COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The descent from the top of the mountain to the bottom should be exhilarating. Whether it’s a gradual descent or a screaming race that gets you to the bottom, this beer is created to help you enjoy the experience.

This beer is a hop lover’s dream that has balance you will appreciate. We created it for you so you can take time out from the rigors of life and descend to a valley full of hops – sounds good, no, great!

Hops: Centennial, Chinook, Cascade, Galaxy, Warrior

Brewed with a process called "Hop Bursting," resulting in a beer with a balance and quality that you will not forget!

22 oz bottle- Pours golden orange with a one finger pillowy white head that leaves a ring of nice lace. Aroma is sweet malt and spicy hops. The taste is sweet light malt, well balanced, hops are there imparting a mild dry finish, not really getting any usual citrus and maybe a little pine. Body is medium and carbonation is medium. Not bad.

AWISLguy (1647) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 17, 2012
On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe. Pours orangey amber with a white head - terrific spoty lacing. Aroma has sweet toffee, pine, resin. Taste is sweet caramel, resin and citrus. Some pine. A bit rough. Becomes more and more bitter throughout the glass. Finishes bitter with hints of sweet. Better than non hoppy brews, but rough.

Tap @ Brewforia: Semi-cloudy copper with a white head. Aroma of pine, juniper and all around great NW IPA elements. Flavors are floral with junipers and a great bitter aftertaste. A good offering.
