COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION


A bold IPA in the modern, West Coast style, but with plenty of malt character from our robust Maris Otter. Generous quantities of Columbus and Cascade hops give this bitter beer resinous, piney, and citrus-like flavors while a bit of Czech Saaz hops adds a touch of spice.

Malts: floor-malted Maris Otter, caramalt, wheat; flaked barley, malted rye
Hops: Columbus; Cascade; Saaz, dry-hopped with Cascade
Food Pairings: assertive, spicy foods, grilled salmon & shrimp, pizza.

The aroma is fantastic, off the scales. The beer comes in at 140 IBU, according to the bartender. However, the taste pales in comparison to the wonderful aroma. Buy it to smell it.

jrob21 (3430) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 19, 2016
Sample at the source. A little more west coast with some pine bitterness on the finish. After drinking hazy juice bombs so much recently it is nice to be taken back to the American IPA west coast roots. Some orange citrus fruit mid palate. Bitter grapefruit and pine finish. Old skoool.

adasko (1875) - Poznan, POLAND - JUN 5, 2016
Golden color, slightly hazy, tiny head, great lacing. Very nice fruity aroma, mango and papaya notes. Also a bit of piney, green ones. Very dry, very crisp in taste. Bit more green, less fruity. Nice bitterness in the back. Rather classic west coast IPA on a green side. Good, not mind blowing.

Guruhso (413) - Grindsted, DENMARK - APR 2, 2016
Draft at hoppy loft. Hoppy aroma of citrus, pine and grapefruit with spicy notes. The flavour is heavy bitter. Lingering bitterness. The body is light and the texture is juicy.

PriorL (3069) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAR 4, 2016

Sampled draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Hazy orange, creamy white. Nose is milky butter, buttery dough, sugar, popcorn. Taste is milky yeast, plaster, dough, sugar, stone fruit, more butter. Butter & plaster body. Way too heavy on the butter & milky yeast. Score looks decent here. Bad keg maybe?
