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.

Nose of moderate caramel notes, light toast, floral earthy hop notes. Pours golden amber, thin head, nice clarity. Flavors of soft caramel sweetness, toasted malts, a touch of herbal and peppery hop notes. Light citrus. Easy to drink pleasant softer IPA

I’m not the biggest fan of pale ales, but this one was quite nicely balanced between the bready and stronger hop flavors. Decent effervescence and smooth mouthfeel. Copper colored with a hoppy aroma as well. Nice drink overall.

Pours a clear copper with visible carbonation and a thin tan head that fades. Hoppy, floral aroma, but not overbearing. Light, slightly effervescent mouthfeel. Strong hoppy flavor, but balanced finish. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for the Daystrom M-5

Had a few of these while passing through Wichita this week. These were bottle pours at the restaurant. A copper brown ale with off white head, aroma of crisp hops, citrus and floral, taste is moderately malty with a fine hops forward flare and excellent bitter finish. A few of the glasses warmed to room temperature and the malt really came forward, very full bodied and tasty. I am a little surprised to see that this is an IPA as I thought it was an APA and a fine one at that. Samll difference and while it may be on the gentle side of an IPA it is an excellent brew.

Beerman6686 (4302) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2013
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 (1852) - 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.
