COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA has an Intense hop aroma and strong malt body, followed by a smooth clean finish. Pacific Northwest malted barley with hops from the fields of Yakima have come together to create this IPA that is very hoppy but very balanced with complex malt flavors. The IPA is best served cool, not ice cold so as not to subdue the hop aroma. The perfect beer for any day.

Picked this 12oz can at the COOP a couple days ago.. Pours with a decent white head that shows okay lacing atop a clear golden brew. Nose is nicely hopped... tropical fruitiness and onion/garlic.. weird combination but the allium notes are not overblown. Good hoppy bitterness that is balanced barely by a decent amount of residual pale maltiness... Not a big fan of the onion/garlic hops but they work in this stretch and aren’t overdone. Body is light/medium... carbonation could be a touch higher IMO.

Draft to 8oz glass Sweet, flowery, and overflowing with tropical fruit aroma. Clear amber with a thin creamy head. Sweet fruity taste with a nice bitter finish.

This seemed like a well balanced and classy IPA. And it gets to the point where there is very little to distinguish between all of these craft-brewed IPAs. There are so many of them and most of them are quite good. I would have rated this one a little higher but there remained a slight off-putting note in the finish. I really couldn’t tell what it was. Cardboardish? Stale?

Elwood (3223) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Serving: Draft. It pours a light amber color with a white head. Fruity nose with a light maltiness and pine. Well balanced bitterness in the flavor. Malt, light caramel, pine, and apple notes. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Decent.

Pours a clear orangish gold with a frothy white head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma of resin, grapefruit, pine, fruity esters and some sweet pale malts. Taste is grapefruit, pine and the bitterness is a bit astringent on the finish. Overall this is a big hoppy ipa which some may like but it’s all about balance in my books.

MadRobin (1963) - Silver Spring, USA - JUN 12, 2013
On tap half pint at Gilly's Beer & Fine Wine in Rockville, MD. Slightly hazy, medium amber-copper with a creamy off-white head and lacing that starts out great but slides back quickly, leaving a few traces. Aroma of caramel, pine, citrus and grass with the hops and malt in almost equal balance. Taste of pineapple, caramel, citrus and pine. Medium body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
