COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pale Ale's on the coasts of this country are turning into hoppy monsters, but our beer is more mild, and about balance. It has enough bitterness to match the maltiness provided by the pale malt base. It gets its citrus zing from extensive dry-hopping with Cascade hops. This beer was first made in a few small test batches in 2003. The response was so incredibly positive, that it has worked it’s way into a year round beer. A hoppy IPA in the central plains... how exciting!

This was a gift from a friend who usually gives me beer of the month offerings.Pours a hazy amber with a white head. Nose of floral and citrus hops. Medium body. Flavor is caramel malts and the floral and citrus hops there were in the aroma. Finishes lightly bitter. More like an APA than an IPA no matter what part of the country you are in.

Bottle. Orange with active carbonation and a decent sized white head. Floral, golden raisins, corn bread and honey. Tastes just like it smells, light balanced sweet and dry finish. Body is lighter with a foamy feel.

Beer of month club offering. Pours clear gold - ice tea like. Not much of a nose - some faint pine. Taste of some citrus, caramel and bitter hops - but kinda rushed (goes to the bitterness quickly). Ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
