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!

UDBeernut (1956) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Six pack of cans picked up from the Amaco by my hotel. Once the can is opened, some foam comes out the top. Don’t worry mon’ it’s no infected. Could not tell u what it looks like since it was enjoyed in can form. Nose has light resin. Taste is balanced, maybe a small fraction to the bitter side. Some malt sweetness prevails, resin. Medium body. Well done.

Big Frothy white head. Golden color. Big caramel malt and grapefruit notes. Medium full body. Hoppy with lots of citrus. Decent aggressive bitter finish. Nice west coast IPA.

mjg74 (2632) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Canned. Pours a hazy golden/orange color. Huge head. A bit too much carbonation. Some sediment floating about. Sugary sweetness with a strong hoppy aroma. Well hopped. Spiced hoppiness up front. Some maltiness with a hint of sweetness. The excessive carbonation hurts.

Sammer (1068) - Plano, Texas, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Bottle. Copper pour with a large pillowy head. Taste is bold hops, pine, dough and citrus. A nice, somewhat boozy finish. Nice.
