Draft from IHP. Pours turbid copper with dark straw on the bottom and a uniform, creamy ecru head. Nose is earthy hops, resin, caramel malt. Tastes smooth, rich and creamy, with an up-front caramelly malt hit, and mid-palate earthy hops. Mild funk in this, and some finishing fruit. Finishes so smooth it feels almost nitrogenated, and has a bitter finish. Leaves copious lace, too.

Very nice IPA! This is made exclusively with the Galena hop, which imparts a really intense dry and citrus note all over this beer. It pours a cloudy and hazy orange color with a nice-sized off-white head. There was plenty of lacing around the edges of the glass, as well. I smelled and tasted a lot of grapefruit, orange and hop resin. The use of one hop makes this IPA kind of one dimensional, but itís a very good dimension. These one-hop beers are a great way to smell and taste what each variety of hops does to a beer. Thatís one of the reasons why I miss Sly Foxís Hop Project so much. But Iron Hill does a very nice job with the galena hop. This is a very delicious and enjoyable IPA!
