and toast behind. Flavor was similar, lightly bitter, but caramel sweetness overpowers the hops taste. Meh.

RSRIZZO (1847) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 5, 2013
12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Shaker at 40°. Color is a slightly hazy golden amber with good carbonation and a small off white head. Aroma of toffee and hops. It has a medium body with a smooth moth feel. Flavor is toasted malt, caramel, a hint of pine and biscuit then a light citrus note shows. In the after taste the citrus comes out more with some bitterness leaving it with a dry feel. Overall its a tasty well balanced IPA.

Gription79 (2158) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is roasted malts, some woody hop notes, a little citrus. The flavor is bready/toasty malts, pine, spicy. The bitterness is harsh and gives any astringent perception.

12 oz bottle to glass. Recd in trade from RobertDale had rift after a 3F alpha king. Only aroma I got was alight barnyard which I actually kinda like. Pour was a clear light amber. Taste was grapefruit and hops with bitter hops at end that last. Slightly too much bitter for me but it wasn’t overpowering. Thanks Bob

12 oz bottle-Copper pour w/o much head. Malty aroma. Mild hop bite up front, somewhat metalic flavor to it. Had some malt on the finish. Smooth & easy to drink, pretty basic brew. I would not call this an IPA, sure seemed like a Pale Ale to me.

Steasy66 (807) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Copper with one finger off white head. I might be losing my mind, but it smells intensely of rye to me with a hint of floral hops. Very sweet flavor and lightly hopped. Hard to distinguish any flavor from the hops since they just provide some bitterness in the finish. The taste is dominated by malty sweetness. Carbonation is fine, body is alright, bit thick for this style.
