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.

Life is loaded with peaks and valleys, where we associate the valleys with the reward post ascending the peak. Like the flow of the stream slows in the valley, put the cell phone away, sit back and relax with this IPA, and enjoy the journey.

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!

Malt: NW Two Row, Bonlander Munich, Melanoidin, Crystal 60, Carafoam
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!

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Bottle:   Orangish in color, a bit hazy, large frothy white head, nice lacing.   Dank hoppy aroma, and yeah, I mean dank.   Somewhat of a soft earthy/soily like hop start, not too bitter, moderate sweetness.   Seems oily but without being too biting.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Lingering hops, a bit citrusy at times.   Comes across as a solid example and is well made for the style.

Can. Pours hazy amber with creamy head, white in color, leaves behind no lacing. Floral aroma, some pine, a little dank. Caramel as well. Taste is good and bitter, with enough sweetness up front to keep it in check. Medium full body, texture on the thick side, average carbonation. Overall - a totally solid ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bmerz (732) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Can, fairly fresh. Very standard looking IPA with a little lace and head. Aroma is very floral with a mild sweetness, dry grain, and cedar. Taste is similar to this with subdued clean bitterness and a cedar end. Feel is soft and medium bodied. A very easy and well executed IPA with just enough character.
