COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our West Coast inspired India Pale Ale is rich in flavor and abundant in citrus, pine, and floral aromatics created through a wonderful infusion of Citra hops. Completely refreshing and possessing a medium mouthfeel, crisp bitterness, and nearly balanced malts. Finishes dry with a head that creates beautiful lacing down the entire glass. A truly inspired and coveted IPA.

Clear amberish copper with a thin white cap. The nose is a bit resiny and grapefruit-rind-y. Smooth flavor with mild but balanced bitterness, floral resin flavors, earthy caramel sweetness and just a wee kiss of semisweet boozy bitterness.

Was surprised by how dark this poured. Taste was slick and deep with some hop lingering bitterness. On the darker side of an IPA with more piney, resiny flavors than bright floral flavors.

Clear amber, edging closer to golden. Aroma has some resins, pine needles and oils are coming out also strong. Generously dry-hopped. Taste is also resiny, pretty bitter and dry. Slight fruitiness there but mainly pine character. Is yelling: "I am American!"

Can from Tokyu Foodshow for the train ride home on International IPA day. Nice aromas of grass, citrus, grapefruit pith and pine resin. Taste is more of the same with wonderful malt balance. Great bitter finish with underlying sweetness. Nice full body with a sticky mouthfeel.

This is a rather good IPA. It’s a nice golden orange color w/ a foamy head and lacing in big rings. This has a good, strong hop character, esp. if you like things on the more piney side of life. There is actual malt character to this w/o being all kinds of sweet, which is great. It adds a nice bit of toasty character which compliments the hops nicely. It’s got a good full bodied mouthfeel and drinks big w/o being too heavy or sticky. I like this stuff and it doesn’t even really have my favorite kind of hop profile so I figure that means it’s pretty well made stuff. Give it a try.
