COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This bold, blonde American IPA employs a healthy dose of wheat malt and generous amounts of Crystal, Centennial, and Citra hops. The hops provide a great citrusy bouquet and abundant notes of grapefruit and orange, while the wheat malt provides a crisp tartness to this lighter-bodied IPA.

Light orangish/gold pour, white head. Nice floral aroma. The flavor is very citrusy, grassy, a bit dank. Light malt, the hops shine. Good stuff.

adnielsen (10484) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Tap @ Free State. Pours a orange golden appearance with little head. Spicy, grapefruity, lightly piney hoppy, a bit sweet toasted malty aroma. Light veggie, somewhat bitter, piney, light vanilla flavor. Ok.

In short: A low-profile american pale ale labelled as an IPA.
How: Bottle 12oz, consumed relatively fresh a few weeks after purchase.
The look: Clear pale golden body topped by a small off-white head leaving some lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose of medium intensity is citrusy hops with light piney notes. The fruity aroma has a nice freshness quality but lacks oomph. Typical clean mouthfeel with medium body and medium carbonation. Taste offers a frail semi-sweet malt backbone with mild caramel and some pastry. A moderate amount of fruity hops with a character sitting in between fresh citrus fruits and dried fruits. Light off-putting vegetable notes. Bitterness of medium intensity with a little citric sharpness. Piney notes in the comeback. Not a hop-bomb and certainly not a malt bomb either, this is a low-profile well balanced beer that most breweries would label as an APA. Could have been a decent generic american pale ale but the light vegetable notes bring it down to a below average take on the style. If actual stormchasers were as bold as this Stormchaser Summer IPA, then stormchasers would be people who sometimes go outside on a cloudy day without an umbrella.

Aroma is pine, dank hops and hints of wheat and earth. The flavor is citrus, light tropical fruit/pine needles, wheat, slightly creamy and a mild/medium bitter finish.

ajnepple (5058) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 7, 2015
On tap at Q39 in KC. Clear bronze appearance with a lacy white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, floral notes and toasted grain. Similar flavor, adding a moderate hop bitterness and light malt sweetness. Pretty average for an IPA, not bad overall.

Pint on tap. Clear copper with a lasting island of foam. Nose is resin, juicy orange and grapefruit, and a touch of caramel. Tastes the same with a touch of toast. Light-medium body has medium carbonation and a good balance.
